It's a beautiful sunny morning here in Hampshire - I hope the weather is good with you!
Our new challenge is starting over at Sweet Stampin
CHRISTMAS IN JULY
Now I think there are going to be two ways of looking at this:
If you are very organised, you can look at it as a way to add another wonderful Crimbo card to your growing collection.....
On the other hand, if like me you're not a fan of Christmas cards and usually leave it to the last minute, you could have a rummage around, try to find some Christmas stash and make a card. That way you can feel smug in the knowledge that you've made at least one card for the big event - ready to lose it again by December!!
Anyhow, here's my card ...
I blew the dust off this ever faithful snowman from LOTV, the papers are from The Snowman collection by Crafter's Companion and the ribbon and pom pom trim are from either Tesco or Asda wrapping department!! I got a bit carried away and heat embossed the sentiment - a good idea on a hot day!! The paper that looks dark grey in the photo is actually a dark silver texture - it does look better IRL honest!
I even found some glitter for the snow!!
Hope you can join us at Sweet Stampin, check out the main blog for some lovely inspiration from the rest of team Fi.
