Wishing you all the JOYS of the season

It has been more than a week since Vincent left for Germany, he is now in London spending time with our two older girls who are in university there.    I am home alone with Jer who is taking her A levels, and her first paper is on Tuesday.   She has been studying very hard and unfortunately has also caught the flu bug.  I have been trying to load her with home brewed herbal tea, double boiled chicken soup, fish soup, and lots of vegetables and fruits.

It will be another week before Vincent heads home, and I am trying to make a paper bags album as inspired by my mentor Angie, but I decided to take a break and make a card for the following challenges :

1.   Sweet Stamping Challenge - a sketch
2.   Whiff of Joy Challenge 91 - a Christmas card

Materials used :

1.  WOJ image :  Melinda blowing kisses coloured with caran d'ache color pencils and copic markers
2.  Pattern paper : basicgrey jovial, cardstock : DCWV, border stickers : basicgrey jovial
3.  Spellbinder nesti, inked with viva decor paper soft color
4.  Wishing you all the JOYS of the season - clear stamp (I couldn't remember the make of this set of stamps and I did not keep record as this was one of my very first few set of stamps)
5.  EK success musical symphony edge punch  
6.  Poinsettias : wild orchid crafts

  2. Hi Adeline,
    this card is so beautiful, I love it.

  3. Hi Adeline, your Christmas card is gorgeous. The metal music note border is so unique. Adorable image and so perfect for a Christmas card.

  4. We're still waiting for thanksgiving to be over on the 25th, and then it's time to countdown to Christmas! The hybrid european/british/american culture we have here is just amazing.

    I'm not in London yet - got selected to participate in a luncheon with Howard Dean. Didn't get to speak much with the man himself, but I sat next to his niece, and might have an internship with Democracy for America lined up...fingers crossed. Exciting times. But in the meantime my train's in 7 hours, and I've not packed! Argh!

  5. Sooo lovely! I love your style!

  6. It's a lovely way to use this beautiful stamp on a Christmas card!!!! Really cute!
    Thanks for joining us at WOJ challenge.
    Hugs, Giò
