Days of Joy 2014 Holiday Card

Peace, Joy & Love

Tis’ the season to spread holiday joy! Each year our families break out the old ornaments and enjoy the many traditions, new and old. Growing up my family always held great significance in the ornaments on the tree. Each one defined something we had accomplished at some point in our life. Memories are shared and laughter heard as we decorate the tree.

Tis’ the inspiration for this holiday card. Using words that make up my tree I made this fun way to represent what Christmas means to me! I hope you enjoy making this holiday card and sharing your Christmas magic with someone special!
