Christmas in July

Welcome sundae bloggers and hopefully another glorious day...well it just now being Friday as it's another scheduled one. Only one more weekend to work and then I'm on holiday....yay!!

The challenge this week over at Paper Sundaes...if you've not already guessed it..."Christmas in July".

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Simon Says Stamp...


who are giving one lucky winner a $15 gift certificate.

For my card I have used papers from Fancy Pants - Hot Chocolate collection...(had to buy them Elaine, they were tempting me for too long)....they are so yummy although I have only used a couple for this card. The stamp is Penelope from CC Designs and she has been coloured with copics. Pop over and see what the other girls have!!
