Joy

Happy Tuesday to all of you. uhh.. just edited those photos and write this posting. I will put the blog candy up a bit later after i have done my errands.. I am always worried if i get Mr. Linky working on my blog.
A little gift idea for somebody to give for Christmas. Many of my crafting friends love charms and this tiny decorated matchbox does just to the trick. To decorate the matchbox i have used Hero Arts pearl stickers, Nestabilities Label 9 and the scrolls on card and box are made with Shapeabilities Fancy Tags.
The card is made with Making Memories paper that was released at Michaels during Valentines, but how pretty does it look also for a Winter card. I have made this card for Breast Cancer Awareness week. Please take care of yourself!!!


Stamps: Hanglar Stanglar, Sentiment: Stampin up "circle of Friendship"
Papers: Stampin up, Making Memories
Embellishments: Prima Marketing, Making Memories, Hero Arts, Stickles
Tools: Nestabilites (Label 9 and Fancy Ribbon Tags), Martha Stewart (Snowflakes border punch), Stampin up (Circle punch), Sizzix Matchbox Die through Stampin up
Other: Copic Sketch, Neenah Ultra White Smooth, Memento ink and the box is taped with my favorite tape "Scorpal Tape" love that stuff!!!

Thank you for reading.. i see you in a bit with the candy :-)

Love the swirl kind of thing behind the image and the "joy" ribbon thing (haha)!! Also gorgeous papers and the just enough black makes this a very stylish card, love it. Ofcourse I also like the idea of the matchbos filled with little goodies, NICE!

Liefs, Renata

p.s. I would love to send you a little rak to thank you for being such an inspiration for me, and not only in crafting if you know what I mean ;) I saw I missed your birthday so I guess now is a good time too, to send it, haha! You have my mail (or else it's in my sidebar)so if you don't mind I would like to have your address.

This is a beautiful card and for such an important cause. A very close friend of mine died from Breast Cancer this morning. Coincidentally her name was Joy.

Your card is really uplifting and inspiring for me on what has been a sad day.
