Joyful Merry Christmas

     We're back to the alphabet prompts at Beccy's Place 30 Days of Holidays and today's letter is "J."

     What's better than the Joy of Christmas as shown by a Jolly snowman with an ornament hanging from his Jaunty nose?

I followed the color inspiration from the
3rd column at the TicTacToe board at

     I colored with ProMarkers and I'm calling those greens "Jade, Juniper, or Jungle" to add a few more "J"s.  Don't they look great against the glacier blues? 

     I cut the image with a simple, square die from Spellbinders, then used another larger die from that set to cut glittered, white CS for the frame behind it. 

     I had already used an Elizabeth Craft Designs sentiment die to cut out the "Merry Christmas" which I used on another project.  The snowflakes were all cut with various Spellbinders dies.  I used white gel ink to pop them from the blue background, adding some dimension at the same time.

     This is my second post and that's all I have for today.  I'm going to go and make decisions on the images for the next several Christmas cards for Beccy's Place, just to see if I can work ahead a bit.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

The first thing that caught my eye were those big, beautiful snowflakes NC, they are fabulous! I like the way you added a little bit of white backing around the parts that were over the blue card stock... great idea to help them stand out. Lovely.
