Christmas in July

The year seems to fly by so quickly, so I thought this July I would host a series of Christmas in July workshops to get people thinking about Christmas, then it wont be a made rush later in the year (that's my theory anyway!) I ordered a few new sets recently and have not had much time to play, but I did manage a few minutes the other day to whip up this cutie using the Holiday Line Up set. I really love this set, and I think there is so much you can do with it.
I have used green galore, real red, night of navy and whisper white here, and some markers to color. I used the 2 larger circle punches to make the red circle and the Merry Christmas message is from Occasional Greetings. Here is a close up of my favorite Snowman in the line up, isn't he just gorgeous?

You know I love this set - you've done a fab job, love the sparkly "snow"!! I have a stamp-a-stack coming up using these guys, they are sooo much fun!

Hi Leonie, just when I have convinced myself I don't need anymore Xmas stamps, you go and produce another fantastic xmas card, from a set I don't have!

P.S. love the cheers cards off to make two now for a 21st and 70th. Thanks for the ideas:)

wow,starting on Christmas cards, one of my stamping friends has borrowed all my Christmas stamp to create her cards early but she has had them for about three weeks now with no cards produced. I usually start in about August but I should start in July as it all gets too much later in the year.

I love this one. He's my favorite snowman as well. This one needs to go in the case file. Thanks for sharing. xx
