Second Helpings of JOY


As promised, I'm back with another card for Fusion: Joy!  this time with a little whimsy:

The fantastic Nichole Heady of PTI strung little pom-poms for her card, and I thought it was the cutest idea - thanks,  Nichole!  I created a little JOY [Concord & 9th again - this time in plaid - swoon!] for a tiny mantle - and thought it was just about time that one of my favorite wood panels saw some light!

 
I'm off to play with even more grey for another challenge - these folks are really making me a happy challenge participant!

Loving your gray creations...that color just makes me happy especially with white or yellow!

The poms are such a sweet touch!

Beautiful! Again, the gray, the adorably white little pom poms and all is well now!

Both of your "helpings" are carbon copies in that they're both CAS, lovely creations where you can definitely see the influence that the inspiration photo provided you with. The plaid & woodgrain (EF) combo is to die for!

Michele, this is such a fabulous card! Look at the gorgeous gray. Wow. I love it with the woodgrain embossing. The joy is perfection and I absolutely adore your pom-pom string. Fantastic work! Yep, this brings me joy! :) Hugs!

Hey Michele! This is such a striking card!! Love the simplicity of it, but then you realize there's a lot going on with the fluffy pom poms, the woodgrain, the matted panel, just wonderful! Reminds me of home decor, how oversized letters are so popular to put up on a mantle now.

Woodgrain and gray. You really are in card heaven, Michele. Love the pom poms. Good luck mailing them. ;)

Oh my, how I LOVE the subtle plaid on your alphas, and those pom-poms are too cute with your woodgrain mantle, Michele! I also really love that you chose gray for your woodgrain background...it's so striking!

Lisa said...

Oh the pompoms...what a CUTE idea!! Love the subtle gray plaid on the Joy and that rustic woodgrain background. Another beauty Michele!!

What a fabulous card Michele! How fun to string pom poms together! Love the wood grain panel too. Trying to catch up here my friend. Hugs, Brenda

Donna said...

Very sweet. X
I agree with Marybeth. You are showing such a depth of talent... and all with just the one die.
When I grow up I hope to be as good as you. X

Two 'Joys' in one day, Michele ... you're spoiling us! You know already how I feel about that subtle plaid ... LOVE those pom poms strung across the mantle ... and that background texture ... it's luscious! Hugs, Anita :)
