Christmas in July Bonanza AND a sneak peek!

I’m home from my fab weekend away with the best peeps on the planet – yep those gorgeous LOTV girls (and Richard and Danny – can’t leave them out now can I lol).  It was great to catch up with lots of you even though there’s never much time to chat.  And those of you that were lucky enough to get the new Christmas stamps before they sold out will be happily stamping away all week I guess lol.

Today sees not only the start of the new Christmas sneak peeks, but we are kicking off our

Christmas in July

with Wild Orchid Crafts and Lili of the Valley bonanza

with oodles of inspiration and prizes so stay tuned all week to the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog and Ideas to Inspire blog.  Each day some of the DT and Guest Designers will be showcasing Christmas products from Wild Orchid Crafts and the new Christmas stamps release from Lili of the Valley!!

So for my card today I am using one of the new Christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley, this one is called Pretty Poinsettia.  Isn’t she just gorgeous!!!  The sentiment is from the clear Additions sentiment sheets also from Lili of the Valley.

For the past few weeks I have made so many traditional Christmas cards for magazines and samples that I broke free and went with PINK lol.  I used those gorgeous Affection digi papers from Nitwit Collections.  Soooo pretty!

The embellies are all from Wild Orchid Crafts – gingham ribbon, hellebore, sweetheart blossoms, cherry blossoms, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, corner metal embellishment, pearls, and those gorgeous gold berries.  There are loads of new Christmas embellies on the website, you can take a peek here

I do hope you will join in with the challenge and also all the fun – there will be 3 or 4 prizes being given away each day plus 2 grand prizes at the end of the week, you need to be in it to win it!!
