Christmas in July Day 31!

Hi crafty friends, happy wet, dull & much cooler Wednesday!
Oh, how nice it is to hear the rain....still warm but a welcome relief from the
blazing sun we've been having.....a cool breeze & it would be perfect. I am on Day 31 of my Christmas in July challenge to make only
Christmas themed makes for the whole of July.....and I made it!
To be honest there were days I thought I must have been crazy but I stuck
with it & now I have a very decent size pile of Christmas cards & toppers.
For my final make I chose a scallop circle base with a cream hammered
card layer......the simply added the bench & cat couple die cuts, a
stamped sentiment, a few faux gems & a little ribbon bundle at the top.
Not sure what to do with this make......maybe a card topper, maybe an easel
card....or maybe a decoration for the tree? Can't decide so I'll leave it
for now & come back to it later on in the year.
Thanks so much to all who have visited & left's so very
much appreciated, I love reading them.
