Christmas in July ... again

The Sentimental Sundays challenge has had a little break but is back today with a new challenge which is "Christmas in July" (+ a greeting), luckily the weather here has been far from wintery in fact it actually feels like summer!  My card is CAS mainly cos still not had much time for crafting & also cos I saw a similar card on Pintrest & thought it looked cool.  I punched circles of scrap Christmas paper & edged with gold ink, I used a tag punch for the tops of the baubles & finished with ribbons, peel offs & a stamped greeting. I hope you can join us & you might even win a prize from our fab sponsor Zlatoena's Design :o)

The Challenges:
Lexi's Creations - Christmas in July
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Non-traditional Colours
Delightful - Add a Ribbon
Creative Knockouts - Christmas in July
Southern Girls - Christmas is Coming
Dazzling Diva - Non-traditional Christmas Colours
That's Crafty - Christmas in July
Bloggers - Christmas in July

I hope you're having a fab weekend!

End of an Era!

Yes today is the last Jellypark Friends challenge & I am proud to say I've been part of Claire's DT from the very beginning, which was July 2011 - yes 3 years! I have no idea where the time has gone but I've loved every minute :o)  For our last challenge the theme is "Christmas in July" & I used the Christmas Robins digi stamp which I coloured with ProMarkers.  The papers are from my (very large) stash of Christmas papers & I finished the card with some Kraft card, tags, brad, wooden snowflake & gems.  I really hope you can join us for this last challenge & I look forward to seeing your creations (it's never too early to get a head start on your Christmas crafting).

The challenges:
Passion for ProMarkers - Christmas in July 
Christmas Cards all Year 'Round - Non-traditional Colours
Crafty Hazelnut - Layer It Up
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas in July
Aud Sentiments - Christmas in July
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - For the Birds

Here is my first card I made for the Jellypark DT all those years ago:

I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.  I have so missed crafting lately but tomorrow hubby's out all day for a footy competition so I'm determined to get back in the swing of things :o)
