Christmas In July SDC 157

Gez has chosen the theme for the Stampotique Challenge this week and she has certainly challenge us as it's Christmas in July!!!!
Now those of you who know me will know that I do not make cards so I chickened out a little bit on this one and did a seasonal page in my journal using non christmas stamps. My Idea came from the page that I used as my background under the layer of gesso. It's from a book of christmas carols and it's the Three Kings, I think these 3 little guys work perfectly as my kings and I love the quote by Jo Capper-Sandon.

These are Gez's thoughts behind her challenge.

Hi Gez here, I am delighted to be your hostess for this weeks challenge.

It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas right?!! ;-) I thought it would be nice for us to spread a wave of festive cheer throughout Blogland!

Every year I set out with good intentions and imagine a great big stack of handmade Christmas cards all ready to send out nice and early in December, in reality I think it's happened once! So, lets do it together! Dig deep and crack open the Christmas stash box early!!

This is a fun challenge, I hope you enjoy it too!

The Design Team have lots of creative inspiration to get your festive mojo ringing! Happy creating!

I used the following Stamps

The full details of the Challenge for the month can be seen HERE.

Stampotique Rubber Stamps are available to buy from Stampotique originals .

I hope you get a chance to join in this week, Carol x

I love your interpretation of this challenge, Carol! (My submission is slightly askew, too!) Your "Three Kings" are absolutely awesome; and the crown, the perfect embellishment! Well done and so creative!
