Christmas List

Well wasn't Wednesday a scorcher here in the UK and I persuaded hubby we should invest in a Dyson fan which arrived yesterday. It was bought direct from Dyson with free next day delivery and at a discounted price of a penny short of GASP £270 (instead of £319.99) - so we'll just have to see how it compares to the £30 standard fan we bought on Tuesday.

I'm popping along today with a christmas card made with a Joanna Sheen Giordano decoupage sheet. I love this image and decided it needed no embellishing so just placed it on a white linen card base with a recycled sentiment.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge 'two words'
Paper Creator's Crafts challenge 'christmas in July'
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'christmas in July'
Crafting Musketeers challenge 'anything goes'
Sisters of Craft challenge 'anything goes'

I'm off outside now to enjoy a bit more of the sunshine and that way I won't be able to see all the housework that needs doing! Hope you all have a great weekend whatever you have planned and thanks for taking the time to pop by.

You were absolutely correct - this stunning image needed nothing besides the simple matting you've done...which shows off the image to perfection. Love that you were able to recycle a sentiment, and it looks just great on this pretty card. Guess the hot weather must be much of a change for you folks...hope the fans will help. Where I live, the fan would only stir more hot air! Good luck, and hope the heat wave will soon just fade into nice relaxing warmth for ya'll to enjoy. Hugs, Happy wkend, and TFS

This is a beautiful Christmas card Andrea, such a wonderful decoupage image, you were right to keep your design simple,
I was reading somewhere that the Dyson fans are really economical to run, you will have to let us know how good it is.

Beautiful Christmas card; love this traditional Santa image. Thanks for joining LLC for our Christmas in July challenge. The Dyson fan sounds interesting...might have to check it out, though now it has of course cooled down considerably. Enjoy Summer!
