Christmas in July & news of a MEGA COMPETITION!

Polka Doodles challenge time & it's Christmas in July...

This week I decided to use up some leftover pieces from all the samples we made for the Create and Craft shows.  I came up with this little festive mantelpiece, complete with mini Christmas cards!

The matelpiece is part of the 'Fireside Cheer' card components on the new Paper Boutique Vol II & I've just used the top 'wooden' pieces & decoupaged them. I used elements from patterned paper from the same CD to make the bow garland.... the stripey loops are actually the tops of candy canes!

I just love the little soldier image & how he can be found in all different sizes on the CD, these little guys came from some patterned paper leftovers...

I even managed to use a leftover soldier decoupage element on one of the mini cards... the half circle card is actually a folded soldiers head!  If you look closely you can see part of one of his eyes!!! 

Hope you can play along with us this week....and if you need some inspiration check out the other Design Team creations hereAND head on over there too to get more info on our FABULOUS COMPETITION to WIN some FANTASTIC PRIZES courtesy of LETRASET!!! You've got to be in it to win it!
