I got the idea for this snowman with the joy banner from demonstrator Mary Brown. You can see her card here. The snowman is from the Snow Day stamp set and the banner is from A Banner Christmas stamp set. The word JOY is lined up straight on the stamp so I just cut the letters out. A little bow using bakers twine and it looks like the snowman is holding the banner. Pretty cute.
I have had my Christmas tree up since Thanksgiving afternoon and the house decorated but had not had time to put lights outside. So today was the day to do that. I have 5 strings that only half of the lights work. And my lighted wreath has one section that the lights quit too. I put four sets of white lighted showflakes that sit on stakes in the ground this afternoon too. They twinkle and all of them worked when I put them out. I just went outside to see how it all looked since it has gotten dark and two of the sets are not working anymore. I think the Grinch has paid me a visit.
I'm waiting for my oldest son, Jeff, to arrive from Kentucky. He is driving down for just a few days. It's always good to see him even if it is a short visit.
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Sunday.
