ABC Christmas ,,, J for Joy Fold Challenge


Hi all and hope all is well with you all and you’re all enjoying the milder weather.

This week we have 3 fab GD's joining us for May ,,, Heidi , Carol, and Miria , welcome aboard girls :-)

We are already onto ‘J’ on the ABC Christmas Challenge and this time it is Helen’s turn to choose the theme and she chose Joy Fold AND she has made a fabulous tutorial to make things easy for you :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 spree for one lucky entrant :-)






For my card I used 2 House Mouse stamps :-) For the front cover I used a I Cane Count On You stamp, coloured with copics and stickled with star dust. The papers are Pink Paisley Father Christmas and were a pressie from Scoopy and Joey from Crafty Emma’s Store. I used a Bottle Cap Ink flattened chrome cap and the sentiment is from LOTV stamp set.




For the inside I used a Santa’s Little Helper stamp and a Penny Black We Wish You sentiment.




Thanks for looking :-) Please pop over to the challenge blog to see Helen’s fab tut and the gorgeous creations that the DT have made Smile
