July Challenge - Week 1 - Anything but Christmas!

It's the hottest day of the year so far today, so naturally my thoughts turned to Christmas.......   Well actually we planned this challenge a while ago so it's a bit of a co-incidence and I hope you'll forgive me when you see what the challenge is.

If like me you have lots of Christmas themed stamps that you shove in a draw until December, then this challenge is just for you!  We want to show those stamps a little more love, dig them out in the height of summer and use them to make something OTHER THAN a Christmas theme!  Now this may sound daunting, but honestly when you look at those sets in a new light you will see that you can get a lot more mileage from them all year round!

So, if you are still sitting there scratching your head thinking I've gone bananas then check out the cards Jenny and I have to share with you to see if it makes the idea any clearer.

I've used the Paper Smooches Stockings dies to make a pair of cute socks for a New Baby card.
The greeting is from Lil' Inkers Sending You

I used Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum with Milo's ABCs for my sentiment both by Lawn Fawn. 
The train track is hand drawn.

The rest of the DT will have their projects to share over the next couple of weeks but in the meantime get your craft on and link up to the challenge post when you're ready.  As long as you use products from the store then you have the chance to win a £15 store voucher!

The challenge closes at 10pm on the 22nd July.

Oh dear, I don't think I will be able to take part. I am on holiday for three weeks and whilst I (of course) have some stamps with me, I don't have any Christmas ones. I will miss this as I like taking part in the MTDS challenges. I am very interested though to see what other people make!
