Season of Joy

No, I am not posting a Christmas Card today, however the card I am going to show you does use the Season of Joy stamp set.  I love the challenge of trying to use stamp sets in different ways, doing something that’s not so obvious.  So here is what I have come up with today.

As well as Season of Joy, I have used the new Heard from the Heart greeting set, which is fast becoming another favourite, I love the long, flowing lines of the these greetings.
Of course, this card could be a Christmas card, just change the colours and use a christmas greeting.
I have used Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery cardstock and inks, with some Certainly Celery ribbon, and some flat back pearls from the pretties kit to add some flair.  The flowers have been stamped and then cut out to give them a dimensional look, and for a finishing touch, my all time favourite, some paper piercing in the corners.
I really feel that I am starting to get better now, as I am wanting to do more and more crafting and creating every day, not just stamping, but I have also found that I am having time to get back into some of the other crafts that I enjoy, such as knitting, sewing and needlecraft.  So I thought I would share one other thing with you today.  I have had a lot of comments from family and friends about this rug, which I made quite a few years ago now, but is Jamie’s favourite snuggle rug when he is unwell.  I did crochet the entire rug out of left over balls and bits and pieces of wool which my Mum and I had both collected over years of knitting, and crocheting.  The photo is not the best, as it is a bit hard to take a photo of something that size, when it is laid out flat.

This is just another of one of many things that I look forward to getting back into.  So you may well be seeing lots more different crafty stuff on here in the future :)

In the meantime, I think I will go and make a card!  And I hope you get some time today to do some crafting.  Happy stamping!
Chris
