Christmas in June

Hi everybody

At the  One Stop Craft Challenge  we have decided to switch the pace, and I know it is mid-summer, but for us it is Christmas in June!  So peeps, look at the scope you have to produce some great Christmas cards for us.

My card is a very simple one.  My image is Stampin Up, which I bought some time ago and never used.  I embossed the background card with an M-Bossabiltiies folder.  The background I have stamped on is inked with several shades of distress ink, and I used the same shades on the stamp, but with the addition of some darker dye ink as well.  Sentiment is Penny Black.

We have two sponsors this week:

Firstly, we are sponsored this week by Crafty Emma, who has provided a lovely set of stamps as a prize.  Sadly Emma has decided to close her business, so this is the last time we will see her as a sponsor.  We wish Emma well for the future.

And, secondly, we are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts - our very own Shelley, who has very kindly provided a prize of of £10 voucher to spend in her store.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

2 Sisters - Anything Goes
Challenge Up Your Life - No Lines
Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge - Let's get Inky
Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude - Anything Goes

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,
