Merry Monday #255 {Joy} ~ Wondrous Wreath

Well, things were going along just lovely this morning as I was making my Christmas card for the challenge at: 
Until I realized that I've misplaced or lost my bow die to my Wondrous Wreath Stampin up set.  UGH!!!! Been on the floor searching for it, then realized how much dog hair has accumulated and that sent me over the top.  Let's just say it's days like this when I realize I can't get up from the floor anymore easily and now everything is in a mess.  and still no die.  I hope it shows up.  I suppose I'll have to wait for hubby to help me out.  Bless his heart.  Well folks back to the card and enough about my grumbles.  I love how the gold foil paper really makes the background and center Joy sentiment pop.  Do I get bonus points for using the word JOY twice?  Just kidding.  

I also included in my post today the retiform card I made yesterday.  It's a whole new way of thinking.  Many people liked my first retiform card on Stamp Cafe so I thought I'd try a Christmas one too.  I'm not very good at it yet, but I suppose I'll keep practicing.   
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hope you will take a tour of my blog and see my other cards, projects and pictures.
I'd love to have you be included in my blog family.  All you have to do is follow me.  
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
