No sooner than the sun comes out

than it's time for Christmas!!

Hi blogworld

Well as you will know, if you've been putting up with my waffle for any length of time, I'm not a Christmas should be started early sort of gal.  Christmas, as far as I'm concerned, starts 1st December and not a minute before.

However, I was coerced by my bosses at The Cutie Pies to go get my Christmas boxes, sneeze through the dust and make a Christmas card as this time the challenge over at the Cuties is 'Christmas in July'.

Our sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop and there is a fab prize on offer!

So without further ado, here is the card I made:

Front shot:

Detail of image and trying to show the glitter on hat:

I used:

Stampavie - Gillian Roberts: Kitten
coloured with my Promarkers

Nestie oval

Daisy Bucket - Wrapped wishes

Anything else?
Bit of a feather
very, very, very old snowflake button (which I don't think works anyway)
ditto to the Craftwork sentiment
Ribbon from my box
Glamour Dust

So come on then, join in, dig out those Christmas themed products and lets pretend it's snowing!!!

See you at The Cutie Pies,

PS - Do you think piccies of the kittens in Santa hats would work as well????

A challenge, or two:

Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge blog: Christmas in July

Lollipop Crafts: Challenge #84 - Christmas in July

Addicted to Stamps: Challenge #35 - Christmas in July

I was going to say that a kitty in a Santa hat was perfect given your situation, but real-life kitties in little Santa hats would also be very sweet. Not sure where you'd put the glitter tho'... Hugs, Tracey xx

Sarah, this design won my heart at the feather. Then I saw the close-up of the kitten with the glittery brim on its hat and I was in love. Beautiful design. TFS.
Blessing hugs,
