Reminder Time for Challenge #52

It's reminder time here at Christmas Kickstart as we've reached the middle of the month.

Our elf for July is my brilliant crafting bud, Gail from Crafty Nomad, and we're playing:

Challenge #52 - Woolly or Fluffy or Furry!

Here's another chance to see Gail's card.

You can find all the details for this mini-masterpiece by visiting her blog.

Here's my inspired by card. I was so taken by Gail's use of green. My original plan was to copy the kitty and tree, but it just didn't work as a design as the tree dominated the whole card and looked really dull. I started again, added a second kitten and 'bingo', I liked the design. The green bulb from Gail's card appears in my card too!

I really wanted to try my hand at Gail's green background. Gail used green Archival Ink, but I had to opt for Distress Ink instead. In all honesty, it looks nowhere near as good as Gail's base layer, but I quite like how it turned out. I used linen card and the inking really accentuated the linen weave. I just wish I'd managed to find a more festive green ink in my stash.

Rudolph has done us proud with his Random Raffle prize!

July is a great time to start your Christmas cards, so we very much hope you'll come and play along!
