173 days to go!

Anyone who knows me, knows just how much I love Christmas, so much so, that I have a second celebration in July. Over at Crafty Boots Challenges, our new challenge is also celebrating Christmas in July so I have been very excited to have the opportunity to focus on everything Christmassy that is in my stash.


For this card I’ve used Starbird with ChickΒ and dressed him/her up as a robin. The holly is by Dylusions, the sentiment by Darkroom DoorΒ and the sleigh image is from Clearly Besotted.


I created the moon by masking off a circle and then swooshing on distress ink.


Then I stamped the holly and bird in the opposite corner and coloured them with distress inks and Polychromos.


I had to get my white pen out and add a little snow. I hope my friend Roberta (Robin!) will approve! Having created a little scene that I was very happy with, I struggled to finish my card off. In the end I opted for a simple mat and a pop of colour from some snow red ribbon.

Hope you’ll find time to join in with our challenge and I’m looking forward to a big dose of early Christmas joy πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Whether you are celebrating Christmas, or American Independence Day I hope you have good one. Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. I just love this card, I originally thought that the background was glitter card, it was only when I saw the close-up that I realised you had created the effect with your white pen, so clever.

    • Thank you. The snow worked better on the darker blue version I did, but I felt the darkness was a bit overwhelming. I played with glitter and faux snow but in the end opted not to use it – may add some to another version! x

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
