Joy


Well it's way too hot to be outside 36C but I'm not complaining other areas in the state are well into the 40sC and then there is reported snow on the high peaks in Tasmania - stupid weather, anyway I'm happy to be at my desk in the cool.  This card is for this months Muse: Christmas Visions 77 - casing Chriss's card below and as I've included Holly in my design I'm posting to Happy Little Stampers February Christmas challenge with the optional twist of Holly.  The die cut metallic 'Joy' on Chriss card took my eye and the all over floral pattern for the background.  I have been delving in my DP "piles" and decided to use this gorgeous all over holly paper for my background. Then my set of alphabet dies are way to small to show up nicely on the paper - so I just hand cut them from metallic green card  (lucky there's only three letters) and then cut a few holly leaves and finished them off with some pearl "berries".  Thanks for taking a peek

  9. What a wonderful backdrop for your bold sentimen. I always seem to forget I have a hoard of PP as well. Hope things have cooled down a bit over there, although the high temperatures are a perfect excuse to stay inside and create Christmas cards to keep cool lol. Over here in Crete, it seems that Spring has finally arrived after a cold (to Cretan standards, that is, with long stretches of day temperatures of around or just below 10°C. My husband always tells me he starts thawing at temps above 25, which is when I am almost switching on the A/C in my office space.
