Christmas In June...



I've usually made a few more Christmas cards than I have by this time in the year but then again I much prefer making them when it is cold & wintery & I can have my Christmas music on :o).  Anyway this card was going to be for a Sentimental Sundays challenge sponsored by Fred She Said but for some reason or another it never got finished until now.  The papers are from my stash (might have been from a freebie pad with a magazine), the image is Pointy Poinsettia Flowers (pre-coloured) & I used some micro beads for the centre.  I finished the card with a die cut border, gems & a greeting.

The challenges:
Crimbo Crackers - Vintage
Fab 'n' Funky - Christmas
Alphabet - J for Jewels
Natalie & Amy - Christmas
Simply Create Too - Shabby Chic
Crafting By Designs - Get Ready for Christmas
Open-Minded Crafting - Vintage
Crafty Hazelnut's - Christmas
12 Month's of Christmas - Vintage


At last the weather has warmed up here & we actually had some sun here so hubby & I had a walk along our local seafront after we'd been for a cooked breakfast with friends - so the perfect way to start the weekend.  Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend whatever you're up to!

I always admire those who make Christmas cards all throughout the year- I just can't do it. The poinsetta is so delicate and nice. Matches well with the other die. Thanks for joining our Vintage Challenge at Open-Minded Crafting challenges. Take care.

what a beautiful Christmas card! I'm right with you on being behind of my usual quota by this time.... guess we both need to crank out the carols, make some hot cocoa, and get a few more made. :)

hope you have a most wonderful week!
