Lots of "JOY" in Hinkley

That's right, I am still creating in Hinkley. This is my last creation in Hinkley for this trip. Shanna & I have to hit the road bright & early Thursday morning. I have to get back to the store so that Trevor can get to his work on time & Shanna needs to spend time with her husband because it is their 10th Wedding Anniversary. Happy Anniversary!

I am submitting this card to Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge. This week's challenge is wreaths. I have been wanting to participate in her challenges the last few weeks, but could never make the time. I also wanted to get at least one Christmas card done on this trip and now I killed two birds with one stone. I have also submitted this card to the Little Red Wagon Blog Challenge; which is Christmas in July.

The image & the sentiment on the inside of the card are stamps from CC Designs. The "JOY" sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie.

The Copic Markers I used are: Hair - YR23, YR24 & YR21; Skin - E00 & E000; Dress & Headband - RV95, RV93 & T2; Wreath - YG23 & YG95 and Berries & Bow - E19 & E97.

I used BoBunny Wine Double Dot Cardstock, Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses Patterned Paper and some more patterned paper from my CTMH stash. Throw on some Stampin' Up Ribbon, American Crafts Glitter Buttons, Stamping Bella Baubles and miscellaneous embroidery floss & there's my Wreath Christmas Card for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge.

This was one of the best...correction....this was the BEST girlfriend get-a-way I have ever had. Fabulous company, fun shopping, productive with Christmas Calendar gifts & cards, great food (including pepperjack cheese on my sub from Subway), many laughs....many, many laughs & even more memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Oh! One more thing.....the Best Hair Days I have ever had!
