It just so happens my nephews fiance's name is Joy so this sentiment could be used either way :)

Using some more forgotten treasures, I had been hoarding these last two Making memories leather flowers and decided it was time to let them go.  I made the banner by cutting one out by hand and then using the Memory box - country stitches die to make the stitched marks on it.

Making Memories -- Leather flowers
Spellbinders -- Ironworks Accents dies
Memory Box -- Country stitches die
Stamps of life -- Minis 4 circles sentiment stamp
Paper from cardmaking and papercraft magazine

Esther was sweet to leave some links to ideas on what to do with our left over letters in my last post, here they are :
Here's some fun ideas for using leftover letters (stickers and chipboard):

Thank you so much for sharing with us :)

Well now they are saying a dusting to an inch of snow so it won't be too bad with the snow and the temperature is suppose to get up to 42 on Sunday so I am thinking it may just all melt.

Wishing you all a fun and creative weekend ahead.
Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Sometimes it is hard to give up those little treasures that we put aside but we always find just the right person to give them to! Love the JOY!

Oh, that's so cute, Connie! Cute and pretty all wrapped up together. Those leather flowers are cool, and the paper is beautiful. I'm going to check out those tips about the letters, even though I think I gave mine away. I bet you're going to come up with something. You're so good about using your stuff. We're having sun today so I'm heading outside. Back to rain tomorrow, so must take advantage of it. Have a good day!
