Christmas card in July

Yes you read that right, 
I have noticed that a lot of blogs are asking for Christmas cards, so thought I would start on mine...
I now have about ten made... but showing just one today...
It is going into some competitions... Well you never know..that random org may pick me one day
(rolls eyes while thinking... your not that lucky Claire)
Onto the blog's

Catch The Bug Challenge blog - Christmas in July.. this blog has weekly and daily competitions going on... hop over and have a look.

Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Now the inspiration for this card came from one of the books my mum in law sent over for me for my Birthday in June, although in the book is was made for a birthday notice board
I liked it, so thought maybe it would work for a Christmas card.
It did take me a while to make as getting the ribbon to stick and stay straight was a challenge
and the cutting out of the flowers on my machine, one at a
But I think it came together quite nicely..
even Paul likes it... !!!

Right time to get on, Tasmin has brought half a tree in my work room, and chewed it into little pieces, so I need to sweep that up, and I have spent way too much time blogging this morning... 
I am also in the mood to colour, so I need to print out some digi images and stamp some Christmas Tilda and Edwin's.
(grumpy face as they are the only two stamps I have)

Thanks for popping in xx
