There were a couple more Christmas in July challenges that I wanted to do so this week I'll have two more cards for you to see.
This one covers 4 challenges:
Polka Doodles gave me the sketch and I rotated it a 1/4 turn
Paper Play wanted a card for a boy or man, I think the blues make this more boyish
The Cuttlebug Spot had the Christmas in July theme
Belli wanted metal tags.
I used a wonderful Dustin Pike Image that you find at Doodle Dragon and colored him with Copic's, cut him out and matted him on an oval that has been embossed with Cuttlebugs Swiss Dots folder.
The papers are Walmart from a couple of years ago but I love them!
I also embossed the border with the Snowflakes folder. I used Coredinations cardstock and sanded it to reveal the white center, I love that cardstock!!
The inside has more dp and an oval journal mat to coordinate with the one on the front.
As I mentioned on Friday I wanted to share a wonderful container that I found at Target. It was designed to hold beverages on your outdoor table but my daughter saw it and said "Mum that would work perfectly for your markers!". I had previously had the markers in hanging buckets which worked great apart from when I wanted to take them downstairs to work on a piece in the evening to be with everyone else. I used to have to get a try and balance 6 or 7 small buckets on it and make my way downstairs. Now I just grab the handle of one container and I'm fixed!
The best thing was it was originally $12.99 and I got it for 50% off so just $6.49!
I found it online too Caddy but it still full price there (I don't know why it says not available in stores either)
I think it looks like I need more Green markers, what do you think? ;)
So I can get all my Copic's, my Promarkers and Prismacolor markers in one caddy.
I hope you liked today's snowman and my new marker caddy.
