Simon says Christmas in August!

Well every year I say that I'm going to start making my Christmas cards early and don't get round to it, so when I saw this weeks challenge over at Simon says stamp challenge blog, which is Christmas in August, I just had to join in and this means that I have officially started my Christmas cards! Yay!

Click on picture for full size and clearer view.

Supplies - Stamp - Magnolia, post card stamp from SU winter post set, coloured with promarkers, DP - Imaginisce, Cardstock - SU, Ribbon - SU, string, metal embellishment and blig from stash. Also used SU distress tool, inks and chalks to distress the edges. I used liquid applique on Tilda's coat and sprinkled glitter into it before using the heat tool on it.

The yummy imaginisce papers are new at Stampeezee, they have the stamps to match too and they are a snap at only 99p! Have a feeling I'll be using these alot!

Thanks for looking, hope you have a great day. I'll be back to choose a follower of the week tomorrow to receive the goodies shown a few posts ago.
