Doesn't Everyone Celebrate Christmas In July Like This?

Hi there bloggers, back again with yet another challenge entry.  This time it is for All That Scraps Magnolia Blog challenge # 5 themed "Winter Where You Live"  well I don't know about the rest of the world, but for us having lived overseas when I was younger, we still celebrate Christmas in July.  It is the only time we can have a "European" type of Christmas as during December the weather is too hot.  You know the kind where you sing carols around the fire and drink mulled wine or hot buttered rum and eggnog and eat warm Christmas pudding with brandied custard....YUMMMMM!! Anyway, this is my entry:

For this card, I made my own shadow box out of chipboard.  The papers used are from Kaiser's "Tis The Season" collection.  I have also stamped and embossed the papers including the sentiment using various Darkroom Door stamps.  The tree, fireplace, fire, ornaments and Tilda stamp are all from Magnolia and all have been coloured using copic ciao markers before applying Kindy Glitz in "Red and Antique Silver".  I hope you like it.  Ciao for now.

Hi there....
I just wanted to let you know, that after having translated the text of the Tim Holtz dies, I can understand why you thought that I'd already got them... :-)... Sometimes the translation goes a bit wonky...
