Joy to the World with Shady Tree Studio

Coffee of the Day - Eggnog, of course! using the last bit from the holidays.... so tasty!

Hello and Merry Christmas to you! :)

I'm singing 'Joy to the World' to each and every one of you this morning! If you go by the Shady Tree Studio blog, you will get to see all kinds of wonderful holiday inspiration this week with the fabulous creations by the Design Team.

My card today uses the set, Nativity. I love the beautiful images Nancy drew that take us back to that glorious time several thousand years ago. I used my SU! inks & watercolor brushes to color the image. The sentiment was stamped onto a small tag that was also sprayed with glimmer mist and then popped up on foam tape. Papers are Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather. I found one of my oldie but goodie SU! bg stamps, Script, to use on the card base. Some crochet trim and crinkled seam tape (also sprayed with glimmer mist) help add to the shabby feel. A few dew drops finish off the card.

I am so excited to see what everyone else has to show us! and please be sure to extend a kind welcome to both Carla as a new DT member and Joanne as our Guest Designer. :)
