Creative Inspirations Challenge - Christmas in August

Hello my lovelies

It's Sunday Morning and time for another wonderful Challenge over at

Creative Inspirations

Our Theme this week chosen by the lovely Jude is Christmas in August. We want to see all those lovely Christmassy images and papers, maybe a bit of glitter, oh I love making these cards cause it gives me carte blanche on using glitter.

I've used a Prairie Fairy Designs image called Beary Sleepy - are they not the cutest pair you've ever seen. The two of them sound asleep knee deep in snow (snowtex) I've colo
ured the fairy with Pro Markers and glittered her little wings, fur trims on her coat and boots. I've only touched the bear with a little blue chalk at his paw and nose. He doesn't need much at all.

The little red nestie's I've used to mount the image and sentiment are made from leather, I've tried to zoom in to show it up better. The rest of the recipe is below this post.

You need to pop over to the blog and see the wonderful Christmassy creations the other members of the DT have made for you, they are just adorable.

Our Sponsor this week is none other than Whiff of Joy Stamps - and as always there will be a fantastic prize up for grabs. But just in case you want one of their beautiful stamps before the challenge finishes then here is the link to their on line store. Just click on the banner and hey presto you're there.

Thank you so much for coming over to see me, I hope you will join us this fortnight with all your wonderful Christmas delights. Suzi x
