Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Christmas in July!

Hi Everyone!! Yay it's the school holidays which means more time for crafting!! I am aiming to do 6 weeks of challenge cards seeing as I'll be at home a lot of the time. I love the school holidays just relaxing at home with my little man!! Well actually he's still at school until Tuesday but I think I'm in the mood already!!

So this morning I had an email from Pollycraft as they have some fab offer on today... I snapped up the penguins which Paula had on offer and I can't wait to get them printed off!! But as I need Mr Becky's help with that I decided to use an image I had pre-printed for their challenge this week which is Christmas in July! I just love Christmas and I love Maurice and so I really enjoyed making this card!!

I had planned on making a few cards this afternoon but I kind of got carried away with this one and it took a good few hours to complete (I think I must be a bit rusty too!!) So I used a 5" x 5" matt as the main area of the card but popped it onto an A6 card to make the easel as I have loads of A6 cards to use up!! I have made Maurice into a boinger which is great as his googly eyes wiggle about!!

The holly I have made myself using a Papermania template and lots of card candy of course!!

And speaking of Dylan... I made his this to give to his teacher using my new toy the Cricut...

I am loving the Cricut and have been making loads of personalised cards and bits and bobs!!

So that's it from me... hopefully I'll be back soon with some more challenge cards!!

Thanks for reading Becky xx
