Ginger Joy


I hope your Christmas plans are coming together nicely - it's H's nativity tomorrow and his school fete on Friday and i'm looking after the Mulled Wine stall for 2 and a half hours, shame i can't have more than 1 glass though, as i will be driving :-(

Today's image is a sweetie i fell in love with and have not got round to using it - shame on me, and i distressed him all over with Tim Holtz - 'Tea Dye and Brushed Corduary' and only used my Twinkling H20's for the holly, so i've teamed it up with some Basic Grey papers - 'Nordic Holiday', the sentiment is PB - 'Candy Cane Wishes / Transparent Set', the ribbon is some, i simply had to have the last time i visited 'The Craft Barn'.
