Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all and it is morning as I write this. Although I am scheduling this post I have just watched the Olympic Opening Ceremony and all I can say is Wowzers! It was fab. Very emotional.

Well away from the Olympics it's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'  and this week it really was a challenge for me cos this week we want to see

Christmas in July

Now as I usually think about Christmas cards on 18th December this really was a toughie! (Don't tell Abi I said that....)

My thanks to the lovely Nat who lightened my photo for me - been having a bit of difficulty with my phone and connecting to the computer so took the photo with my iPod but the camera isn't as good as my phone!

We're sponsored this week by Di's Digi Downloads and our usual monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen.

No new products were harmed in the making of this card! Use It Up 2012.

Image - LotV, coloured with Promarkers
Cardstock - Stampin Up

Remember of course to pop over to Sweet Stampin' to see the rest of the Christmassy inspiration the Sweeties have left for you.

Thanks for dropping by today. The boys and I are off to meet some Sweet Stampin Girls and Kiddiewinkles at Edinburgh Zoo.  I shall be avoiding the camera ;)

Hi Susan, don't tell Abi but I was moaning about doing a Christmas card as well - lets hope she doesn't read our blogs this week, eh!!

Really cute card you've made - love the image and the paper is perfect.

Just been wandering back through your blog as well and love the orange / yellow combo in your previous post. Great bargain as well with your Sugars.

Hope you had a good day at the zoo (and I bet someone will get a piccie of you!!).
