Christmas in July & Dt call with Crafty Calendar!

Morning friends, hope you're all well!
I woke very early this morning to thunder, lightning & some light, cool
rain.....oh, it was bliss.....a welcome relief from the heat we've been having!
So today I'm here to share my Dt make for the latest challenge over at 
 where the theme this time is........ CHRISTMAS IN's never too
 early to get your Christmas craft on lol! I wanted to keep my card fairly flat 
for posting so I just did some simple matting & layering, added a  printed 
sentiment, a sprinkle of glitter & a wooden snowflake to finish. As usual we
 like to see any & all crafts (so long as it fits the theme) over at Crafty 
Calendar, you can enter up to 3 times & you have until July 29th to play....
.and the prize this month is a Christmas Goody Bag!
Don't forget to pop on over to the main blog where you can find some
gorgeous Dt inspiration......and we also have a Dt call....if you fancy joining
our fun, friendly team you can find all info there!
Thanks for calling today.....whatever you're up to.....have fun!

  1. Never too early at all Jo, if I didn't make Christmas Cards all year round I wouldn't have enough for both myself, my stall and orders for family and friends. So I will definitely be joining in at some point this month.
    Your gorgeous card has a lovely design and the fact that it's flat for posting is a bonus - something we need to think about with postage costs being so high. I love the non traditional colours you have used too.
