Joy to the World!!!

Hellooooo blogland!  It's the second post this week!  Yeah!  So I made cards tonight... among some other great crafty things!  Woo hoo!  First, I made some fab stuff for the blog hops I'm in over the weekend AND I made another Christmas card for some challenges that I really wanted to play along with!  =)  Here's the card that I wanted to share with you today:

All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post!  How awesome is that musical background from Hero Arts?  And I just LOVE that May Arts silk ribbon too -- what an amazing win that was!  =)  When I was growing up, "Joy to the World" was always one of my favorite Christmas Carols!  My mom said I used to sing "sleep in heavenly peas"  instead of "sleep in heavenly peace!" I was such a kooky kid!  =)

I was inspired by three different challenges when making this card:
1.  Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Photo Inspiration ( was really drawn to the poinsettias and the sheet music!) 
2.  Tuesday Throwdown #77 - Celebrate the Season

3.  Wee Memories #78 - Free For All

In other news, I'm hard at work trying to put together the blank pages of my December Daily, and taking notes/pictures each day to put in it!  Has anyone here DONE a December Daily before?  Any advice on doing it?  I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by the entire thing right now and could definitely use some advice!  =)  
Ok bloggers!  It's WAY past my bedtime!  See you all on Friday at 12:01AM for the Lawnscaping Blog Hop!  Yay!
