Christmas in July!

Hello to all my Friends,

Well, it's that time again to celebrate Friday with a brand new challenge! This week our theme is "Christmas in July"  Seems funny to be making a Christmas card when the temperatures are at over 100 degrees farheinheit.  I will say it is certainly refreshing!!  So dig out those festive papers and get crafting!!  Here is my card to help you get started!

This little cutie is by this month's sponsor 'Dilly Bean Stamps'. You can find their shop here.  The papers are by Bo Bunny and the sentiment has been wet embossed and is by Close to my Heart.  I used a SB lacey die to mat the image on and a MS border punch behind it. I added some liquid glass to the beak and feet and some stickles to the heart.  The pompom and the fur on the hat was given some dimension with some white flock.  Lastly, I punched out some holly with some gems and added bells to ring in the season!

Be sure to stop by and join us for the refreshing change and celebrate Christmas in July over at the Outlawz Copic Challenge Group.

Thanks for stopping by!!
