CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
Thank you for all your recent comments.
I very much appreciate everyone that you make
as I know time is precious to all of us.

Today I have a Christmas card I made.
The colours are quite unusual for a Christmas
card so I hope you like it.



This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is from the Squeeze Cards Christmas
Cottage Delights CD.
I have used Cosmic shimmer White pva glue 
dots round the edge.
The snowy bits are done with Cosmic Shimmer 
Iced Snow. 
The Happy Christmas die cut was a freebie
from a craft magazine, and I offset it slightly in
the 2 colours.

Thank you for your visit, and I hope you all 
have a wonderful weekend.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
challenges.
