All For Joy!

Good Friday morning! Are most of you off of work today? I wish I were off too! I know a few of you who are and I'm so jealous. LOL! I would rather be stamping today, and since I'll be working, be sure to stamp for me!! =) Well, yesterday I was talking to Teri and asked her how to get in touch with Joy. Joy and I know of each other through blogging and Teri but have never had the chance to meet in person. Isn't that weird, we live on the same island and just miss the chance to meet each other (especially when there's a class at Teri's). Anyway, she and I connected via phone and boy is she fun to chat with!! I was supposed to send a card to her last month for a One Card swap that Teri runs but had no time to get that done. Now that she has it and the goodies I sent, I can post it!! =)
I LOVE my gorjuss girls and wanted to share some with Joy but I just could not give it to her by stamping them out. I had an idea in mind of how to send it to her and besides, I feel funny without putting it into some kind of "container". It feels unfinished to me. So, I have made this folder using cardstock and decorated it with some DSP. I know many of you are interested in me making tutorials on how I create things. So, I will be posting a tutorial on how to create this folder. (Hopefully by Saturday)
She is one of my favorite gorjuss girls to color and make things with. For the folder, I decorated the outside with printed paper and planned to sew on it with my machine but got lazy and did faux stitching instead. The letters on the folder were created using my sizzix sizzlit alphabets called fruit smoothie. It's a set from a long time ago.
Here is the inside of the folder that stores all the images I stamped for her. It actually held a good amount on both sides. Be sure to stop by this weekend for the tutorial on this folder. =)
Well, here is the card that I was supposed to mail to Joy in the month of March for the One Card Swap that Teri holds each month. I decided to use an image that was spring-like since Easter is just around the corner and I really like Penny Black stamps (one of my most favorite companies). Now, I have to get started on my One Card Swap to my partner for April. =)
