Christmas In July


Ooo, I spotted a new follower, a warm welcome sweetie! Today we've been enjoying a Jubilee Marathon, it was 100 years since the Olympic Games were in Stockholm and they're celebrating it with a Marathon. The runners passed our house twice today, they still are in fact, some of them are even walking, it's quite an achievement anyhow!

We have a new challenge at Creatalicious Challenges, this time we want to see Christmas projects. I know it's early, but better get some of them done even if it's only July. I'll probably be sweating over them in December anyhow. Hope you'll join us big time! I made a pressie tag and was a bit inspired by the summer green colours.


We're being sponsored by Bizzy Becs Store, please check our blog for the details and to see the teams fab projects.

I used:
Santa, holly and sentiment stamps from Joanna Sheen
Derwent watercolour pens
Stickles and Perfect Pearls
Cuttlebug star die
Spelbinder ornament die
Versfine black ink
Pine Needle Distress ink

I would like to join:
Stampin' for the Weekend: Tags
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge: No Cards Allowed
ABC Christmas Challenge: N for Not A Card
Dream Valley Challenges: Anything But Square
Crafter's  Companion Monthly Challenge: Ho Ho Christmas

Warm hugs
Maarit
