Week 24 - Christmas in August Creative Card Crew Challenge

Good morning my lovelies its Tuesday again and another week at the Creative Card Crew Challenge. This week our challenge is Christmas in August. Can you believe that we are already half through August? i so need to get onw ith my christmas cards, otherwise it will be the usual last minute rush - oh no, cant be facing that again this year.

I have recently brought these gorgeous die cut sheets from Lili of the Valley, how gorgeous are these little girls. I have tarted them up a bit with some liquid pearls, glitter pens and stickles. I have used papers that i brought last year and didn't get round to using up. I am so going to try hard and not give into temptation with any new christmas papers this year!!

We have two fabulous sponsors this year, you will all be familiar with the lovely Nikki, at Bunny Zoes Crafts, she has given us two fabulous prizes to a lucky winner of this weeks challenge.

I am loving these new popcorn bear stamps, but have so far resisted temptation!!!!

And these charms will be a valuable accessory to your creative christmas cards with Popcorn Bear!

Like i say we have two sponsors the second one is the fabulous all that scraps, and if you are lucky enough to be our second winner you have the choice of 3 CC individual stamps or one set, wouldn't you just love that?

We will look forward to seeing your creations,so please join us. It is with great sadness that my lovely friend Tasha has had to step down from the DT due to family commitments. We will miss you so much Tasha, but you have so made the right decision, family must always come first. I will continue to visit your blog and see your wonderful creations, because you sure are one very talented lady.
Well im off into town shortly for a girly day of shopping with Jasmine. We have school uniform, stationery and coffee shops to work our way round, stopping off for lunch in between!!! shall look forward to speaking with you all again soon, hugs Linda x
