Welcome to this month's blog hop titled "Christmas Joy".  It's hard to believe Christmas is only 64 days away!

Now is the best time to plan your Christmas cards and gifts and we're here to give you the inspiration you need.  If you've arrived from Phyllis Sheppard's blog, welcome! If you're starting here, so glad you joined us!  

 FACT: I planned this entire card around this striped satin ribbon.  Pictures simply do not do it justice! 


 I used the Flurry of Wishes stamp set (it also comes in a great Bundle with a coordinating snowflake punch!) in Smoky Slate ink and randomly stamped snowflakes on Very Vanilla cardstock. I did 'stamp off' several layers of ink on scratch paper before stamping on the vanilla cardstock.


The large snowflake is stamped in Smoky Slate ink as well and punched out using the Flower Medallion Punch.  The center of that snowflake houses one of the beautiful Iced Rhinestones. 


I heat embossed the greeting from the stamp set "And Many More" in silver embossing powder on Silver Foil paper.  I must have taken a dozen pictures of this tag and not one captured the true sparkle.


Ohhhh, and let's not forget about that RIBBON! I splurged – 20" and wrapped it alllll the waaaayyyy around the card!  

Don't stop hopping now – The amazing Lori Mueller has stunning taste and a great project to share!
