Dottie's World - Christmas in June!




It is my turn to set the Dottie's World Challenge this week!


On my brief travels around the world of Blog recently, I have noticed one or two Christmas cards popping up. Now I know it's "Flaming June" but I am sure many crafters out there strive to be prepared so this week I want to see:

Christmas in June!!

Chose your Charmed Download and get festive!


Now a while back the lovely Karen set us a Christmas Challenge, but to be honest I so enjoyed actually making a Christmas card without the stress of Christmas itself...hence the reason for another Seasonal Challenge........LOL......Now I have 2 Christmas cards all ready in a little box!

Here's what I ended up with:
I used Holly in England from the Holly & Madison World Tour Collection , circular sentiment from the Dottie and George Christmas Collection, and a few scraps of Basic Grey...this is only the second time I have used this download image and I love her- she is fab to colour in!

Now, with the teasers of the new Pixie Collection coming out shortly I was hoping they'd be ready for me to choose a little pixie, colour her red and adapt her into a Christmas Pixie, unfortunately the collection isn't quite ready BUT go over to Dottie's World and see what Lou has made for this week's challenge.......SQUEALS in delight!!!
Love to see you all joining in! The rest of the Design Team have some great inspiration, so it may be Flaming June, but join in and be one card closer to being prepared this Christmas!

Gorgeous card Adele, this image always creates a perfect card (must be the Mary Poppins vibe).
