Christmas in August

I've had a busy couple of days, not made any cards since Thursday, thought I had better put that right today! When I eventually got up, I ventured into my craft room and have only left it to eat! Been busy catching up on commissions and challenges and trying to avoid football which is on almost every telly in the house - its gonna be a long winter!



I am entering this card for 5 challenges
Winter Wonderland - Twinkle Sparkle
Sunday Sketch and Stamp - sketch challenge
My Time To Craft - Christmas
Dutch Dare - Christmas in August
Passion for Promarkers - Cocoa & Rose Pink

I'm doing quite well making Christmas cards so far this year, think this one takes it into double figures! It will be so nice not to have to burn the midnight oil in December making cards, I'll probably find something else to keep my busy tho!
I love this Edwin & Tilda image, one of my favourites, it reminds me of when I was a keen ice skater - a long time ago, too much of a wuss now!

Recipe
Stamps - Magnolia, Edwin & Tilda skating, Cuddly Buddly, Xmas sentiment
Paper/Card - Paper Mill, DCWV Xmas paper stack, Snow White pearlescent card from the Range
Inks - Memento, Rich Cocoa, Promarkers, various shades including Rose Pink & Cocoa
Embellies - Card candy from Craftwork cards, Glamour dust
Tools - MS snowflake punch, SU! circle, scalloped circle and corner rounder punches


Back tomorrow, lets hope for a bit warmer weather.....
