Christmas in July again

Usually by now I am well on with my Christmas cards - Not this Year!
I thought it was a good opportunity to add 7 cards to my box...and so far I am up to 5...

Wednesday's Challenge was Humor plus Bingo

I started with this amusing Bugaboo stamp coloured with Promarkers and sparkle
Scene It Christmas Sheep. I cut it out using a nesting die.


Then there was the Bingo element...


I went for Bugaboo Image, Funny Sentiment and Sparkley...


 I will link this to the Wednesday Challenge!

AAAAiiiiAAAAHH!  I have run out of printer ink - so Thursday's card cannot use a Bugaboo image - hope I can get some cartridges before the end of today...!!

Anyway Thursday's Challenge is a Photo Challenge


When I lived in Australia it always amused me to see
 Frosty the Snowman in strong sunlight!!

Anyway here's my card... I found some Christmas rose and mistletoe paper in my stash to place behind the palm tree die negative, cut in textured Kraft cardstock.
The card base is cream.
I used the same paper to stamp my snowman using SU's Cold Play. The sunhat came from SU's Garden From the Heart. I used Promarkers to add a touch of colour.



I added torn gold paper for the sand and printed the words with individual letter stamps on the Christmas paper.



I will submit this to the Thursday Challenge!
I also noticed that 52 Christmas Throwdown has a Colour Challenge


Well I think my favourite Christmas colours are red and orange - and I love this paper...so I will submit this to 52 Christmas Throwdown


Happy Christmas Crafting!
