Christmas in August GDT Totally Gorjuss, Walk in the woods.

Christmas in August, is the challenge over at Totally Gorjuss this week I really enjoyed making this christmas card, I thought it would have been harder than it actually was making it when the sun was shining ( actually it was raining but its still August!), but it it went surprisingly smooth :OD (and i've decided to make more and try not to have the usual pressed rush!)
So why not do the same and join in on the chance of winning a set of stamps from
So many sweet stamps they have there, well worth a try at being lucky!

On to my card, (click on the photo's if you want to see them larger, or put your glasses on...)

I even decorated the inside of this one!
OOH My new Crop-a-dile, I LOVE IT!!

Lovley lace... It reminded me a bit of icicles.... you with me?!

I have been secretly missing my snowflake punches and enjoyed using them again :OD
(I don't try to hide the fact that I am a tad strange)
