Christmas cards all year round

I'm thrilled to say that I was invited to join the team on Christmas cards all year round. Those who regular visit my blog will know that I make loads of Christmas cards throughout the year, so I'm more than happy to join the team. Please go over to Christmas cards all year round and see the lovely festive crafting done by the rest of the team - many of them, like me, are new this month, so please give them a welcome.

So these are my cards for the July challenge on CCAYR: it's all about Santa.

I've used card and elements from last year's Hunkydory Christmas kit  (yes, still using it up!) with the addition of some tartan ribbon on the first one. The card blanks are A5 opening landscape - thought they would make a change.

These are also for:

Facebook A card a day
Card mania 24: Christmas in July
Crafty ribbons 50: anything goes with ribbon (first card)
Left of center 9: use a sentiment on the front
A random Thursday 3: anything goes
One stitch at a time 170: anything goes
Platypus creek 35: anything goes
Hiding in my craftroom 104: freestyle
Simon says: anything goes
Creative inspirations 220: anything goes + option of ribbon (first card)
