Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

How could i resist the current challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday........i'm already in Christmas mode getting all the samples made for my workshop on the 25th!

This week's challenge is called:

"Christmas in July!"

I think i have mentioned before that i keep all the usable scraps that are left after using my Cricut machine, and the 'frame' (pale blue swirly bit!) on the front of my card today is one of those scraps! After cutting some ovals from white card i am left with lots of these 'frames' which i put to one side to use later ........ then i just cover with them with the DP of my choice :)

Image.... Whipper Snapper 'Warm Snowman Wishes'

Colour.... Promarkers

Sentiment.... HOTP

Papers.... Anna Griffin

Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots folder

Artoz flowers, papermania brads & HOTP metal pinwheels

ribbon was a gift from my friend Margaret

I just adore this snowman image............must get me some more Whipper Snapper stamps to add to my current quota of two!!

Thanks for popping in today, and don't forget you still have a week to go if you would like to enter my sketch challenge ...............see you tomorrow!
