Sooooo Merry Christmas in July?
Its Monday so its Stamp Fairy Challenge Day but this weeks challenge is bitter sweet for me!
As its now time for me to go…. I Don’t want to leave but I have been on the Design team for a whole year and its been AWESOME!

Christmas in July - Make an Easel Card using a Stamp Fairy Holiday image!
Yes that is right to qualify for prizes you need to use a Stamp Fairy Image, there are loads of awesome Christmas holiday images you can find them HERE
Here is my card…
I decided to have a go with a monochrome easel as I had these yummi vintage core colour and a shimmer core colour card and once I had printed the Cute Santa and his pal I thought Hmmmm browns maybe so started to look for papers and well here's what happened.
The Lovely Circle Sentiment is from my good friend and Blog pal Annette and if you go to her blog she has lots of lovely Freebie sentiments you can use! Become a follower there as she often has new ones to offer and her cards and lovely and inspiring too!
