Christmas on the last day of July!

Having thought that I never wanted to see another Christmas card after last year's mad dash I have been re-energised by some of the cards appearing over at I love PMs challenge this week Challenge #25 'Christmas in July'. I have purchased some darling little penguins and christmas trees from the Pink Petticoat shop (more of them another day!). I have to say that I feel very in the Christmas mood.

So I thought I would join in on this, the very last day of July, with a cute little Tilda (thank you to the kind image donator).

She is obviously coloured with PMs of the festive variety. Her fur is created with glossy accents and Glamour Dust (Crystal) - I am very pleased with this product as it is easy to use and gives a real sparkle - 10/10.

Tilda is teamed with lots of card stock from DCWV which has been texturized with sizzix dies - 'Merry Christmas', 'Holly' and 'Christmas Trees' (can you tell I was trying them out for the first time?) - really like all of them. Sentiment is D&D as is the snowflake stamp in gold Dew Drop Ink. Paper is Dovecraft 'funky'. The poinsetta is a sizzix die. I have created the ribbon with a MS punch (again a product that I highly recommend for its efficiency and overall effect. Card candy (as it's Christmas) is Craftwork's 'China Town' - gorgeous reds and gold that said buy me as walked past in Bee Crafty!

What a lot of waffle - anyway you get the drift that I am getting in the festive mood. You never know this may mean I am organised by December!

Have a lovely weekend whatever mood you are in.
