Hostess Monday and Christmas in July

A scheduled post for me today as I am on holiday.  I have combined two posts in one today as I was so busy before I went away I just ran out of time to do anymore crafting!  Today it is my turn to host Hostess Monday at Digital Delights Blog and over at Lexi's Creations we have a new challenge starting this fortnight with the theme Christmas in July so I thought I would use this cute image for both makes.

I have used super cute Candy Cane Jingles available at Digital Delights here.  I coloured him with my Copics and used some papers I got free in a magazine.  The Merry Christmas is washi tape from Martha Stewart.  I used a Spellbinder die A2 Scallop Borders One for the border - one of my most favourite dies.  The snowflake banner is by Whiff of Joy and the poinsettia is Marianne with sone WOW embossing powder on it.

Please pop over to Lexis to see the rest of the DT makes and have a go at entering to get ahead of your Christmas makes!

Thank you so much for looking, take care xx

I really love non-traditional colours on Christmas cards Susan, and the pink on this one is wonderful! What a cute little snowman, and once again, you've done a great job colouring the image.
