Hi all
I am mad busy renovating my new house ...or The money pit as it has affectionately been nicknamed!! I am having withdrawal symptoms from my lack of craft time ...but I managed to make a card and lantern set using my new stash of crafty goodies I have bought.I think I may use this design for all my Christmas cards this year was very easy to achieve with just a couple of dies....The dies I used were ,Sue wilsons Joy die set. The large ornate oval  frame is from sweet Dixie. The lantern die is from tonic studios.The snowflake border die is from memory box . The embossing folder behind the joy words on the card is from SU,The ribbon and gems are from meiflower crafts.and the stick pins are from creative expressions. The silver mirri is from my stash
