Joy to the World

Hello! So we are well and truly into the festive season and hopefully you aren't getting too busy or too run off you feet! At Try Stampin' On Tuesday Jenn has a created a simple sketch for you to use and keep those creative juices flowing even in these busy times.



I was in need of two more Christmas cards for some neighbors and this was exactly the sketch I needed! Quick and simple, yet so effective. Now I'm not one to use dsp - I buy it loving the patterns or colours, but when it comes to using it I either freak out because using a pattern other than polka dots is too scary or I dont want to cut into it because it's too pretty - I see a few of you nodding your heads knowing where I'm coming from ;) So I decided it was time and used this gorgeous paper for my creation. The dsp is retired jolly holiday and my colours are old olive, cherry cobbler and very vanilla. The sentiment is from my favourite set for Christmas sentiments "jolly jingles".


Make sure you pop past the Try Stampin' On Tuesday to see all the stunning creations from the design team.

Thanks for looking
