Christmas in July!!

Well there is another christmas challenge to do this week this time over at cute card thursday. I am well ahead of myself with christmas cards this year, so at least it won't be a last minute rush like last year!

I used the beautiful Anya from the rain, shine, snow set and coloured her with my koh-i-noor pencils and sansodor. After cutting her out with my craft knife, I attached her to the matt with 3d foam. Matt was cut out with my nesties. CS is from coredinations. I have embossed the white CS with the cuttlebug snowflake folder, I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this folder and have used it so much! If you don't own this folder may I suggest that you buy it, it will be the best £3.50 you have ever spent on making your christmas cards! The sentiment is from craftwork cards and I have added a little glitter around the border. I also added gitter to her earmuffs and fur trimming!

I have been given this wonderful award by the very sweet and talented Sandra. Thanks so much San for thinking of me, you really are so kind and I am delighted that you though of me.

I would like to pass this award onto several people who I consider to be my blogging friends and whose blogs and designs continue to inspire and amaze me every day.
Thanks so much ladies for sharing your designs with us all. Keep up the great work!

Well the weekend is finally here and for once I am not working it! If the weather stays this torrential over the weekend I can see me getting a lot of crafting done! Hope you all have a fab weekend whatever you're up to!

Thanks for stopping by to say hi!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
