Christmas Card in June

It's been raining here all day, where did the sun go? I know it's good for the garden but I would prefer it, if it didn't rain at the weekend :)
I couldn't believe it when I saw the "C" word over on the Daring Cardmakers this week. I love christmas but as i'm a disorganised person I only end up making a few christmas cards as I have run out of time. For you chance to win a paper pad from Crafty Emmas Store the theme this week is:
Father Christmas
I thought this would be a quick card to make but it has taken me most of the day!! I love these papers they are from Nitwit - Joyful Hearts

I would also like to enter this into: Crafty Hazelnuts Chrismas Challenge - to use buttons on your card Roses, Double Layer Daisies, Gingham Bias Binding, Bakers Twine - Creative Treasures Enjoy what's left of the weekend x

Tomic - Birthday Card

Another week has whizzed by and it's Friday, yippeeeee. Let's hope we see some sunshine for the weekend.
It is the grand opening of the new challenge blog
TOMIC = The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge blog! The first theme is MAKE A BIRTHDAY PROJECT and for the occasion Magnolia is offering you a chance to win a big secret prize so come and play with us! This card is much prettier in real life :), the papers are gorgeous, they are from the First Edition Paper Pads - Up Up & Away, lot of sparkly bits on the papers, very strokable!!
I haven't inked this gorgeous Magnolia up for a very long time, she is one of my all time favourites. Over the next few weeks, I am going to stamp every single stamp I have into a book so at a glance I can remember what stamps I have got, I can't remember half of them!!
