2 Sisters Challenge Blog Christmas in July

Good morning all, i hope you are all having a great weekend.  Today, i have some news to share with you. 

I am delighted to announce that i have been asked to join the fabulous 2 Sisters Challenge Blog Design Team.  Yay!  I start today and will be providing DT inspiration every Saturday for the next 6 months so i hope you will all come and join in the fun at the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog .

During the month of July 2 Sisters Challenge Blog will have a month long theme of Christmas In July. Each week they will have a new sponsor and a new prize. And each week they will also have an optional bonus. You are free to make a Christmas project or you can join in and create a Christmas project using the bonus. Everyone who follows the challenge and rules will be entered for a chance to win that week's prize. But as an added extra bonus during the entire month of July anyone who uses the bonus will be added into a special surprise drawing at the end of the month.  How cool is that?

This is Week 99 and the sponsor is the fabulous Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.

Incase you have forgotten, the theme is: CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Bonus (optional): No Red and Green 

Here is my card:


I printed the image onto white cardstock and coloured it with copics.  To the tree, i added some bling in the shape of some mini gems.  You probably can't see it in the photo but i added some 'snow' to the bottom of the card, the edge of the pink cardstock (yes, the cardstock is pink even though it looks red in the photo!) and i also added some snowflakes around the image using Ranger Embossing Tinsel. The snowflakes stamps are part of a set from The Greeting Farm.  The corner dies are by Cheery Lynn.

Thank you for visiting.  If you leave me  comment, i will know you stopped by and i will come and visit you too.  Have a good day.

Hugs, Jill x
