JOY!!!!!

Hello dear friends: I hope your weekend was fabulous and not to cold, up here in NW Indiana, Winter is in full swing.
I have a card for you that I will link up to the Addicted to CAS "JOY" challenge and the Addicted to Stamps "HOLIDAY" challenge, here is my card.
I like it when I can combine stamps from different companies to create my cards, in this case, I used Tiny Jumper Monica Jumping for Joy from House Mouse Designs and a couple of stamps from Purple Onion Designs, Christmas Tree and Little Packages .
I stamped all the images onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored them with the aqua painter and SU markers in this colors: Garden Green, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, More Mustard, Perfect Plum, Rose Red, Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Sky and Pretty in Pink, I added a bit of gold and silver gel pen to some of the ornaments and the ribbons.
I snipped the little packages to give a bit of dimension to this little scene.
I was going to stamp a sentiment with the word JOY but I really didn't leave any space for it, I didn't want to clutter the images, besides, I think Monica's expression on her tiny face says it all, she is really jumping for JOY at the sight of those presents under the Christmas Tree.
This are the banners that inspired this card.

HOLIDAY
I want to thank you for stopping by today and for leaving me your comments, they truly give me tons of JOY!!!!!
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
