Joy to the world...


Good morning everyone I hope you had a brilliant weekend...poor Phil had to work until 2pmso we didn't go far, we did head into town and Phil bought more Christmas decorations and wanted to spend a fortune on more but I said for him to wait until I see what I'm making first...I'm going to have to reign him in or we will be coming down with decorations and we still don't have a tree for the kitchen yet lol...but he did buy me a late lunch while we were in town at a local deli/coffee shop and delicious it was too...we then spent about 40 minuets in one of the book shops in Town, I love a good mooch in a book shop don't you...all the shops are looking really festive now...it was dark when we left and the whole place was sparkling and twinkling away and they were putting the towns Christmas lights up ready for switching on which must be soon...ooohhhhhh I'm so loving Christmas this year I bet you would have never guessed lol...right now onto my card for today...this fantastic Christmas rose image is from The Best of Just Inklined 2012 CD rom from Just Inklined...isn't it just so pretty and perfect for decoupaging, which is what I did with it, I printed three and cut them out and layered them up adding a sentiment with word art to finish it off...I coloured the rose with distress inks and teamed it up with this lush lush double sided paper from Echo Park's Merry Christmas range, this is called Christmas Carol...the music side is fabulous isn't it...the little Merry Christmas tag sentiment is cut from the paper info strip, we crafters waste nothing at all do we lol...I finished my card with some pretty white lace, a lush ribbon and a couple of buttons...the fab sketch is from the Emerald Faeries challenge and I'm also entering it for the Craft Us Crazy challenge and Challenges 4 Everybody challenge too...I better have a day in my craft room today and get started on designing and making some decorations like I promised Phil I would, I don't want him having a relapse and raiding another shop for them do I lol...I love how much hes looking forward to it...whatever your up to today have a lovely day and watch out for those tempting little decorations they are everywhere lol

Very festive Mina. You could almost hang this from your tree. Loved the bit of lace peeking out there too. Have fun making your ornaments. Can't wait to see them.
