Hi there to all my lovely bloggers - I am just sharing this "joy card" with you - I have no idea why it is called a Joy card - I prefer to call it a Duet card because it's two cards in one - Yayyyy!
I made this for a dear blogging friend of mine who is going through a rough time at the moment (and I know she loves birdies) - she has already received the card so it's OK to post it on my Blog (I'm sure Gini won't mind)!!!
The cardstock is Bazzill Basics - the stamp is the freebie on February's Craft Stamper Mag., coloured with Sakura Stardust Gel pens, the papers were freebie downloads from Tinker and  Co, and the greeting was a freebie stamp with a recent Do-Crafts Creativity Mag. Sorry Gini -it's not the cost that counts - love you anyway, and get well soon. 
Thanks for visiting - Hugs, Sylvia xxxxxx

What a great card hun and i do believe it was called a "Joy" card because the original had the word Joy on it - I think duet card is much better too
And it's a lovely stamp too

Absolutely beautiful Sylvia - had wondered why it was called a Joy card (Sam's probably right) But yes a duet card suits it better! x

This is just lovely, Sylvia. What a great name for a card, that's a new one on me.
That feebie stamp is gorgeous isn't it, it's been popular in blogland this month and everyone has used it in such different ways.
I'm sure you're friend will be absolutely delighted with her card.

Hi Sylvia, me again.

Just popped back to say we are LS21 so I don't think we are so far away. I've racked my brains to think where LS19 is and now resorted to the A to Z and we're practically neighbours, fancy that!!
