Meet Joy!

'Joy'

She's a tangible piece of inspiration to 'Dream Big' which just happens to be the theme over at Wednesday Stamper this week.  This piece is quite symbolic - I'm dreaming big at the start of a new year.  Behind this banner I've stashed away a little envelope filled with a list of things that bring joy to my life... a gentle reminder that I'm surrounded with a life filled with many a thing to be joyful about.

There's a touch of influence from Kelly Rae Roberts and Rachel Emilie Jackson  - two great artists to draw inspiration from.


And some gorgeous Stampotique rubber too!  Which brings me to another challenge over at the Stampotique challenge blog the current theme is 'Punches and Die Cuts'.  You need to include at least one die cut shape and one punched shape.  I've used the tag die cut from Tim Holtz Alterations die cuts and the music note punch by Carl.
