Christmas in July!

Hello, I'm back today with our next challenge over at Make My Monday and this week Laura has challenged us to make a christmas card, hence the 'CHRISTMAS IN JULY' title!

Well, I almost went into a flat spin - never before have I opened my christmas craft box in July! But as they say, there's a first time for everything and boldly overcoming my fear I opened the box and made the following for your inspiration ...

Although I am a traditional girl at heart, I do love a contemporary christmas - hence the purple! I adore this little teddy bear image from LOTV - he has to be one of my favourite christmas stamps, so out of the box he came and I coloured him with my Promarkers and added a little glitter to his hat. You can't do christmas without a bit of sparkle!

The paper is from my stash and I added a white snowflake border which is embellished with little adhesive gems.  I thought the card looked somewhat plain, so I added some fancy corners in a dark purple (which are actually cut from a Spellbinders Fleur de Lys square cut into four pieces). Hope you like it!

Hugz, Jan xx
