Help I'm trapped in a Christmas card factory

rescue me someone!!

Hello blogworld,

I'm now having the whip cracked over me by the wonderful ladies who run the shop over at Sweet Stampin  to make another Christmas card as this week's theme is Christmas in July.

I think this must be the first time I've ever made two Christmas cards this early in the year - honestly as far as I know Christmas starts1st December no earlier.  I'm sticking to that and not making another Christmas card now until the 1st of December.

So all moaning aside we've got two fab sponsors:

For the monthly prize it's the wonderfulness that is:

For the weekly prize it's the total cuteness of:

Want to see what I came up with?  This is it:

I used:

Digital stamp:
Di's Digi Downloads - Shopping Spree
coloured with my Promarkers

Nestie Label

crate paper - Peppermint collection

Anything else:
Ribbons and fabric stars
Glamour Dust

So there you go my last Christmas card for a few months!  Looking forward though to seeing all the snowy, Christmassy, beautiful creations that you make.


A challenge, or two:

Gorgeous card Sarah :o) Love that cute image and your fab colouring. I've made quite a few Christmas cards this month - all because I 'had' to, but at least I've got a few done. I suppose I'll appreciate that in December! Hugs, Lisa x
