July Blog Hop Day 4 - Presents

July Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

 Featured July 9th - Lotus Blossoms
Featured July 10th - Shello

Featured July 11th - Be Virtuous
Featured July 12th - Presents

My cards using today's set all use sketches from Sketch Challenges on Splitcoast. Three more Christmas cards for my collection.  All images are coloured with Copics.  On the 2nd card I have replaced the cardinal with a poinsettia from the set called Christmas Selections as cardinals are not a bird associated with Christmas in the UK (we don't get them here) and people would wonder what it was doing on a parcel!  I have also used the same set on my last card.
Don't forget to check out the last day's post by the rest of the team and hope you have enjoyed this week's hop.
