Christmas in August over at Lili's Little Fairies!

We've gone all 'HoHoHo' over at the Fairies this week and are encouraging you to make a start on those Christmas cards. I confess to buying the Hunkydory Blockbuster on Create and Craft a few weeks ago because I just can't see me getting time to make lots of handcoloured lovingly crafted cards this year!! This, however, was a great opportunity to make a special card for someone close!
I really love these Nitwit papers - I'm a big fan of aqua for Christmas cards! I've gone with lovely James the bear and a couple of LOTV sentiments. The tattered poinsettia is the Tim Holtz die from Sizzix and I've embossed  the white card with the cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I've also used the LaLa Land Heart Banner die (again).
I've used the Spellbinders Grand Decorative circles and Grand circle dies to make the card base. I've made lots of easels using these and the Grand Decorative Ovals but they're just super pretty :D
I coloured this before the bump got mahoosive!

Hope that you get the chance to join us this week. Big hugs, Jayne xx
