Good afternoon everyone and firstly welcome to my new followers. I hope you will visit often. I really appreciate everyone's kind comments. I must say it felt more like Christmas weather this morning than Summer. The sun has finally decided to make an appearance but this morning was cloudy and overcast. We did a car boot sale and when we got there it decided to drizzle a little which was very disheartening. We only do one or two a year trying to choose days when the weather is supposed to be fine. Thankfully it soon stopped but it was only 13 degrees. I had a fleecy hoodie and a scarf on and it is July so making Christmas cards seems very appropriate.
This is my DT card for this week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss where the challenge is Christmas in July. We are sponsored by Meljens and the DT were given some images to play with. Mine is called Cozy Little Chickadees. I used bits and pieces from some of last year's Christmas papers, mainly Forever Friends. I followed the fab sketch at Sketch n Stash and added some flowers, card candi and pine branches cut with a Marianne die.
I would also like to enter this into the Christmas in July challenges at Pollycraft, Sweet Stampin', Crafty Creations, Crafty Catz and Fussy and Fancy.
Now as you can see there are a number of Christmas in July challenges this week and not forgetting the regular Christmas challenges either. Now here's a tip, hop over to Squiggle Stamps where you will find 20% off Christmas images and 2 freebies, one of which is Lil Angel.
