Simon Says Stamp Christmas in July challenge

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. The weather here has been gorgeous and I am trying to enjoy it cause winter will be here before we know it. And you guys know what that means...Christmas cards! Yikes! Including this one I have two made. Yep, that is it. Our challenge this week at Paper Sundaes this week is Christmas in July and is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.


This image is by CC Designs and is called Darby and Pudge except I don't have pudge on here. He is a little bird and is all colored up and sitting on my desk but I just couldn't make him fit in where I was happy with the look. I have some chipboard snowflakes I colored with viva decor metallic paste, some christmas trim (thanks Patty!) and a sentiment from lotv that I edged with stickles. I added some glamour dust to the trim on her clothes too, I love that stuff, such sparkle! Ok, time to get started on your Christmas cards and enter for a chance to win from Simon Says Stamp. Oh, I am also going to enter this into the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

Amanda, this is wonderful! I absolutely love it, especially your colouring! We've barely had any decent weather, but at least we managed to break 70 yesterday! So it killed me to think about winter right now... need a summer first!
