Stamp Something - Christmas in July!

Our challenge for this week at Stamp Something is 'Christmas in July'... now I did say I was going to be more organised this year and get my Christmas cards started early, but this is only my second one... oh well, never mind!  We're sponsored by DRS Designs who are providing our lucky winner with a $15 gift voucher to spend in their fab online store.



I've used a fab new image from the Snow Peeps set from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers, and had a go at making clouds using memento 'sky blue' ink and a handcut mask.  I'm really not happy with this card, I just couldn't get into a Christmas mood... I had a much better idea when I'd nearly finished this, but didn't have time to make another one!  The paper is DCWV, black cardstock is coredinations.  The sentiment is Craftwork Cards, punched snowflakes with a button and pearls from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the 'Christmas in July' challenge at Creative Friday.

We've had a lovely day today :o)  We swapped Dex's nursery days around so that he'd be there today, and went to see the new Harry Potter film - it was fab!  We'd planned on doing something yesterday for Pav's birthday, but nursery are fully booked on Thursdays... then we realised that Harry Potter was released today, so it worked out perfectly.  And when we got back there was a package for me - I won a Simon Says Stamp voucher at Papertake Weekly, and my order (all stamps lol) has arrived... can't wait to play with them!
