Christmas in July

Good morning all!

Phew, it is hot out there! Hot in here too, at work it's almost unbearable sometimes but I can't take any holidays yet so I need to soldier on for a bit longer ;) It's funny with this hot weather that our theme this time @ Fab 'n Funky is 'Christmas in July'! Have you started your Christmas cards yet? I started in January to be honest, so that I can mix Christmas projects with other types of craft. That way I don't get bored with Christmas Trees, Tinsel and Baubles :) We are sponsored by My Creative Craftroom and Dilly Beans, the latter providing us with some great images to use in our DT inspiration projects. I really like the style of these images; not too neatly drawn, just like in life ;)

* Dilly Beans Amalia's Christmas Lights, coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noirs
* Dovecraft T'Is the Season DP
* Co'ordinations Retro Mod Squad CS
* Afternoon Tea Candi
* Eline's Winterhuis Sentiment stamp
* Peel off corners from stash

It would be great if you can join us with your Crimbo projects, I'm very curious to see what you can come up with.

* The Squirrel & The Fox (Christmas in July)
* Crafty Hazelnut (Christmas Card Suitable for a Child)
* Card Mania (Christmas in July)
* Simply Create Too (Christmas in July)
* Dutch Card Lovers (Christmas in July)
* Always Something Creative (Christmas)
* Shelly's Images (Christmas in July)
* Stamp & Create (Christmas in July)
* ABC (Christmas in July)
* LEJ (Christmas in July)
