♫Joy To The World♫

It is some time since I last posted a card, but as I explained a few posts
ago, we have overseas visitors, and we have been quite busy in one way
or another.

Welcome to my newest followers, Julie and Donna. I hope you  
enjoy your visits to my blog.

At Winter Wonderland, many of our Design Team are on holidays, so
our challenge will last 4 weeks instead of our usual 1 week. Our theme
for that period should provide you with lots of creative ideas because it is

Because of the lengthy break we have 4 wonderful sponsors, and they 

This DT card is very similar to my last one, in that I have recycled a
lovely card sent to us last year. Other similarities are that it was a 
large card which I cropped heavily, and I forgot to photograph
the original card before cutting it up.

To comply with our theme of  'Christmas Carol or Song', I could have 
chosen 'Away In A Manger' for this image, but I decided to go with 
'Joy To The World', (the Lord is come) because I had that greeting
on another recyclable card, and the background colour 
matched the image perfectly.

A closer look at the beautiful, serene image. In the window in the 
scene, there was a very tiny star, over which I have attached a 
die-cut star, covered with Star Dust Stickles.

Until next time, thank you for visiting,
