Is it really???!!

OK is it really the first official day of the summer hols.....yep! Is it really the millionth time my darling angels have had a noisy disagreement....yep! Is it really my craft desk under a mountain of rubbish, junk and bits of paper....yep! And it is really another Christmas project I am showing you,....yep....In July!!

Apologies for my absence over the last couple of days, yesterday was spent taking Heather riding at the beach, Saturday was lost to taking Heather to choir, and Friday well it was the last day of summer term!

Anyway as I was having a five minute clear of my desk, I came across these Christmas cards. I made last week. And yes we do have glorious sunshine outside, I just thought I would show them now before they are lost in the craft room tidy up, I have planned this week!

The main focus of both cards is the lovely A la Carte 'Dasher' stamp from SU and a very bold colour scheme of 'Real Red', 'Basic Black' & 'Whisper White'.Both cards fit a C5 envelope, so are easy to send via the post.

For decoration On the vertical card, I used the 'Big Shot' and the lovely 'Vintage Wallpaper' SU embossing folder, matting and layering the main 'Dasher' image. I added the merry from the 'Stampin' Up!' 'Tiny Tags' set,punched with the 'jewellery Tag' punch.

The horizontal card has the 'Dasher' image stamped straight on to the card blank, with decoration added in with a strip of 'Basic Black' card that has been punched along the edge, with the 'Scallop Trim Punch'.

Again ribbon was added and the merry tag secured with a pin.

If you want to get ahead with your Christmas cards, I am more than happy to order your SU goodies and have them delivered to your door, so you too can get festive over the summer season!

Hopefully I will have created enough space to 'play', whilst tidying and will be back tomorrow with a none Christmas make!
