Christmas already?


Morning everyone, time for another challenge at Allsorts and Pauline has chosen the theme of 'Christmas in July'. This weeks winner will receive a £15 store voucher from Pearlywinks and there's a second prize of a super Sizzix seasonal die.

Weeks ago before we went on holiday the new AALL and Create releases arrived, but going headlong into this MS relapse which is soooooo slow going....but at least I can sit up now.... means I've made just this one using the Robin and Nuthatch along with the Poinsettias from Joy Elements. A matching inset and envie to go with it. 

As Miss Di and Sarn have also decided Christmas really must start in July, I am going to add the above to the Playground as the Poinsettias, Robin and sentiment were all stamped onto snippets and paper pieced (again our dear Kath comes to mind). But I'll be taking a good supply of ice, strawberries and my Nutribullet to ensure there are sufficient Daiquiri's on hand to keep things cool, Kath would have approved of that as well.

And following with the Christmas theme, as mentioned last week my new stamps were released on Create and Craft yesterday, Christmas Season and Christmas Magic both A5 sets available from the TV channel and Stamp Addicts, £14.99 and £16.99 mounted/unmounted respectively. Here's a few more of my samples from the show.


Have a lovely sunny weekend.

Wonderful samples Brenda! Your new stamps cover every Christmas sentiment one will ever need! Laughed at the one with the elves, brilliant joke...
Hope you will be back to normal soon. x

A delightful selection of cards Brenda - you were obviously busy before you went away - loving your robin card for the (Allsorts) challenge theme. Your new stamps look amazing.
Glad to hear that you are making progress, albeit slowly, and nice to see you putting up your own posts again.
Blessings

So usefull and something we all 'need'... so glad that I promised myself just to buy 1 christmas stamp per year and came across a stampset with matching die a few weeks ago... Hope that you will be able to do more soon! Sending positive energy your way! Hugs, Gerrina

Lots of lovely makes on this post and congrats on the release of your stamp sets.

Thanks for coming to play in the Snippets Playground with that lovely Robin card! Please come and test a few of the new cocktails up in the Treehouse - I have plenty of crushed ice available to cool drinks down! xxx

Glad you're feeling a little better even if your recovery isn't as quick as you'd like! A really fabulous selection of Christmas cards here- been trying to make some myself (a bit weird in a heat wave, but never mind)-you put me to shame...I've managed to make 3!
Your sentiment stamps are lovely, both great sets!
Take care and keep cool!

Gorgeous robin card .. I love the slightly grunge vibe with the wording and the fab inky background. Beautiful samples from your own stamp sets too .. all so different but with so much stunning detail. Are you going to be releasing any non Christmas words like you had in the past ?? I’ve currently got lots of Chrimbo sentiments (I stocked up when I won that £100 at Uniko) but I would really love some inspirational words - I’m always on the lookout for those xx

Gail said...

Haha, love the 'lack of opportunity' sentiment!
All wonderful and creative creations!
Hope you're doing well!

Ciao cara Brenda, innanzitutto Congratulazioni per avere finalmente i tuoi timbri in vendita con il brand di Stamp Addicts, sono sicura che andranno a gonfie vele. Un importante e meritatissimo evento dopo tutto quello che hai passato (e sai che non mi riferisco solo alla tua salute).
E poi questa carrellata di creazioni festive, tutte così originali e bellissime con i tuoi sentiments e i differenti designs!!! Tutte speciali e la mia preferita è quella con i due pettirossi e il romantico frame che incornicia la tua adorabile rima! Anche la card per Allsorts è molto bella nei suoi colori vibranti!
Spero che tu stia meglio e che la vita sia quasi tornata alla normalità.
Un grande abbraccio

Ellibelle said...

So many wonderful creations here Brenda, beautifully designed with these new products and the sentiments are all fabulous!

Inkyfingers said...

What a fabulous collection of designs, Brenda, and I love the addition of a gift bag - so beautiful. Glad to hear you are on the mend.
Hope you are keeping cool,
Hugs
