My Time to Craft Dt #252 'Christmas in June'

Good morning, all! I hope you're having a good weekend! My daughter is over from Dublin. She has a job there, and now she and her partner are looking for their own place. Exciting!

Children grow up so fast!!!

it's time for another Challenge at My Time to Craft and this time it's Christmas in June. Well, it's never too early to get the Christmas cards started, is it?

(I apologise for the naff photo!)

I have some old die-cut sheets of images from Lili of the Valley coloured by the amazing Bev Rochester. I love these cute children decorating the tree - and I wish i could colour like that!!!

The striped paper came from a pad of 'Back to Basics' Christmas paper by Dovecraft, and the sentiment is from a sheet of foiled Christmas sentiments, both of which came from Hobbycraft. The ribbon is from stash, and the snowflakes are made with a Martha Stewart punch and then glittered.

Go and see the gorgeous Christmas creations made by my teamies, and make a Christmas card for the challenge! Every card made now means a bit less panic in December!

Thanks for looking!
