Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 14

This weeks challenge is "Christmas in July"!

Appropriate since I was considering starting the mammoth task of making Chrimbo cards, its just that its sooooo hot at the moment I was having problems finding the inspiration to get going!

Well here's something blue and frosty in an attempt to cool us all down, a wall hanging for the 12 days of Christmas.

Had a wonderful time making this! Lots of colouring in, spritzing with glimmer mists and embossing!

Papers used, I think are from Papermania that I had left over from last year, stamps are Penny Black, 12 days of Christmas, snowflake stamp, I think is a Papermania one!

Sorry about all the pictures but 12 days is pretty long!

Hi Sue,

LOVE all the spritzing...I have some of the glimmer mists and have never used them on a "real" project before...thanks for reminding me that I have them. Maybe I'll get them out and play this week!

Love your color choice and fabulous idea!

Thanks for playing along with us this week at Stamptacular!

Wow! What an awesome project! I especially love the front with all the deep color layering. I think it's funny that you chose snowflakes and mentioned being so hot. Hope that subconsciously that made you feel cool. Thanks for joining in our challenge
