Christmas in July!

It has been so cold here today, it feels like I'm at the Nth Pole, LOL! It actually wasn't too bad a day as it was lovely and sunny, but once the sun went down it was back to freezing again!

My card today is for Annabelle Stamps 'Say It In......Red, Cream and Chocolate' challenge. I immediately thought that combo would be ideal for a Christmas card, so here's my first Chrismas card for the year!



Nothing fancy with the card, it's pretty straightforward and quick, although my fingers were so cold I had trouble tying the ribbon!

Stamps: Darkroom Door
Cardstock: Stampin' Up
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia, TH Fired Brick Distress Ink
Other: SU ribbon, Kaisercraft pearls, SEI button.

Hope you're having a great day in your part of the world!

LOL, I so know what you mean about trying to tie ribbons with numb fingers! Another gorgeous creation, sorry I won't get to catch up with you at the show, I'll be thinking of you, and congrats on winning the C&Q ticket! :)
