It's Christmas time in August

This week at Winter Wonderland Lynsey has challenged us to make a gift tag. I used one of my favourite Whiff of Joy Christmas stamps in my fave colour. I simply cut out the layers with different sized nesties, coloured her with Promarkers, added some glitter and a few glittery stars. I do hope you will join in this week where you could win 3 digis from Delicious Doodles.

I was asked to be guest designer at Christmas Stampin' all year long where the challenges this week is to use at least 2 designer papers. I was lucky enough to be given a choice of digis from this week's sponsor, In Style and I chose Snowchick, isn't she gorgeous. The papers are almost the last of my BG Eskimo Kisses. I used an MS simple scallop border punch, added some Me and My Big Ideas sparkly snowflakes, a snowflake charm, pearly brads and pearls from the Hobby House. My stack of Christmas cards is growing nicely now so no rush in November for me this year.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Basic Grey Pearls
Kaboodle Doodles Add a little metal
Paper Sundaes Metal
