Tisn't the Season to be Jolly.........

Firstly my heart goes out to everyone in Norway today, what a tragedy. I can't imagine how all those poor families are feeling, my thoughts are with them all today.

Well it is only July although it feels like Winter with this awful weather we are having!   So I have seen lots of Christmas cards on blogs in the last week or two and I though why not have a go?  Christmas cards are my favourite cards to make and with lots of Christmas challenges in blogland this week I thought I would take the opportunity to make my first one. 

This was made with 2 challenges in mind Winter Wonderland  -Holly and the Ivy and Creative Inspirations -Xmas in July.

I used My Minds Eye papers, Festive Foilage stamp set from Waltzing Mouse, flowers from my stash and seam binding(I think this Moss Green colour is perfect for Christmas projects), button and Bakers twine from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. They have a great offer on Bakers twine at the moment.

How many more Christmas cards do I have left to make I wonder? Quite a few I think!

Don't forget you can win some lovely Ribbon HERE

Thanks for visiting,
