Wednesday, 29 June 2011 JUNE...!?!?!?!

Yes folks, we are having a Christmas in June challenge over at FOR FUN this week!! I must say, I struggle to get my head around Christmas at this time of year, especially when all I am thinking about is whether we'll get some warmth or sun, cos you kinda expect it at this time of year don't you?! Of course the British weather is none too predictable, so each day is a surprise waiting to happen!

Luckily, we have one of my all-time favourite sponsors this's Michelle Perkett....YAY!
I just LOVE her images, and we were so lucky to get the chance to work with them this week; I have been so busy of late, I haven't had time to enter Michelle's weekly challenge which I have been so disappointed about, so this has helped make up for that! Here's my card:
It's a teepee card! I thought it was the perfect shape for a christmas tree! The wonderful image is of course one of Michelle's and is called Christmas Blessings. You can find her and loads of other gorgeous images in Michelle's Etsy shop.

 As the card is 3-sided I printed and coloured the image 3 times, one for each side. I gave each one different coloured hair.
The DPs are Dovecraft from my stash....bought when I first started cardmaking, so I am being a good girl and using up some of my old stash!!!
I made a sentiment for each side too, they read 'Blessings,' 'Joy,' and 'Faith.' I added a few gems to finish the card....I wanted to keep it fairly CAS.
I was asked if it is possible to post these cards, and the answer is....YES! You can use either a velcro 'dot' to fasten it or a ribbon which can be untied so that it will fold flat to fit into an envelope :)
Don't forget to go over to the FOR FUN BLOG and check out the rest of the DT samples.....and of course they would be thrilled if you had time to leave them some love too!

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by!
