Christmas in June

Welcome!

Just a quick post to show you the Christmas card I made for the Digistamps4Joy Christmas challenge. The freebie this month is: Santa's letter



I was planning a shaker card, but my time ran out!

Hope you like what I made - I'll add a sentiment when I decide who should get!

The Theme: Our favourite holiday.

We decided to all make cards according to our favourite holiday. 
I just love Christmas time!
Here in the Southern Hemisphere it is summer at Christmas time, but that never stops us to have many of the traditional Christmas fare.
Fruitcake and fruit mince pies are some of the things I really like.
The tree, the decorations and the gift wrapping are some of my favourite activities around that time.
But, the special message of Christmas, of a Child born unto us is what makes Christmas my real favourite time of the year.

My cards:
 
Mini Bethlehem from The Doodle Pantry

I used the pre-coloured images from the set as well as the paper.
Glitter glue makes the card sparkle!
 
 

 A little extra cutting and some piercing was needed to make the flower.
Glitter glue added a final touch!

Seeking the Star

Welcome!
 


The image King 1 - Time to go was coloured with my pencils.
I used soft pastels to create the background on the image and card.
The red crown embellishment represent the star, the king they were seeking.
