X-mas in July

This year I had promised myself to start early with my Christmas cards, and in June I managed to do the first two 😆 , but since then, I’ve been very unproductive. July was a busy month at work, and also the wonderful weather didn’t exactly put me in the mood for making Christmas cards…but hey I’m not complaining. 😉 Anyway, yesterday I was browsing Lili of the Vally’s Inspiration Blog and as they have just released some new Christmas stamps (OMG; they are so adorable; I just had to order some :-D),there were plenty of sample cards by the DT members, so I got inspired and decided to make one myself.

I used another of the gorgeous gnome images from Whiff of Joy, and followed their sketch, so that I could join in with their challenge. I also found the following Challenges that I could take part in;
