Penny's #287: Christmas in July

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's week is going well! So many Christmas in July challenges going on, and it is going to be a heat index of 100F here today! LOL, not feeling super Christmassy, I gotta say....

But that's ok, because we love our crafting, and if it means sitting in the AC and thinking Christmas thoughts, hey...whatever works! ;) So let's get on with the new challenge this week over at Penny's Challenge!  This week's sponsors are Star Stampz and The Stamping Boutique. As always, they are offering a wonderful prize to lucky stampers!


Here is my project, featuring "Mail Girl" from TSB! I really like this sweetie, that bold oval border is excellent, and I love a chance to add sparkly snow to things!!


My little one is colored up with Copics, and all the furry parts were done with white Sparkly Fluff and a Quickie Glue Pen. I added Stardust Stickles to the snowflakes and the edge of the snow, along with the edge of my "cloud" snow border at the base. Dies from Lawn Fawn and Gina Marie. Paper from DCVW box 'o scraps, lol. 

Here's where I tried to give a better view of the fluff and sparkle:




I'm entering this into Paper ala Mode's Christmas in July this week at Outlawz.

This is really cute. We're having a Christmas in July challenge at Paper Ala Mode, and I have to say making Christmas cards was a lot more fun than being out in this heat! You should enter your card in our challenge!
