Simple Joy Ornament

Happy Wednesday!  I am happy to report I am able to drive again!  It's a joyous day indeed!  It's been two weeks since I have been behind the wheel.  While some may prefer being chauffeured around, I was finding it down right agonizing to rely on someone else.  Today I had the privilege of picking my DD up from an after school activity.  Her jaw completely dropped open when I pulled up to the school.  Of course the first words out of her mouth were, "you're not supposed to be driving!"  I assured her I was cleared  by the doctor so she was a little relieved I think.  Hmmm.  I am hoping tomorrow to venture out further but we will see how I am doing.  It's the little things.  :-)
Today's card is a simple Christmas card I am sending out this year.  I wanted something relatively flat for mailing purposes.  I am used completely non traditional colors and papers.  I am so partial to My Mind's Eye.  Especially the Lost & Found collection which is the panel of decorated paper on this card.  I used a free Berries n Bow image colored with Copics.  Then I stamped  Martha Stewart sentiment and colored in with Copics to accent.  The image is popped up with foam dots.  Easy huh?
