Christmas JOFY style

Last week, I was a very lucky girl and received this fabulous box of all things Christmas from the lovely people at Paperartsy. I got Lynne Perrella's new Christmas stamps and Jo Firth-Young's first collection of stamps so I figured it was about time, I got some of them inky!!!

I decided to have a JOFY morning. There are so many designs that I love in this collection, it was really difficult to choose just one so I used six!!! I was particularly drawn to the minis, thought they would make a quick project because of the size and that is exactly what you want when you are making your Christmas cards.

I made a little concertina, folding card thingy. I just have one teeny, tiny problem.....I didn't leave myself anywhere to write a Christmas message!!! Note to self.....leave one page blank on the next one!!!!

OK, that's me for today, my "to do" list is really quite long. I've got a two day Melt Art Class to prepare for this weekend and Mark and I are off out for dinner this evening, tis our wedding anniversary today....can't believe he's put up with me for 28 thinks he deserves a medal!!

Love the colours on your Christmas card(s). You can always make a tag to put on the ribbon.
Congratulations on your wedding anniversary.
