Christmas in July!

I know, I know, what's wrong with me! Thinking of Christmas at this time of year! I have to place most of the blame on the lovely Pam Smith. Yes, it was she that got me in the Christmassy mood! Pam posted several brillant cards on the photo gallery on the Particraft website (really, have a look at them, they're lovely!) and that is all I want to have a play with now! This card was made from one of the new Christmas stamp sets that is to be released very soon. Just a sneak peek at it for now. I wanted to be a bit different than the traditional Christmas colours so I've done this in teal and light and dark pink. This poinsettia is lovely for paper piecing techniques too. I've used the pine needles distress ink around the edge on the top and to stamp the pine sprig underneath the poinsettia and worn lipstick around the edges on the bottom of the card. If you can bear to have a look at Christmas cards this early, let me know what you think of it! Although, I can't promise this one will be the last. I'm having too much fun for that!
Happy stamping, Sue x

It's lovely Sue and I'm sorry! It's never too early to play with Christmas stamps. Let's see some more soon.

It's lovely Sue, but I just can't bear to start thinking about Christmas in the middle of Summer. I have a struggle to motivate myself in December!!!
