Sunday 22 July 2012

It's 23 degrees and I'm thinking about Christmas!

Yes - it's probably the nicest day that we've had so far this year, and here I am just about to load up a Christmas card. It's certainly not easy to get all 'Frosty the Snowman' on a day like this but I am happy to exchange my early Christmas cheer for a bit more lovely sunshine!!

So here is my card for today, which I am going to enter in to a few Christmassy challenges.

This lovely snowman is one of the new releases from Stamp Addicts, and, as you can see he is quite a sizeable chap so he makes a real focal point for a card.

I have coloured him with Promarkers and mounted him on to an easel card. The backing paper has been printed from myJoanna Sheen Messy Rabbit Christmas CD rom.....sadly I am not sure if you can still get the Messy Rabbit stuff these days.

As you can see, I managed to fit a little bit of tinsel in there as well, although I can tell you, getting it too stick wasn't easy!

Well that's my card for today, which I would like to enter in to the following challenges:

Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Shelly's Images - Christmas Anything Goes
Delightful Sketches - Christmas in July.

Right - time to get cracking on finishing my second baby blanket now, as my Niece has gone in to labour and I still have another 17 rows to complete. Plus, I haven't started the requisite hand made card yet either.... I am waiting for a name, to see if I can incorporate it in to the card. So much to do and so little time......too bad that I have to go back to work tomorrow!!

Thanks for stopping by on this sunny Sunday!
