Make Believe it's Christmas in July!

Good Morning Everyone, 
What a fabulous sunny weekend. We had lovely blue skies for the school fair on Saturday and I even managed to sell one or two cards.
All this sunshine and I'm making Christmas cards! I've only just bought this Penny Black stamp, it's called 'Make- believe'.
I've coloured them with my promarkers and the background papers are from Nit Wits.
I've used a Marianne Creatables tree die, Marianne Creatables snowflake die and MB precious stars die.
The ribbon and gems are from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Christmas in July
Penny Black and More - Dies and Punches
CSAYL - Seeing Stars
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - For a Child
Allsorts Challenge - Favourite things (promarkers and snowflake die)
Sweet Stampin Christmas - Cute, cuddly and non trad colours

Thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog today and for all your lovely comments
