With Love at Christmas - Joanna Sheen


 
Good Morning :)  I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I spent yesterday putting the finishing touches to my christmas decorations, and unwrangling a set of lights that had been bugging me! lol.
 
Today sees the start of our new challenge over at Joanna Sheen, and this time you have a whole month to join in and play along - just to make it easy! ;)  Our theme is 'With Love at Christmas', and as always the lucky winner will win a £15 voucher to spend online - brilliant prize!
 
I was sent this gorgeous set of Giordano decoupage sheets called Father Christmas and Friends, and it was packed full of lovely warm and very cute images.  I dont do a lot of decoupage as the fiddly stuff puts me off, but these are really big and so easy to work with, I ended up making 2 cards in the same time I would usually spend on one!  Excellent for making some last minute christmas cards ;)
 
 

I used 6 x 6 Kraft card blanks for my base and just layered Memory Box papers onto gold mirri card, and added a few die cuts to match.  The beautiful gold ribbon was sent to me as a birthday present and its so luxurious I didnt want to part with it! :)

I hope you find time to play along, and dont forget we have weekly candy give-aways and daily talent spots too.

Have a smashing sunday, and thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

I can just imagine your lads sitting watching you put together that first card! Love the way you've incorporated your own touch with these decoupage images. The gold is a lovely addition.
Well done with the unwrangling......we've been doing the same but with holly roots!
