Thinking ahead to winter

Strange as it sometimes seems, this is the time of year when we crafters have to start thinking of winter and all that comes with it - Christmas cards, craft fairs, teacher gifts etc, etc. Personaly I always plan to be making Christmas cards throughout the year but inevitably it gets to halfway through the summer and I realise that I've done nothing and I wish that I'd had a little more disipline back in January, February, March etc!! This year is no different and because I've been concentrating so much on making my sock monkeys this card is the first Christmas related thing I've produced - and yes I know it's only July but this is where it all starts - in fact as soon as school goes back in the middle of August (at least in Scotland) that's when I have to go into full-time Christmads mode :o)

Today's card is for the new Cardmadfairy's Digi Days challenge which, of course, is themed Christmas in July. I have used my digi Imogen in the wings which can be found over here, The image was coloured with Promarkers, papers, Robin & tag are from My Mind's Eye and die cuts are Memory Box
