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! 

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

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

Oh my Karen, this is such a beautiful Christmas card! I love pink used at Christmas, I'm a pink gal. lol But I just think it is a pretty color at Christmas. I love the sparkle and shine you gave this card too. So pretty! Having the granddaughters over to spend the night this weekend, I love it. But I know I will be exhausted by the time they leave. lol Hugs, Brenda

Gorgeous card Karen! You know how I love pink :-) And the card shape is lovely, must try to make more of those, am sure they would stand up better than the tall A6 ones!

Great to see you both in the Playground as well as Cuttlebug Mania :-)
