ASFOS - Christmas In July......

Good morning folks and happy hump day!

Oh my word, made a Christmas card..... in July!!!!! I'm never so organised I have to say but when I saw this week's ASFOS Challenge I thought 'why not'? And I spent lots of time colouring and glittering on this one, so much so that I decided I didn't really need to overdo the embellies. When it comes to making the bulk of my Christmas cards the plan is to keep it clean and simple, but there may have to be the odd fancy one in between. So there it is..... a big tick on my list of Christmas cards to make. One down, zillions to go, lol!

The paper you can see tucked behind the image is from the Basic Grey Wassail range and I used the Martha Stewart Aspen Snowflake set to 'punch around the page'. I'm also entering this card into the Creative Card Crew Challenge where the theme is sparkle and shine.

Well just as I'm feeling all Chrismassy the sun has poked his head out..... now that's a rarity for August!!!

Have fun in what you do today and thanks so much for stopping by ;o) I am putting together a yummy candy for you soon so don't miss it!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

I absolutely love this Mum! I really like how you've made a scene with Tilda and the poinsettia is so pretty, and the glitter really finishes it off, wow! :) Love, Georgia xxxxxxxx
