Christmas Joy

Good Saturday afternoon! Wow those weeks sure do whizz by, November already and I am yet to get organised for Christmas.  I have got myself a little part-time job, which I start next week so I am thinking my Christmas cards and shopping will definately get done last minute this year.  I tend to buy a couple of packs of Christmas cards anyway, mainly for charity.  I always give to The British Heart Foundation and Cancer in memory of my lovely Mum and Dad.
Anyway, Little Claire asked me to design a quick card which could be turned into a take-home pack to make.  This kit is using the gorgeous 'Christmas Joy' stamp and I have teamed it up with some wonderful 'nordic' colours of red gingham paper, red & kraft cardstock.  The ribbon ties in really well and the sentiment is one from another stamp set called 'The Magic of Christmas' and the rosette surrounding it is from 'Georgina's Rosette's' glorious set available on website.
So what do you get in the pack? You get: 'Christmas Joy' ready stamped image (just colour in), the paper and card (red gingham, red bazzill and kraft card) for matting & layering - all pre-cut to size, circular sentiment, rosette, gingham circle - all cut to size, snowflakes, pearls and super, lovely snowflake & heart ribbon mmmmm.....and of course, the blank greetings card & envelope, in this instance it's a blank kraft card.

Not forgetting full colour instructions - so it's everything you need apart from adhesives and, the cost? Just £3.80. or £5.50 for the stamp on it's own.

Ok gardening and housework awaits, its such a lovely sunny day here today, shame to miss some of it.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Greetings from Belgrade, Serbia.
I'm a big fan of all the art and crafts, especially the works of pressed flowers, greeting cards, bookmarker, and I like decoupage.
I'm extremely impressed with your work, but I have neither the material nor the tools to be able to create such beauty as you.
Belgrade have very little materials and tools for the hobby, and what there is,it is very expensive and of poor quality. Everything I do, I work with my fingers, scissors and glue to use plain paper, or wood glue. I do not have to drill or glue paper ruller, not all the tools and materials you see here and the video clips on youtube.
By the way, I am a judge, and work hard, so i don't have inough time for crafts.
I'd like to look at my work and give your feedback.
Sorry for my bad english.
