Christmas In July

Hello again,

This month we are celebrating Christmas in July over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, each week we will begin a new challenge. We have one lovely sponsor each week, this week we are sponsored by Ching-Chou Kuik who have  kindly given the design team two images to work with. I have used Gingerbread Man Parade to make a very quick and easy Christmas card. 

I don't know how many of our local businesses are having Yulefest this year due to Covid-19 and associated restrictions, it is usually quite popular, especially if we have snow predicted for people to enjoy a traditional hot Christmas dinner, with carols and other festivities. While we in the Southern Hemisphere are enjoying traditional hot meals, gathering around a fireplace etc., I guess that those in the Northern hemisphere are enjoying a summer style Christmas ? 

Prize:- Same two images Design Team have used

What I used:-
White 12.6 x 17.8cm card blank
