Christmas in July


I don't want to moan again but a bit of a error here I should of made the strip of wavy snow higher because once I added the gems it took an enormous amount to fill each dot.
But for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge of Christmas in July and one of the few cards I've done for Christmas I'm hoping this will kickstart me into making a few more.
The three Hedgies just so happened to find their way to me from a sale with a couple of others, well we all know how expensive they are so a few pennies cheaper couldn't go amiss.
The paper is from Penny Black too, and I've used the curve die from Spellbinder for my snowdrifts. Just turned one round to give highs and low. My little houses and trees are Memory box die, some glamour dust to finish along with a bit of glossy accents to make some ice for the Hedgies to skate on.
Do pop over to check out the team and hope you can join us this month, also I hope Mr Blogger publishes this post while I'm off to MJ All day Crop at Newbury.
