So, here it is the middle of July already!!  Can you believe it?!  More than half way to Christmas, and that brings us to the mid-month inspiration for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always we are an anything Christmas-related goes challenge and you have until the end of the month to join in.  Here is my inspiration for you:
I wasn't sure how this was going to look when it was finished.  As I was putting it together, the snowflakes really seemed to blend into the background a little too much.  But I really do like how it turned.  Ok, I might love it. : )
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Stamps: Verve "Peace On Earth"
Dies: PTI "Fancy Flakes" large snowflake; Sweet n' Sassy small snowflake; MFT "Blueprints 13" banner; I believe the snowflake strip is from Whimsy Stamps; someone cut it out and sent it to me. (thanks, Gail!)
