The Roses Challenge - Christmas In July


Good Morning,

 It's the last Sunday of the month so that means it's time for The Roses Challenge. The lovely Connie picked Christmas in July for her challenge, I'm really looking forward to all the Christmas cards the girls will be sharing. If you want to check them all out you will find the links under The Roses tab at the top of my page.......Go say hello!


I think this is the first Christmas card I've made this year but I should start adding a few more.......it's getting ever closer!



My card uses a Waltzingmouse frame from the Holiday Labels No 14 set with a sentiment from Nutcracker Sweet which is another Waltzingmouse Christmas set.

Lots of dies on this little number.....Spellbinder Labels 14 (naturally) as well as the Rose Creations and foliage dies with a petite oval die for the sentiment. The pretty Doily die is from Cheery Lynn Dies.


There we are Connie, hope you like my Christmas in July card and thanks for getting me started!

Hope you're week end is going well.  We started ours well with a party to celebrate friends Golden Wedding Anniversary on Friday with Dinner and dancing.  Saturday was a lovely day here with plenty of sunshine so the garden is starting to dry out after all the rain.

I'll be back on Monday to share the Golden Wedding Anniversary card I made.  Tuesday is AnnaBelle Stamps 1st Blog Hop for August.  We get to show you a brand new set ..... it's a beauty and as always Andrea has a prize for one lucky person so come and join us!!!!!

Enjoy the rest of your week end........

I'm entering my card in the following Challenges:
