It's a justjohanna Holiday Celebration! - Take Two!

Sorry about the disappearing justjohanna post! I wanted to have my SALT post at the top of my page for a day so I hide my tangled fish card for a few days! :-) The good news is that now Mr. Fishy is back (below) as well as a new justjohanna card, using another one of her new holiday images. And this one is just as fabulous as the fish! A rockin' bird! The new set of images include a bunch of these rockin' birds with sayings like, "have a rockin' Christmas", "you rock", and "rock and roll." Too funny!

Simple card layout using SU!'s Bravo Burgundy as a base. The patterned paper is one I picked up from Wholly Scrap...don't recall the manufacturer but I've seen this paper making the rounds on blogs. It's a fun paper with a bit of shimmer built into some of the circles.

The edge of my card has two rows of piercing and my bad rockin' bird was stamped on Whisper White, colored with my Copics, and mounted to a piece of Old Olive. The "you rock" sentiment fit perfectly behind a piece of chipboard that was covered with ink. A small piece of ribbon was added to the chipboard for an accent.

Head over to justjohanna's web site to check out the entire catalog of holiday images...they are very, very fun!

She's at it again...Johanna that is, creating fun new images for the holidays!! I'll have a few more justjohanna holiday cards to share over the next few days...this is the first!

This is by far my favorite image from the collection...this poor fish wrapped up in Christmas tree lights with a star stuck on his nose! The look on his face is just hysterical! That Johanna has the best sense of humor! :-) And isn't the "tah dah" just the perfect sentiment to go with the fish? Now to pair up the fish with one of the Priscilla (cat) images...hum...now, that could be fun!

My apologizes for the not so great photo. I was in a hurry to get these in the mail and didn't have much time for staging...so...it's a little difficult to see the doodled scallop border around the larger oval (both ovals cut with my new Nestibilities die cuts - oh my, how fabulous!) but it was a fun addition since the oval was looking a bit plain. I'm not sure of the name of the patterned paper but it was part of a bunch of fun holiday papers I picked up from Wholly Scrap awhile ago. I like it because it's not a traditional holiday paper, has a bit of a twist! Other plain cardstock is SU! Always Artichoke and Purely Pomegranate.

Head on over to the justjohanna web site to check out all of the rockin' new images...More fun to follow over the next few days!

Happy creating!

Oh my goodness! Those images are darling, as are the cards you made to go with them! I'm going to have to get my hands on that fish, I think!
