Creative Inspirations #64 Christmas In July - DT card

Good Morning Everyone,  It's time for another wonderful challenge over at

Our theme for this fortnight is Christmas in July.  So if you haven't made a start on those Christmas cards/projects now is the ideal opportunity because believe me it will be here before we know it. This year is moving so fast. Well it is for me. lol.

I'm using one of the latest releases from Sugar Nellie, I think I've found a new favourite Christmas image.  I was so lucky to have won this sweet Furry Friend stamp including the papers, sentiment, ribbon. In fact everything on this card except the snowflakes was part of the candy just for doing the amazing New Release blog hop (which was entirely my pleasure).

I've used Pro markers for her face and hair and Derwent water colours for clothes and that adorable polar bear. Sprinkled Glamour Dust on her fur trim and little muff.

Our sponsor this week is the fab Letraset and the lucky winner will win a set of Pro Markers plus a bleedproof pad.


That's about it from me for now so I'll say bye for now and wish you all a fantastic day.

Challenges I would like to enter are:

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge:  The theme this month is Cool it. 
Guylou's Inimitability Challenge: Have a recipe of 1 ribbon, 2 patterned papers and at least 3 pieces of bling.
Cute Card Thursday Challenge: Going round in Circles this week. They would like to see Circles on your creation.
Crafting for all Seasons Challenge: Would like to see Furry Friends this week.
Pattie's Creations Challenge: Would like to see Glitter/Bling this week.
Christmas Card Challenge: Have the theme of Faith/Christmas this week.
Simon Says Stamp Challenge:  Anything goes this week with the option of Lace.

All of the following Challenges Have a Christmas theme.
