Christmas in July

A very good morning to you, I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, it was our Carnival yesterday and I still can't believe how glorious the weather was - we all had a lovely time.

It's Monday morning so it must be time for another Whoopsi Daisy Challenge and this week we would like you to MAKE A CHRISTMAS CARD, it's never too early to make a start on your Christmas Cards.

This is the card I have made using one of the gorgeous images from sheet 256, do pop over to the Whoopsi Daisy Digi Shop and have a browse, there are 4 fab images on each sheet.

I got the idea for this card from the LOTV Card Inspiration blog, but mine is not nearly as vintage as the lovely sample on their site.  I have coloured her with FlexMarkers and the papers are from Bearly Mine Designs.   Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to match the front:


Papers:  Bearly Mine Designs - Designer Extreme CD
Tools:  Marianne CreaTables - LR0136 and LR0185, CREAlies CL CS 08
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Embellishments:   string and pearls from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lollipop Crafts Challenge 84 - Christmas in July
The Poodles Parlour Challenge - Use a Digi Stamp
Jellypark Challenge - Christmas in July
CD Sunday Challenge - A is for - Angel
Addicted to Stamps Challenge 35 - Christmas in July
2 Sisters Challenge 101 - Christmas in July

Make sure you pop over the the Whoopsi Daisy Challenge Blog, check out the DT inspiration and join in with this weeks CHRISTMAS IN JULY challenge. Don't forget we are now an open challenge and will be accepting entries with non Whoopsi Daisy images. The winner will be picked at random and the prize will be one sheet of Whoopsi Daisyimages, however if you do use a Whoopsi Daisy image and you are the random winner you will win TWO sheets of Whoopsi Daisy images and there are four images on each sheet.

Thank you so much for looking in today, I hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Brilliant card, I look at your doily and it looks like a tatted doily, which I could make from thread, I take it it is printed on the paper. Lovely angel image.
