Joy~

n. the emotion of great happiness caused by holiday anticipation

Yep, that about sums it up.

As hard as it is for me to believe Thanksgiving is really next week I am more than ready to dig into some Christmas and Winter projects.

And to start I made this for a dear friend~

Both the card and bracelet were made using my Cricut Imagine and the Snow Angel cartridge.

The colors found in both the deer and the flood filled shapes of my bracelets went perfectly with papers in DCWV The Winter Holiday Stack, so I used it for my card base.

I love the blues and pinks mixed in with the more traditional holiday colors.

Now I have the joy of waiting to see if my little gift brings my friend as much happiness as it does me.

Hmmm…how long til we can open gifts?
