joyful and happy

Hi folks. I'm wrapping up the week of play with the Joyful stamp set from STAMPlorations with a fun card. I mentioned previously that I was smitten with the teensy "ho!" stamp down in the right corner... well here's what I did with it.

I thought I was going to stamp "ho ho ho" onto the longer speech bubbles from PTI Bubble talk and then use the "happy" Christmas sentiment to underscore the fun. But then I opted for a whole lotta speech bubbles, including the ovals from Avery Elle Oh Yeah and just went with a single "ho".

I used various PPs from an old KI Memories Holiday pad. And the sentiments other than "ho" are from Sentiment Builders: Christmas.

And to spice it up just a bit, I added three silver star sequins. It's amazing how they, with their dimension and shine, take the card up a notch. So I'm going to join the party at Virginia's View Metallic Challenge. And at Inkspirational #69 where the cue word is Shine!

Next week I'll be hopping with the STAMPlorations DT girls showcasing the five stamp sets in the November release. They too are tons of fun and I've got a quiz for you. Take a gander at one of the new sets.

We have a special guest designer joining us next week with this stamp set. Any guesses at who it might be?

Enjoy your weekend and stay warm.
