Christmas in July

Its my turn to host this weeks dare over at Daring Cardmakers and guess what its Christmas!!!!

We all need to make a head start with these cards.  I know I have a few to make to post back to the UK.  Its always difficult to start making them early especially when the weather is so sunny and lovely.

So I would like to see your Christmas Cards this week.

Here is mine.

I have used my trusted snowflake dies from Spellbinders.  I have inked around it to make the outline then cut one out of blue glittered card.  The backing paper and sentiment are from Pink Petticoat.

I also had to add one of these little jingle bells as a finishing touch.  I think they are very festive and really cute.

Don't forget to stop by the Design Team Blogs for more gorgeous inspiration and I can't wait to see your creations over at Daring Cardmakers.

Have a great weekend.

July elemental Inspiration

Its the first Friday of the month which means elemental inspiration time over at Daring Cardmakers.

Such a pretty picture this month.

The challenge is to pick at least 3 elements from the image to create your card.

I have made a golden wedding anniversary card so the elements I have used are the colour gold, ribbon, organza, flowers and leaves.

I made the flower using circles of organza material and melted the edges to form the shape and added a little bead to the centre.

Don't forget to stop by the design Team blogs for more lovely inspiration.

Its a little post from me today as I am packing to go away on holiday so I am busy ironing and sorting clothes.
