Monday Blues....a Card and Look over there! :)

Ugh, I hate Mondays, back to work, back to school, waking up early, did I mention Back to work??? ugh..

Okay enough pouting, I did some shopping this weekend, but unfortunately I can't show you what I got because it's all Christmas presents and well.... some of the receipients read the blog so I'll have to show you later. :) I do have a card for you though. :) It went with 2 Sketches 4 You but I didn't upload it in time for their bonus sketch for last week so oh well. :) I just used Maroon cardstock from a HL paperpack... the backdrop paper (red and white) is from the discount section, I just paper punched the end with the Fiskars punch. I created 1.5 inch squares of all different papers, roughed up the edges with my Xacto...
I cut a little triangle tree and inked the edges with some brown... and Ta-Da... This was a pretty simple one.. I got the "Joy" from seom scraps and it matched well I thought :)
I know it's not the typical Christmas colors but I thought it came out good... :) let me know what you think! :)
In other news, there are some blog candies going on right now.... so go check them out..

I think your card turned out great! I love threading water punches edges, and I love the four patterned paper squares. The Christmas tree is very cute, and JOY is the perfect sentiment! Great job!
