A Joyful Christmas

I have had a marvelous day crafting non stop from 10:30am till now, nearly 12 hours later!  I should be exhausted, but I am feeling invigorated from all the creative juices that are just right at my finger tips!  Lovely when Mr Mojo comes to town on a day like today!  Granted, I have not been at my desk the whole time, but give or take a few minutes to go to the kitchen to make coffee and to see to lunch, I have been in my nice newly (as in yesterday - see post below) cleaned and organised craft room.

Here is what I created in just an hour.  I have an eCraft Cutter on which I cut the scallopped squares.  I first designed them in Corel Draw X4 and them imported them into its program to be able to cut them.  Basically it cuts any line drawing that is on my computer screen.  I had created this file before, so just sent it to cut and then embossed the little things with Tim's music embossing folder by Sizzix and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and lightly covered the tops of the embossed areas.

I then stamped the "A Joyful Christmas" with Jet Black Archival Ink on red card stock.  I used the Walnut stain Distress Ink round its edges and glued the music square onto the top 2/3 of the card.

I poked 2 holes right through the card, one above the other and tied the music note on with a gold and red shiny thread.

All that is left to be done, is glue them onto the white card blanks that I bought from a local stationer called Merry Pack here in Cape Town.

Working like a factory line made it easier and they took exactly an hour to make from start to finish with no breaks for coffee...

Have a wonderful week.
