Something for Christmas

Louise was Christmas Central for our Catalogue Launch.  Here is the first of her two Christmas Cards.


The Stamp Set is “Something for Christmas” with a feature ornament from “Tree Trimmings”.  The stamp was inked up with markers “Not Quite Navy, Poppy Parade and River Rock.  The lace border punch is lovely, I don’t have it yet so it is great to have a sample card to show it off.  The cardstock colours are River Rock, Not Quite Navy, Poppy Parade and Whisper White.

Happy Stampin’

Christmas in July preparations.

I realise that the thought of Christmas Cards may send a shudder through anyone at this time of the year, so hopefully this post will not offend 🙂

Basically Christmas was a massive shocker in our house last year.  I was rostered to work and was NOT HAPPY.  We had a lovely Christmas Eve and a wonderful hour with the kidlets before I headed off to work at 6am.  Poor Pete developed a nasty gastro while I was at work, I got it within an hour of getting home that afternoon and the kids were all up with it all through the night.  We passed it on to my Mother, my Nephew, one of my Nieces and my Father-in-law 🙁 .  Anyway, Pete and I decided a lovely way to recreate the love of Christmas (and all that magnificant Christmas food) would be to hold a Christmas in July Celebration. Hopefully by then our family would have forgiven us too…

Here is the invite that I recently sent out:

As you can see I have once again used the idea of the little pull out invite as I did with Zane’s invite here

Once they pull out the invite they will see that I have added a tag, the only requirement of the event is that each adult guest brings along a small secret santa gift, while I was tempted to write my name on everyones tag I have in fact played nice 🙂

(yes family, I did white out the name on the tag, wouldn’t want to give you any clues).

Anyway, it is going to be a lovely night, I need to start getting more organised with my table decorations – I’ll be sure to post more about it as the time goes along.

Happy Stampin’
