Christmas Joy


How are you doing with those Christmas cards?  I actually have a few of them made thanks to Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and time is starting to get short.  I so enjoy being on that team and being able to do Christmas cards without the pressure of the holidays.  Except... this month we were gone on holidays and I never gave it a thought that I had a card due at the beginning of the month.  I cannot believe I forgot because I had the card in my head so now my beginning of the month card is a mid month reminder for our Male Christmas Card theme.  This month's prize for first place is a £10 voucher to My Mum's Craft Shop   ££1£
Make sure you drop by Christmas at Sweet Stampin' to check out the gorgeousness the team have put together.
I also want to give a shout out to my good friend Tracy made me up this fab new watermark and I love the scripty font and that pretty butterfly so thanks again Tracy!
Supplies:
Stamps: Purple Onion's Joy stamp designed by Carolyn Draws and the sentiment is one from Paper Smooches Joyful Greetings set
Paper: Farmhouse Paper Company's Norland Cardigan.  This paper company is new to me but I love it.  Great quality and design so I bought a couple packages... you all know how we hate to run out of anything!
Misc:   and of course, no card is complete without some Frantage
