Dreaming about Christmas...in July!

Today is the Impression Obsession Christmas in July sneek peek; it's also "Cute Card Thursday's" design theme challenge for the week, and meets the Wednesday Stamper's "Dreams" theme. The IO designers are all profiling new stamps due for release at CHA this month, and available for sale August first. Be sure to visit all their blogs for inspiration! You'll find direct links on my sidebar to your right. I created some of these cards for the Impression Obsession CHA sample board, some for my favourite local papercrafting shop (the Cutting Garden) and some to meet various blog challenges. What FUN!

Leigh Hannan images are such a joy to colour! For this one, I used this week's Cuttlebug Challenge sketch with one of Leigh Hannan's new Christmas images. I posted another one last week with the same colour scheme, have a look here.

Here are a couple for special protectors in our lives:





Aren't these ornaments just the SWEETEST things!?



I love creating cards for special little boys in my life. These snow people by Alesa Baker are just wonderful for kiddies!


This one's based on the current Papertake Weekly sketch challenge:



Finally, although I'd posted these cards previously, I just have to post them again; they're my absolute FAVOURITES of all the new winter images, and will be used for my Christmas cards this year.



Would you like to see your card featured on the Impression Obsession blog? Create a card for the challenge using Impression Obsession images and email it to Shirley. Every week, cards will be selected to showcase on the Impression Obsession blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designers! I'm off to our summer place for a few days, to enjoy the lake and the sunshine. I wish you a creative weekend!
