Chritmas in July.......

Morning peeps, I've done the first round of post holiday washing and ironing then spent the afternoon having a nana nap or a siesta yesterday. I'm off to work now, hopefully there aren't any major problems to sort whilst I've been away, counting down to my next week off at the end of August.......how bad is that. Being as there are a couple of challenges for Chrstmas in July it seemed apt to show you this card I made for Cuddly Buddly before going on holiday......a sweetie called "Its Santa", I made it as a swing tag on top of a pressie....well a fake pressie card, coloured with prisma pencils. the paper is from Cuddly Buddly as well and it wouldn't be Christmas without lots of glitter. I used glossy accents to make his boots shiny and dimensional.





Challenges
Dream Valley......a surprise.
Winter Wonderland.......Holly and the Ivy.
Paper Cutz......anything goes.
Polka Doodles......Christmas in July.
Creative Beli........christmas in July.
Pollycraft......Ho Ho Ho christmas in July
Oh La La.......circles

Oh well can't put it off any longer
catch up with you all after work
hugs n smiles
