Hi and a Happy Monday to y'all!
If you've been anywhere on the challenge blogs this month you'll have seen many have the "Christmas in July" theme.
Well I was holding of doing any Christmas stuff yet as it's not very condusive weather here but I can't wait another longer and so I'll be doing Christmas cards for you to see this week!
I have at least 4 blogs on my list with the same theme so I'll be fixed for links this week :)
Today's card works for:
Three Clovers - Christmas in July (and Hanukkah too!)
Stamp with Fun - Sketch
Just Magnolia - Buttons
Dawn McVey Favorite Things - Color combo, Moss/Celery, Cream, Bright Pink and Dark Red
I know you've seen me use this Tilda before as she is one of my very favorite ones to color. But she comes from the Holiday 2008 collection and this is the first time I've used ger on a Holiday card! She is called Well Dressed Tilda and I can't find her any where to link to but I'm sure Diana at Magnolia-licious could order her for you.
She is colored with Copic's and is sitting in a Nestie oval.
The dp are KI Memories (the striped background) and some from a Christmas stack I got at Walmart (I shop for paper everywhere! LOL)
I added Making Memories Glittered Chipboard flowers and topped them with Paper Studio buttons.
I used the Apron Lace border punch on the angle and added tiny Jesse James buttons. The ribbon is the $1 spot from last year at Michaels. The sentiment is Tiny Tales Vellum by My Minds Eye.
The inside is more KI paper and another cute Tilda! I added an additional Paper Studio sentiment.
I just wanted to show a close up of my favorite Tilda.
Be sure to check back all week for more Christmas cards, if I get working on them of course!
And finally I have some exciting news that I'm bursting to tell but you'll have to checking back to see what it is! LOL
