I didn't expect this theme on Louise's blog this afternoon as I was preparing myself to use butterflies and lovely light colors for the Spring! It is so soft and warm here. But that is often the case in the South of France and it can turn cold again.
I used part of a stamp from Sugar Lump Studios, of children on a sledge in the snow, using tea-dye distress ink. I decorated the outside of the tag with different winter foliage stamps in peeled paint and shabby shutters distress ink and used a sentiment that Louise sent me a while ago. It is one of my favorite words ' JOY' - and I always interpret it as the JOY of the Lord, because that is a precious thing to have. I have e-mail contact with a friend in Holland and we have decided to send each other joy-reports - it is a great reminder of everything we can be thankful for! So much can happen in just a week!
