This week the Twisted Sister challenge was issued by Shirley make a Christmas card using white, red, black and one other color. And, my sweet lil DIL (JamiePTS) and I challenged each other to use Beate's Twisted Circular Easel design as well. Beate, this tutorial is amazing, and I cannot wait to use it again! Thank you so much!
I used Spellbinder Circles as a base, and topped them with the doily die as well. The circles are framed using Cheery Lynn's holly branches and the bulb is from Memory Box.
I think a lot about joy, and what that really means. And truly it is a gift from God. Circumstances change, but God does not. And He has given joy to me in my children, and grandchildren, (and even a stamping DIL!) That is JOY!
Thanks for looking!

WOW! This is going in my faves! I LOVE your beautiful layers of white and the red peeking through! Your lovely verse and that bit of greenery are stunning! I know you said you struggled with this but it certainly doesn't look like it from where I sit! Just gorgeous, my friend!

This was hard???? You're kidding, right???? Sis, this Psalm verse projects JOY like God intended us to have in Him. You have such am amazing talent to take so many different elements (nesties, Dies, flowers Punches, vines, ribbon and flourishes) and make something so incredible every time!!
This card IS pure Joy, seeing how you use your gift as an expression of your love for the Word- delicate, and a real treasure in every aspect of the word!! Love this card - and you too! Hugs X a million!
