Christmas card in July #3

Hello everyone!!! Wow has it been a busy July. We just returned from our summer vacation, 14 days. We saw family in Las Vegas and then traveled to Montana, where I am from, to see my dad. I loved the weather there so cool. We also saw two cub bears but no mama....:(  good for us but sad for the bears. I like to take a picture of my kids every time we visit of my kids on this one road that leads no where but makes a perfect setting for the picture.

Ok, on to the Christmas in July card for Whimsy Stamps.  This week I used a stamp from Wee Stamps called Mr. Frosty.

I love this guy!! Colored him with my Copics and added some sequins and stickles.

Hope this inspires you!

Christmas in July is here!!

Ok, so writing this post is kind of hard when I am on summer vacation but it had to be done.  I have to admit I have never done Christmas cards in July but I am still kind of new to the card making scene. So Whimsy stamps is having Christmas in July this month.

For my first card I used a Crissy Armstrong stamp called "Jolly Santa".

I colored this cutie with my Copics and added some snow-tex by his feet for snow. Glittered up some "Ho ho ho's" and called it a day.

Hope this gets you in the Christmas spirit a little....:)   I know it's hard!!!

Have a great July 4th holiday!!
