Christmas in August!

Today's Stamp With Us challenge is all about Christmas! Nothing like getting ahead, hey?! Here's my effort:

I didn't capture it in the photo but there's stickles dotted over the scene, very sparkly and priddy IRL!

Recipe: (All Stampin Up unless stated)

Stamps - Silent Night
Ink - Basic Black/Always Artichoke/Close To Cocoa/Old Olive/So Saffron
Card - Very Vanilla/Night of Navy/Always Artichoke
Other - silver brads/Hodgepodge/silver cord/Stickles(Ranger)

I've also just posted this baby card (along with all details) over on A Passion for Papertrey:

Thanks for visiting today:)

Wonderful cards, Kate. :) I guess, I wouldn´t be able to finish a christmas card these days. It´s too warm and sunny to think about the cold times that will come. But you really did a good job, amazing.
The baby card is so cute, love the stitching and the paper piecing.

Hugs, Tina
