GDP058 Simple Joys

Hi everyone!  Wednesday--the middle of the week!  It's a quick slide to the weekend, yippee!  I got in some late, late stamping time and used the really nice sketch from the Global Design Project for my card today:

I told myself I was NOT going to get any more Christmas DSP but that Presents & Pinecones paper just sort of jumped into my cart last time I placed an order, LOL!  I think it is so cute with this layout and a sentiment from Christmas Pines:

The sentiment was stamped right on to the DSP in Cool Cucumber ink and I diecut some bells (Impression Obsession DIE220-Q) from the same DSP and some Delightful Dijon cardstock.  I added a little shading and topped them off with some red glitter baker's twine from the Holiday catalog!  Sweet!

And here's the inside; I just love that SU gives us little extra elements like the arrow that I stamped beneath the words...just a nice extra touch!  

Cassidy rediscovered some of that weird silicone sand she got a while has a strange feeling to it but it IS fun to play with.  She took some time during the nice weather to make a pie:

Looks pretty yummy to me!  Maybe I'll teach her to make pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving!

Thanks for popping in and have a blessed day!


  1. My best memories of Christmas, as the youngest child of nine, are the simplest, and most joy-filled, LeAnne. What a perfect sentiment ... and that paper is very vintage and brings me back there, truly. I'm very pleased with that pie, Cassidy ... you are my favorite kind of kid - always using your imagination!!

  2. Super cute card, LeAnne! Love those bells that you diecut and the pretty dsp! I did not order any of this paper and i'm trying hard to resist! LOL I have SO much Christmas paper! TFS and enjoy this nice weather! :)

  3. Love these papers with your sweet bells LeAnne!

  4. The DSP is the perfect backdrop for that beautiful sentiment and sweet bells, LeAnne. A very "Christmasy" card. I bought some of that sand for somebody last Christmas and it does feel weird but they sure like to play with it!

  5. A Beautiful and festive design!! The papers are stunning! :)

  6. I do the same thing with telling myself I don't need more paper. They always come out with such CUTE stuff that makes it hard to resist LOL!! Your Christmas card is darling. Cassidy's pretend pie looks terrific. I'll bet she would enjoy helping you out for Thanksgiving!!

  7. I do love that background paper! Sweet holiday card1
