Joy To The World

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! :)
Hope all is well?!...

Today, I'm doing a little bit of everything. Relaxing, baking, crafting, playing with my kids...just a typical Sunday for me. ;)

Well, I saw the current Fusion Card Challenge and just knew I had to play along! I mean the sketch called to me and so did the inspiration photo...and I like when that happens, don't you?!...

So I did a little mixing and matching of both. I used the sketch for where to put my stamp but also went off the inspiration photo for the 'joy'. 

This time of the year always seems to get me with the 'sunlight'...I usually take my photos in the same spot every time, though it seems that 'my spot' isn't the best right now.?. So, I'll be searching around the house for a new spot and see what happens. Please do excuse my 'washed out' look on the upper right side of my photo. Thank you. :)

I used some kraft cardstock for my base and then stamped my 'joy' in a dark drown ink. After, I used some colored pencils to fill in my leaves, banner, and to add some little berries. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!

  7. Your little image has filled ME with Joy, Shelly! So pretty, especially on the kraft! Thrilled that you shared this in the Fusion gallery. Your Sunday sounds like fun!
    PS: I hear you about finding the 'right' photo spots when the days are shorter and the lights are 'dimmer'. Even so, your photo looks great; not washed out from my perspective!
