Dies/punches at Crafty Cardmakers! (Christmas in July #1)

Hi friends, happy Monday & happy July.....hope you're all well.
It's Christmas in July on my blog this month....I can't promise but the aim
is to post only Christmas makes for the whole of the month.....wish me luck
and if any of you want to join in do let me know!
Bur first......
we have a new challenge for you over at Crafty Cardmakers today,
I'm hosting and the theme this time is......
A nice, easy theme that I'm sure will appeal to lots of you....and there's so much you
 can do with them. Usually I use them as decoration but sometimes I like to use
 only dies/punches for the whole card as I've done here. I chose teal & white
 just to mix it up a bit, I layered the snowflake, added a die cut poinsettia, a sentiment
 then finished with a ribbon & a scattering of faux gems. If I remember rightly the
 poinsettia was a magazine freebie and all the other dies are the Paper Boutique.
Lots of inspiration for you over on the main blog and as usual, anything you like
to make we like to see.....just so long as you stick to the theme!
Thanks for calling & for any comment you might leave.
See you tomorrow.
