Lexi's Creations....Christmas in July

Hi Susan here....

Today over at Lexi's Creations we are starting a new challenge....the theme for this new challenge is
'Christmas in July'
A really nice easy challenge for this time of the year when we are all thinking of making cards for family, friends and to can make anything for this challenge not just cards, but ATC's, bookmarks, tags, 3D item, scrapbook pages, altered items, you decide it's quite an open challenge as long as the Christmas theme is carried on your project. You can find full details on the challenge blog, plus some fabulous inspiration from my design team.

Here is my card....

I love making Christmas cards, great fun!
My backing papers for this were from Nitwits, all the edges have been distressed with inks and glittered with stickles.
The large gingerbreadman is a bigz die from Sizzix. Don't you just love gingerbreadmen, they are such jolly little fellas!
The gorgeous ribbon is from our local market.
The calendar is one of my own designs

This is such a cute digi image, designed by our own Lexi Lee called 'Gingerbread House' and available from Fairy Dust Crafts
I have used promarkers for the colouring and distress inks for the edging. Stickles here there and everywhere to make it glitter.

Thank you for taking the time to look and for your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
