Exciting News - Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #255

Happy Monday friends.  I have some exciting news to share with you - I am now on the Design Team over at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  This is my first post as a team member and I am so thrilled to be joining the team as I love making Christmas Cards.

 Marcia is our hostess this week and her challenge is to use the word Joy on your Christmas Card.

For my card I used Stampabilities Joy to the World stamp I got at Hobby Lobby.  I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed with black embossing power, but you can't tell it in the photo.
I die cut it with MFT Stitched Ovals and matted it with a black MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Oval.  I then mounted this with foam tape.   I was trying to decide on which DSP I wanted to use and had it laying on the this patterned paper from an older Martha Stewart Christmas Mat Pad.  I thought this would be perfect, as Jesus was our greatest gift at Christmas, so I went with that.  I used MFT Blueprints 20 die for the scallop mat.

Now be sure to hop over to the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge blog to see all the fabulous creations by the Designers.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
