#85 Christmas in July!!

Where crafters are concerned it's never to early to talk about Christmas.

So we thought why not put a challenge in around the wonderful season this week?
 
After all, papers and ribbons are all coming into the shops for the festive season.
 
I got to play along with Stamp Designs by Kathryn this week..
 
 
I linked this fab reindeer up with Papermania's new Christmas releases.
 
 
The style for this card comes from my fabulous 'Hougie Book 3'. It's designed to go alongside the hougie board. If you follow my blog you'll know what a huge, huge fan I am of this green board :-)
 
So can't give the secrets away (you'll have to get the book and the board!!)
 
Here's a closer look a this fab digi stamp from Kathryn....
 
 
I've coloured this fella in with my spectrum noirs :-)
 

Bring the bell to life with a mixture of the greys and blue greys.
Finish him off with some glossy accents on his super red nose :-)


These postage stamps come from a sheet of them - check out Papermania's Lucy Cromwell range...


Break up your backing papers with banners and candi dots (great cheat brads!!)

 
Here's a little glimpse to the side workings of the card....
 
It's always fun to mix it up for Christmas. The best thing about this card is you'll never have to worry about it falling off the shelf!!
 
Good luck in our challenge this week over at...
