Christmas in July!!

My first Christmas card of 2010! Well, first one I've made so far anyway! Mum was doing some stamping, so I got her to do some for me too (she's so much better at it)! Here's a Whimsy stamp from the Snickerdoodle kids collection that I won on their blog hop. It's called Sledding with Marty and Max, and I think it will be a great card for one of the boys in the family!!

I've used two pieces of snowflake paper from a magazine freebie pack, and I've added some glitter (glamour dust mixed with blue) for the snow on the ground, in absence of Polar white Flowersoft (which has now been ordered). A few sequins, gems and a bit of ribbon to embellish! Obviously the image is coloured with Promarkers!

Challenges I'm entering:
Cards For Men #14 - Christmas in July
Paperplay Challenge #26 - Card for child/Teenager
Fussy & Fancy Friday #14 - Christmas in July
Stamp Something - Colours of your Flag (Red/White/Blue)
Alice In Wonderland #20 - Red, White & Blue
