Christmas in July

Summer's not hardly begun and some of us are thinking about Christmas already. How many of you are saying, 'AAAAAAGGGGGHHHHH, you've mentioned the dreaded word'. Well they are over at Stampin' For The Weekend - for theie current challenge you are provided with sketch and a theme - Christmas In July - to follow.

I don't really start thinking about christmas until after the summer but thought I would give it a go and see what I could come up. My stamped image is one that I have used a fair bit for christmas cards and fairly easy to colour in. I coloured the scarves, holly leaves and hat band with copic pens. For the mats I took out my nestabilities - rectangles and big scalloped rectangles. For the circles I used a couple of circle cuttlebug dies. The cardstock is a two-sided cardstock from Basic Grey called Eskimo Kisses Thin Ice. For the sentiment I used a peel-off.

Thanks for popping by.
