FTH July Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on this month's From the Heart Stamps blog hop.

Our theme this month is "Christmas in July"



As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry.
One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTH store for yourself and an image of choice for a friend.
And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $15 gift voucher to the store!

If you have arrived here from the lovely Imke, you are in the right place, if not, why don’t you start at the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything. The full hop list is there too.

Here is my card using Birdbrain Winter Scarf...


What a great image, I can see this Birdbrain on a Dr Who/Tom Baker style card in my not too distant future :)
The patterned papers are all from the same set by Bazzill Basics, called Nordic Pines.
The gold vellum snowflake is actually cut from Marianne Designs 'Hearts' die set. Then I fixed it to the card with a silver snowflake brad in its centre.
I handcut the notched flags at the bottom.
The sentiment is one of FOUR that you get with this fab image.

Challenges entered:
Christmas Card Challenges - anything goes
Papertake Weekly - anything goes (option: Christmas)
