Sweet Stampin' - Christmas in July

Hi honeys, I'm home!  Have you been behaving yourselves?  We've had such a lovely week - gorgeous weather everyday, and Norfolk and the 'holiday house' (as the boys call it) we stayed in was fab too.  We loved it so much, I think we'll be going back to the same place next year.  Ooh, and I was lucky enough to meet the very lovely Lisa while I was away, for some crafty shopping and lots of chatting in the coffee shop! It was so nice to meet you hun :o)

So, getting back to cards... here's my DT card for Sweet Stampin', where our challenge is 'Christmas in July'.  Our sponsor for this week is Di's Digi Downloads who are giving one lucky winner a $10 voucher to spend in their store, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher prize.




The fab snowman is one of the new images from DigiStamp Boutique - he's from the Cute Christmas Frames set.  I coloured him with promarkers and flexmarkers, and the sparkly paper is from the gorgeous First Edition 'Isabelle' pad again - they're not Christmas papers, but I think it works.  Gold ribbon is from my stash.

Thank you for all your lovely comments while we've been away - I'm about to settle down and have a marathon catch up session with all your blogs now... see you soon :o)
