Holly Hobbie Christmas Joy

I had to buy cardmaking and papercraft this month, well to be honest I always buy it, but this month the free gifts where so lovely, a set of Holly Hobbie Christmas stamps and a lovely paper pad.
The stamp produced a perfect image on first inking. I coloured my image with promarkers and gave evrything the vintage look with distress inks.
The paper is Darling Dear by my mind's eye,the lace and button sentiment from Hobby Craft and the roses and leaves wild orchid. Gold strands from the ribbon box and gold transparent corners from pinflair complete the card.

wild orchid : anything goes

Well it's a lovely Autumn day here, blue sky and the sun is shinning,all my washed bedding is blowing on the line, this is a relief from all the rain.
Hope you have a lovely sunny weekend. janex

A pity we cant get it over here .. not seen them, but do love the way that you have done the medley of colours on her apron as it hat is how it was my vase, quite tall one was in blue but left behind in Melbourne, by mistake, you know how it is!!
