Hi There Crafters!

It's Wednesday, and that means IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE! at The Paper Shelter!  Whether you're celebrating a birthday this week, or working on your Christmas cards, or maybe it's an Anniversary in your family, ANY celebration will do!

Where I live, Christmas is HOT!  It's all about sun, sand and beaches.  So I decided to make a Christmas card using a Summer scene, using Enjoy The Summer, which I have coloured with markers.  I've given Summer Santa a little pompom on his hat, to complete the image.

My paper is from the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection.  I typed up the curvy sentiment (tedious task) and cut it out using a Spellbinders die.  The reindeer and gifts are Jolee's.  The ribbon with a little bell attached was originally attached to a Lindt chocolate box- yes... there are SO many reasons to eat chocolate!  The gem swirls are Want 2 Scrap.

As usual, we have a fantastic prize from The Paper Shelter up for grabs!

You could win a $30 gift voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product (black & white image, pre-coloured image or paper), or 3 digi images of your choice if you've used another brand.    You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

Looking forward to seeing what you're celebrating this week!

Thanks so much for popping in for a look!

  5. This is too cute! Christmas on the beach - makes me a little bit homesick. All those Christmases spent along the Durban coast at one beach or the other. Great card design and beautiful colouring.
    Have a great day.
