Joy!

Arg!  I made this card for last week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, but forgot to post it and link it up before I left for Thanksgiving!  Oh well, at least it's also for Wplus9's Color Cue 10 challenge (I used Hannah Craner's light blue, white, red, and kraft combo), which is still open!
The "Joy" stamp is from Taylored Expressions, colored with copics (B00, BG10, and BG23 for the blue, R22, R24, and R27 for the red). The dotted border is Waltzingmouse, then I cut and embossed using Nestie Labels 4.  The paper is..you guessed it, Echo Park!  Added some red baker's twine and embossed the card base using PTI's text impression plate, and ta-da!

My Christmas card box is getting more and more cards added to it...I hope there'll be enough when I start sending them out!

As I mentioned, I was out of town for Thanksgiving, so I did not get to wish everyone a happy day and let you know how thankful I am for all the inspiration from your blogs and all the warm fuzzies from your comments.  And how thankful I am to have found not only a hobby that I love, but that has some of the most awesomest [1] supportive people on the interwebs!

Thank you!!!

[1] Yes, "most awesomest," because y'all are that awesome.

Ooh, double superlative AND use of poetic license? Nice. Like the card too, of course -- the color choices are just great. Love the texture and twine too. And the layout. Ooh, I feel a case coming on....
Glad you're back!

Oohhh, aaaah, I really love this one, Meg!! The CAS design, the nestie label, the twine and of course the kraft are all so perfect together.
