All About Santa CCAYR July Challenge!

Hello Everyone, and I hope this Monday has been good to you whatever you have been doing.
Our weather hasn't been too bad and a least the rain has held off and Ive got a full whirligig of washing out, hopefully dried by now.

Thanks to all who left comments on my last post, I'm slowly getting around all of yours, and from what I've seen so far there are some wonderful creations out there.

I can now share with you that I have have been asked onto the DT for Christmas Cards All Year Round, I could hardly believe it when Tracey contacted me and invited me to join.  I thought as it is a monthly blog and it is only to December, it was quite doable for me.  I really don't think I could manage the card load that some of girls do, so thinking that it would be good experience, I thought I  would give it a go.
Now I'm not all that sure if I'm setting this up correctly, but here is the link to CCAYR Challenge Blog;
http://christmascardsallyearround.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/july-challenge.html  and here is my card;
The title of the July Challenge is All About Santa, and should include anything that is associated with Santa-- reindeer, presents, elves, etc.  that should give you lots of scope, for however you interpret it.
There are lots of  inspirational cards made by the other DT on the challenge blog, so have a pop in, a look and come and join in the fun.

I've used for my card;
Giordano Decoupage image from Joanna Sheen
LOTV Frosty Christmas Papers
Kraft card blank
LC Sentiment
MB Frosty Border
Embellishment Attic Snow
Star Dust Stickles
Blue Gems from Papermania

I hope my card will offer you inspiration

Thanks for looking, Kate x
