Joy's Life Holiday Cards Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!!!   Welcome to the Joy's Life Holiday Cards Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Martha's blog, then you're in the right place. If you've just stumbled upon this post and would like to start at the beginning, start here at Joy's Life

I have to say I had a hard time deciding which stamp I was going to use because there are so many great choices in the New Wintery Puns set.  You have to check them out.You can purchase them Here  They are a Limited Edition stamp so get yourself a set before they are sold out because once they are sold out they won't be available until next year.   

For my projects today I made 2 different cards to share with you.  Here is the first card.

I really love how this card came out.  I think the holly leaves are so cute. 

I used the Winter Puns from Joy's Life Stamps. 

I used Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer on this card. 
The Cricut cartridge I used is Winter Woodland.  For the card base I actually used the Tag feature and hid the hole for the tag on my Gypsy.  I made 2 of them and welded them together.  The Holly leaves are also from Winter Woodland

This is the second card I made. 

This little bird is so cute. 

This has to be one of my favorite stamps in the set.  It can be used with a coffee cup or like I used it. 

You can see the Smooch Spritz a little better on this card.
The Cricut cartridges I used for this card are the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy and 3 Birds on Parade.  I created these cards while on the Joy's Life Design Team.

Here is a picture of the Wintery Puns Stamps so you can see for yourself how awesome this set really is.  You can purchase them at Joy's Life

Here is the line up for the blog hop.  Hope you have fun checking out the projects my fellow Design Team Members created.  Don't forget to sign up to be a follower of my blog :)
