Christmas in July ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was good and you have fabulous weekend plans. I am snippet busting and I’ve a Christmas card to share with you today and here it is …
Another A6 landscape, love this fold!
That gorgeous sparkly detail
Using snippets to die cut flowers and other embellishments, and for stamping that sentiment onto!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Crafty Calendar Challenge Christmas in July
Crafty Hazel’s Christmas Challenge #236 Include a Sentiment
Tic Tac Toe: 2 die cut flowers – summer colours – lots of layers
Papertake Weekly Challenge Anything Goes
I created another one of the pink and white Christmas cards. I still have quite a lot of pink and blue sparkle card left from playing with the H2O paints. This card I love! I actually achieved shabby and distressed. I’m working on my style and designs, trying very hard to make more shabby style because there are so many designers out there that create gorgeous shabby creations. I’m deliberately trying not to completely CASE another person, trying to find what I love and like which is inks and paints with my much loved stamps lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this weekend ttfn Karen x
