Christmas in July!

Hello there,

As I'm getting ready to add my card to this blog post, I can already hear many of you shouting....Noooooooo, not Christmas already, so I'll keep it brief!

Jean Hardy from Crafty Individuals was on Hochanda yesterday sharing her gorgeous Christmas stamps and other festive products.  I made several samples for the shows which I hope to share with you over the coming weeks.  I thought Jean did really well and she looked relaxed throughout the two shows.  Her demos were fabulous and if you missed the shows, then you can always watch them on Hochanda rewind for the next couple of weeks.

The first card I'm sharing with you is the one which I gave you a sneaky peek of in my last post so here's the full card:

Featuring: CI-241, CI-327, CI-456, CI-462, CI-463

This one was shown a few times and is one of my favourites.  It's a shame that they didn't take the tag out as It has another one lovely stamp on it.  Fortunately, I did take a photo before I sent it off to Jean, so here's how it looks:


I hope you like this and I'll post more of my samples over the coming weeks.

Take care and enjoy your weekend, whatever you may be doing x

  13. Oh Sandra!
    At first sorry for this late visit on your blog, I'm just so busy... with my children on holidays now, it's really not easy to blog and stay long behind my PC as usual. The two last ones - twin girls - are only 9, and so active! that's the only reason why I couldn't see this earlier, sorry again.
    But really, I'm so happy because this card was among my favourites during the show!!!!! I love it to bits, this is a marvellous one Sandra, fantastic scene and card, I'm totally in awe.
    Hugs, Coco xx
