Christmas in September

 Good morning, for this fortnight's challenge at Sweet Stampin' we want to see your Christmas -themed will be here before you know it! Already the shops here are full of Christmas decorations etc, they'll be playing carols next....

I used my favourite stamp from last year to make my card, I think this snowy tree from Mama Elephant is beautiful and it's large enough to fill a card. This one was quick and simple to make, I stamped the tree, masked it and sponged the sky and some shadows on the snow, flicked the white ink around for snow- then stamped the sentiment, one that came with the set. 

Lots of lovely inspiration over at Sweet Stampin', so do hop over for a look! Then why not play along?  If you're planning to make your own Christmas cards and haven't started yet now would be good time to start!!

Thanks for visiting
