Stamptacular Challenge-Christmas in July

The Stamptacular Challenge this week is 'Christmas in July' so another incentive to get a christmas card made.....have got about a dozen done now. At this rate may actually have the bulk of them made by December!!!!!! Watercoloured the oh so cute little Sugar Nellie boy....HOTP xmas papers......Dovecraft snowflake brads......die cut tiny snowflakes.....Making Memories metal sentiment......ribbon from stash.
The blues are a lot lighter than the photo suggests......apart from the boy who seems to have photographed perfectly....camera workings are a complete mystery to me!!!!

It's just me again...I just wanted to let you know that this Christmas Card posted on our "One for the Boys" challenge that we had a few weeks ago instead of this week's challenge...thought you might want to add it to this week's challenge too so everyone on the team can see how beautiful it is!

Hugs,
Priscilla

Oh how great! I really must get some Christmas cards done but have no motivation yet! Seems like there is so much to do before then but I know I will be rushing around still waiting for the glue to dry on December 20th!!
