By now, my friends and family are used to my random bouts of happy dances. They happen often because my sole mission in life is to have laugh lines by the time I'm forty. Happy dances can be brought on by a number of things: A fresh jar of nutella, the first snowfall, a new niece or nephew being added to the family... So when I was whooping and busting out my best impression of Michael Jackson's dance moves, my boyfriend looked at me nonchalantly and waited until I was done with my Thriller shakes before asking why I was happy this time.



I made a design team!! Whoooooo!! I applied for Eclectic Ellapu's design team and just received notice from the lovely Elaine that I made it! They've got some great challenges and you should totally check them out! You will see my work over there starting in December.

But now: A card!


I am feeling pretty joyful, and so I made a happy Christmas moose! Isn't he cute all decked out in lights? This set is a very old Stampin' Up set, and the joyful around the border comes from STAMPlorations "Joyful" set. I'm loving the bold colors of that chevron and, of course, the punny sentiment.

I'm sending this over to the following challenges:
Crafting When We Can's - Use Your Markers
Creative Card Crew's - Christmas Joy
Naughty or Nice's - Festive Furballs
STAMPlorations - Stamps and Layers 

Pssst.... Have you seen that I am having my first ever giveaway? Check it out HERE!!

Thank you for stopping by! Follow my blog and leave me a comment and I'll be sure to return the favor.

Off to do some more happy dancing now....

    1. Thanks Cat! I actually did start out using the Mojo Monday sketch, but I couldn't quite incorporate that little circle, so I didn't enter it.
