Christmas in July

Hello - well July is almost over and that means summer is half way over too - I am sad that summer is going by so quickly - I am really enjoying the hot sunny weather.  Now having said all of that - you may wonder why I am making a Christmas card? - I wouldn't be doing this on my own but the scrapbooking store I design for had asked me to make a Christmas card.  I was a bit reluctant at first but then decided to take it on as a fun challenge.  I have to admit it is not easy to make a Christmas card in the summer somehow it all just doesn't come together as well.  I did struggle with this card and I have to admit it is not one of my more favorites but maybe it is because my creative mind isn't tuned in yet to winter/cold and Christmas - anyways it was still fun to be in my craft room once again and create.  I am not sure which Tilda this is or which Christmas set she belongs to but she is adorable!  I paper pieced her hat, scarf and boots and then colored the rest of her with copics.  I used a Sizzix die to cut the tree in behind and added glitter and star brads. I also used my circuit machine to cut out the lamp post in the background.  I added some pretty prima flowers and used my Memory Box die to add some black swirls behind the flowers and added some ribbon and a Whimsy sentiment stamp.  That pretty much sums up this card - I kind of went a bit overboard on it as far as embellishing but sometimes it is hard to know when to stop - lol!!  Hope you are all having a wonderful relaxing Sunday where-ever that may be.

Your stamping friend, Debbie
