Christmas In July ….

Good evening crafters, as promised I popped the names of all those of you who leave me comments regularly into a little draw and the winner is;

Well done Chris, email me with your address and I’ll send you a little prize
Thank you all for your lovely comments and continued support, it’s very much appreciated

Onto today’s card, it’s Christmas in July over at Lili’s Little Fairies and I made this card using the new mini masterpiece sheets from Lili of the Valley

Core’dinations card
Papermania Henbury Lane patterned paper (my favourite Christmas paper pad)
Lili of the Valley sentiment
Tim Holtz memo holder
Lace and seam binding from The Ribbon Girl
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Spellbinders labels dies

I looped a little strip of micro beads in my flowers and I really like the effect

Right I think it’s bedtime for me, I had a meal with the girls last night and it was a late night with altogether too much food and wine.
I’m feeling my age these days and if I miss out on any sleep I need to catch up, I’m turning into my Mother!!

Have a lovely evening everyone


  1. Gorgeous card Anne. One of my (many) favourite LOTV images and the layout and colours are gorgeous. Such beautiful flowers too

  3. Hi Anne,
    This card is stunning and the colour scheme is beautiful.
    I am so impressed with these image sheets by LOTV, they really have gone all out and produced something spectacular. Bev Rochester must be very proud too, as I believe she did the original colouring for them didn't she?!
    Hope you get a good nights sleep.
