Wishing You Joy - OSAAT #225

Good morning.  Sorry I'm a little late getting my post up this morning. Yesterday was brother-in-law's funeral and we were back at my sister's house until late. My daughter and her family had to fly back to California, but my cousin and brother & his wife are still here. It was a lovely service and they had an honor guard and 21-gun salute at the graveside in honor of his service in the Navy. He was very proud of that.

My card today expresses my feelings - I do wish you all Joy during this holiday season. Our theme for this fortnight is to use lace on your card. Here's mine --
