Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #14

Thanks to everyone who took part in last weeks 'Party Animal' challenge, all wonderful cards and some really fun ones too.
On to this weeks Stamptacular challenge which is the theme of...........


"CHRISTMAS IN JULY"


We want to see your creations with a Christmas theme be it a card, ATC, altered item etc.. All we ask is that there must be at least ONE stamped item on your project to be in with a chance of winningg this weeks prize which is being sponsered by the talented Sally-Ann and her DigiStamp Boutique.
The DT have been really busy with wonderful seasonal projects to help inspire you so please check them out on the challenge blog and visit their personal blogs to see how they created their designs. Here's my seasonal creation.


The image is a woodmounted Expressions stamp which I recieved as a pressie last Christmas from Steve, and this was it's first ink-up. Coloured with H2O's and gold metallic Sakura pen. Oval cut from nesties in the bug. DP's are all Funky Fairys as is the sentiment round, from the 'Lets Get Traditional' kit, distressed the edges of the papers and sentiment using a nail file. Scalloped base card is from Craftwork Cards. Added gold ribbon mesh from stash to one corner and card candy to all corners.

I hope you'll be able to join us this week for the challenge, it's never too early to make a start on a Christmas card or project.

Enjoy your Sunday!!!
