Phew!!!! Christmas in July!!!

There's lots of Christmas in July challenges around but hey it's doesn't feel like Christmas does it?

There are so many images to choose from for this theme that it was difficult to know where to begin. I spotted 'Sweet' on Totally Gorguss  http://totallygorjuss.blogspot.com.es/search/label/Challenge%20192%20-%20sweet and that's when I decided to go for Janne Sheen's House Mouse triple CD with the mice having a great time decorating the Gingerbread House. Now what could be 'sweeter' than a Gingerbread House covered with yummy sweets and it's Christmassy......so two themes in one!!


I went for simplicity as there's a lot going on in this image. To break the squareness up the corners have been cut and reversed to give the appearance of turned over corners. A simple two word greeting 'Christmas Wishes' from the same CD. The star gems were added and lots of glittery platinum stickles finished it off!!
