CHRISTMAS IN JULY......

Morning all.....i say this every week but where's the week gone again...it soon will be Christmas before we know it!....
This week at JUST CUTE BEARS the theme is "Christmas In July"....so dig out those Christmas stamps and come and join in!...that will be one less to worry about two weeks before Christmas...lol.



For my card i went with a Forever Friends stamp that's exclusive to the Glitter Pot "Christmas Gift"...coloured using Promarkers and Prisma's...the sentiment is also part of a FF stamp i just inked the sentiment part up.
The base is made up of two different size shaped cards cut using my Cricut and the "Wild Card"...the white bottom layer is 5 3/4" and the black layer is 5 1/4".
The other layers have been done with the scallop circles nesties.
I've threaded some gingham ribbon througth the holes which i love to do with these type of cards.
Finished off with some glamour dust to the ribbon and bow on the image and some diamond stickles around is feet.
Well that's all for now....just would like to say a big thank you to all who joined us last week for Helen's sketch we had some gorgeous creations hope to see you all again this week...and remember there's just one rule you must use a cute bear :0)...now that's not difficult is it!
Have a lovely Sunday,
