Christmas in July

I have to say I hate the idea of Christmas in July (not because I am nasty and don't like festivities) but because it reminds me that Christmas will be here before we know it and that I better get my butt into gear and start shopping and making my cards. Sometimes I wonder if 6 months is quite enough time to get over the fear of seeing a Christmas stamp, LOL!

Anyhow this week at Lil Lolita Boutique Kel gave us the challenge of making a Christmas card and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. As the Lolita's are quirky and not Christmas stamps it was fun to use them in this manner.

I have used this weeks sketch over at Sketch Saturday:

The hat I have used on Lylah is one that I picked up last year from Heavenscent Crafts. Deb who had a huge range of stamps decided that she wanted to be able to use her favorite stamps for Christmas cards (or not have to buy Christmas stamps at all) and designed the hat and had it made up. I don't think she has any left though. It fits on so many types of stamps including Magnolias and of course as you can see the Lolita's.

Be sure to pop by the blog and check our every one's work this week you will not be disappointed and please come and join in this week and show us how you can make our Lolita's christmassie. Don't forget we are now giving away a stamp each week now to our winner so if you entered last week check to see if it was you.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo
