Just Cute Bears #26 Christmas in July.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend wherever you are and whatever the weather has been like! It has been a bit mixed here. Saturday was fine, but.......there were some little showers. Quite a fine evening here as I write on Saturday evening. A bit windy but at least I am indoors not trying to play golf like the guys taking part in the Open golf at St Andrews!!

Thanks to everyone who took part in our last challenge over at Just Cute Bears, as usual there were some gorgeous cards. This week our challenge is "Christmas in July." This should give you a wee start with your Christmas cards, unless of course you have been very good and been making one every week. No I haven't either! I made two at a crop yesterday but they're not for me to keep unfortunately. Anyway here's my card and I hope you like it. My talented teamies have made some gorgeous cards and they'd be delighted if you popped over to their blogs and left them a comment.

I used :-

DP :- Bo Bunny.

Image :- LOTV.

Colouring :- Promarkers.

Sentiment and card candy :- Craftwork Cards.

Viva Decor gloss pen for snowflakes, Stickles, jewels and ribbon.

I'm also going to enter a few challenges with this card :-

Lili of the Valley :- Sketch and image.

Cute Card Thursday :- Get a head start - Christmas card.

Passion for Promarkers :- Animals.

Pollycraft :- Bold and bright.

Teddy Stampers :- Whatever you like plus 2 of something (or multiplesof 2) - 2 presents, 4 card candies, 2 DPs.

Magical Crafts :- Christmas in July.

I think that's it then girls. I hope our challenge helps you to start your Christmas cards and I'm looking forward to seeing what you've made. There are so many talented people in blogland and it's a privilege to visit your blogs.

Enjoy what's left of your weekend.
