Christmas in July!

Woo I've made 2 christmas cards in 2 days! My first card covers 3 challenges!
1) Sketch and Stash = sketch - used new gems and a very old topper!
2) Cute Card Thursday = xmas in July.
3) Cupcake Crafts = a christmas card.

and my 2nd card is for the Pollycraft challenge which is a sketch with the theme of food and or drink! This is my first time entering a Pollycraft challenge, the first of many! The above card is for my cousin Marie who's birthday it is on Friday. The flower gems were scattered on the table at my cousins wedding a couple of weeks ago so she gathered a load up for me to use on my cards, stating that it was her birthday soon!! The ribbon was also tied around the napkins!

I also have news for those few of you who don't already know, is that pre-orders for the Whiff of Joy autumn stamp kit are now being taken until the 7th August.

Katharina is offereing a fabulous blog candy of 2 of the stamp kits, competition is fierce, but you've got to be in it to win it!
