Willow Sketchie Challenge - 19th July - 'Christmas in July'

Hi Everybody,

I hope you are well???  Well I wrote the other day that I thought summer was coming well I could only get it wrong,and the rain comes.  I'll think I'll give up, so that my career as a weather forecaster gone.

Well, it's Thursday and that means it's time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge.  However, there is a new format that we are now following.  There is a Sketch, however there is also a Theme, now it's your choice as to what one or both you decide to follow. 

But firstly, I must congratulate the Winner of last weeks Challenge, and of course the Top Three, we had loads of really good entries and I really like looking at each of them. I really enjoyed your card / project.  I hope you enjoy you Voucher to spend at Willow Designs.  Congratulations.

This week our hostess is the most amazing, wonderful and beautiful Anne-Marie.  Oh!!! that's me, oh well, and I have the most fantastic Sketch for you to follow, and here it is:

But, together with the Sketch her Theme is:

'Christmas in July' 

All you have to do the Challenge, is the Card / Project needs you need to make it 'Christmas in July', it's getting nearer and I am never ready.

The Theme came at the right time, it was just as Willow Designs launched their brand new Christmas Stamps:
