Christmas in July!

Hi all,

I am teaming up with an amazing artist called Patience Brewster today to talk about Christmas in July and how I plan on celebrating it this July. We all know in the crafting world that Christmas crafting starts in July so I was already in Christmas crafting mode! When I was looking on the Patience Brewster site at their Christmas ornaments I saw one that instantly inspired me to create a card. This adorable Dash Away Santa ornament made me think of where would Santa go after he was finished delivering all those presents?

So I coloured him a cute gingerbread house to come home to rest in when he was done! All the colours in the card were inspired by the ornament, they are such perfect Christmas colours, really warm and welcoming too. You can see a full tutorial here on how I created this card.

You can see a close up of the house. I love how the glittery snow looks so fluffy!

They are having an AMAZING competition over at Patience Brewster that you really need to check out, the prize is just so fantastic! You can find it HERE. Have you started your Christmas crafting yet, in preparation for the seasonal rush? Or are you still enjoying summer for the moment?

Happy crafting and happy Christmas in July!
