Feeling Festive??


It's the middle of summer and yer, as always, us crafters are already turning our thoughts to Christmas. The stamp companies are releasing their Christmas offerings to tempt us.......and boy, is it hard to resist!

Lucky for me, I was given these lovely stamps by the Stamp Addicts team, to create some cards for their last show, and I have to admit, I really love this Mr and Mrs Santa who form part of a larger set.

As you can see, these images are quite modern and quirky, but I have stuck with the traditional Christmas colour scheme and incorporated some lovely backing papers, incorporating holly and mistletoe.

And for me, Christmas is not over yet as I have some more Christmas stamps to work with ready fro the next Stamp Addicts show is C&C, which I believe is scheduled for 9th August, They're completely different to this set........so watch this space!

In the meantime I'm going to enter this card in to the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Christmas in July.

Well that's me done for today. As I sit here typing it's 11:10pm in the UK.......50 more minutes until I am another year older, as it's my birthday tomorrow. I'm going to bed in a minute, as I can cope with being a year older as long as I don't sprout any new wrinkles! Off to get my beauty sleep.......byeeeeee!!!!
