Christmas in July

Good morning hope you are all well and if not wishing you a speedy recovery!

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Crafty Sentiments.  To celebrate our new Christmas release the new challenge is Christmas in July.  The DT have all done projects other than cards but entrants just need to be anything Christmassy!  Here is my project:


Oh yummy but not very Christmassy!  Mmm that's true so here is what I did:


I have used the brand new Crafty Sentiments Time For Presents.  I have coloured it with my Copics and added Stickles.  The paper is from Nitwits Merry Christmouse too and also Pink Petticoat.  I have used the following dies: Marianne - Poinsettia and flourish, CC Cutter - holly and Sizzix - tag.  Needless to say the chocolate didn't last very long!!

We have a fabulous prize up for grabs this week, this lovely rubber stamp:



And don't forget if you want to win some of our New Release Christmas Stamps or if you fancy joining the GDT for 2 months then pop over to the Inspirational Blog you still have time but it finishes tomorrow!!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Stamp and Create - Christmas in July
Whoopsidaisy - Christmas in July
Crafting When We Can - Christmas in July

Dave is off hiking in the Lakes today with Bernard my first husband so I have a day all to my self - lots of crafting so I hope Mr Mojo can come out an play I think all this sun has scared him off!!  Have a great day whatever you are doing and thank you so much for visiting. Take care xx

Hi Susan, a fabulous cover, love the poinsettia and holly and I'm afraid the choc wouldn't last long with me either!! It would only melt in this weather lol.

This is fabulous Susan. I love the design and such a cute image.
It's probably a good thing the choc didn't last too long I think it would be melting in this heat.
