Challenge #6 - Christmas in July!

Good morning crafty friends, hope you're all well.
I can't believe we're about to start the 6th challenge.....doesn't time
 fly when you're having fun.....and I sure am having fun! I thank you all
 so much for taking the time to join in with my challenges.
So, this time the theme is going to be......
We all love Christmas and it's never too early to get started!

Here's my make......
I used kraft card, cream hammered card & dies from the Paper Boutique
for the base & the sentiment. The robin is a Sizzix die & I added
some die cut foliage & paper flowers then finished with faux pearls.

This month I have lovely Liz from Crafty Sunflower joining me as
guest designer.......

I was delighted to be invited by Jo to be her Guest Designer for July.  I live in the West of England with my hubby, Alan.   I was an Infant school teacher in a former life, a job I loved, but I’m now happily retired.  When I was teaching, I ran an after school scrapbooking club for over ten years with my Teaching Assistant, hoping to inspire the next generation.  All the children were 6 or 7 years old and they created some amazing scrapbooks.  I have always enjoyed crafting, something I inherited from my Mum.  In the past I’ve enjoyed knitting, sewing, cross stitching, patchwork, cake decorating, making corn dollies and scrapbooking.  For the last 20 years or so, card making is what I enjoy most.  My style is generally CAS, although I sometimes go out of my comfort zone and get really inky and messy!  I belong to a local craft group which meets once a month and it’s always fun to craft with friends.

 and here's Liz's make......

  6. Waving to Liz!! How lovely to see you featured here. It's always a treat to see what you have to share. Your reindeer looks like he's maybe had one too many....candy canes!! Ha. Fun card.
    What a beautiful robin card, Jo. (See.....even an American can finally learn what a European Robin looks like!! :) ) I love the fancy shape. The kraft is wonderful against the white diecuts and the robin's bright colors.
    Thank you for another lovely challenge.
