My Time to Craft #325 Christmas in July

Well, we finally have sunshine and warmth here in S-E Hertfordshire! Is it possible that summer's here? I do hope so, one of my chemo side-effects is that I feel chilly all the time! Lots of hot tea and a woolly cardigan are the answer! (In fact the chemo is going ok, and the staff at the hospital are so encouraging. Hooray for the NHS! Awesome people!)

Seeing that it's warm and sunny, at My Time to Craft our theme is Christmas in July. We're a mischievous lot!!

Here's my card:

It's a small card, only 4" x 4". The image is from Penny Black's Holly Day Critters and I added stickles to the fur on his hat. The papers are from an old pad by LotV - sadly they are no longer available. I used holographic gold card from stash to mat and the ribbon came with a magazine a couple of years ago.

Do join in our Challenge, the more Christmas cards you can make before the panic sets in on December 1st, the better you'll feel!


I'm entering this into the Sparkles Monthly Challenge whose theme is also 'Christmas in July.'

Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

love Mags B x

SUPER card, love the shine of the mirror card and the image.

Glad all is going well with the chemo, as for feeling cold, with the Summer we are having even I am cold. We don't have sun but rain in Wales today. :(

Glad to hear your chemo is going well, the NHS certainly are awesome! I did hear that a heat wave is on it's way, though I think we're getting rain with ours, so that sounds like a fuzy-hair day for sure!
Gorgeous card, the little Penny Black doggy images always make me smile :)
