Joy to the World

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I am just returning and will be sprinkling comment love all over your blogs this weekend. :o)

I'm on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a snowy Christmas inspiration that will be sent to a mother enduring heartache this holiday season as her little one fights a terminal disease. I always look forward to the new Pion churches each holiday season and the one in Greetings from the North Pole is lovely. The entire collection is a wintry delight. ♥︎
The church is nestled within a gorgeous Wycinanka Bauble (Decor 3). I am addicted to their baubles! ♥︎ For textural interest I have covered it in Crackle Paste and created a hanger of sunflower pearls, natural hemp, and teeny jingly bells.  I love using multiple chippies, so a stunning Vintage Snowflake is tucked in between snowy paper layers.
The sweet ornament hangs beneath a ruffly floral garland, with the most darling polka dot trim I've seen! Rockabilly Ruffle Trim is a recent addition to the store and I am smitten. ♥︎ For festive creations, the little dots are just like precious snowflakes. My card is lined with the beautiful Alicia lace.

The Christmas sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business) and the snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day. :o)
