Christmas in July

I have been busy baking and making for Christmas in July tomorrow. I have baked a boiled pineapple fruit cake, it sure makes the kitchen smell divine. Instead of bon-bons for each guest this is what I have made for them. They are called "sour cream" containers, and I must thank Jayne for showing how to make them. Inside I have placed a couple of "fun" novelties from $2 shop and a chocolate. How cute and they match the serviette rings I made earlier. I have used Leaf Prints (104279) standard wheel and Wishing You (110245) stamp set from mini catalogue. Have a great weekend. Images: 1990-2007 © Stampin' Up! ® Artwork: Margaret L Crawford

Old Wall layers

This photograph shows detail of an old wall in Zhouzhuang Water Town, about 2 hours out of Shanghai, China. It is strangely evocative and I love the layers of old paper - advertising or propaganda? The stamp set is Ancient Asia (108736) and I have used a paper distressing tool to further suggest layers on this layout.
