Warm Winter Wishes


It seems that at this time of year, for one reason or another, peoples thoughts turn to Christmas.  This is seen in the number of Winter/Christmas challenges.  I can relate to the sentiments on the Squirrel and the Fox.  Here in Australia it just isn't the same eating hearty roast meals in 40 degree temperature.  So lots of people now do cold dinners like seafood and salads and icecream plum pudding.  Therefor July is a good opportunity to do the big meal.

So for tonights card I gained inspiration from the challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox - Christmas in July and the Christmas Blog Challenge is for an Easel card.
Supplies:  White, red, green and Glitz card, Sassy Cheryl digital image, computer generated sentiment, Lyra pencils, Spellbinder dies, Papermania embossing folder and Carl punch
The Christmas in July challenges are Simply Create TooShellys Images and The Stamp Spot .  I do like The Stamp Spot image.
Allways Something Creative  - Is Christmas Already?
Always Playing with Paper  -  Anything Goes Christmas
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
I do feel a bit like the Vicar of Dibley in The Christmas Lunch Incident episode. 
That's all for tonight.  Thank you for dropping by.

  10. I can't imagine how it is to celebrate Christmas in the heat. I know many Norwegians go away on holiday to warmer places for Christmas, but I love Christmas traditions and stay here in the cold:) We can't always count on having snow, but for sure it'll never be warm!
    About your card, you've used a really cute snowman image and it's a great easel card design!
