XMAS in July

Wow...I can't believe it is the end of July already.  Time is flying by.  I also can't believe I have posted 3 cards in 3 days!!!  I wish I could do that more but these days I am so busy. 

It's Tuesday so that means it is time for the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge!  This weeks theme is easy!  It is Christmas in July!!  The only requirement is that you use Basic Grey paper.  I love the colors in this paper pack.  A couple of weeks ago I got together with some friends to stamp and I asked them to bring XMAS stamps so I could play with something new for this challenge.  I don't remember if I borrowed this from Kristen or Pia but he is just so adorable I had to use him for this challenge.

The other wonderful challenges this meets are:

Christmas Cards all Year Round - Anything Goes - That's easy!!!!


Rosie D's - All Creatures great and small - This mouse is a little creature and I think he is so cute!!

Stamptacular - XMAS in July - Yes it is that time of year where I need to plan out my XMAS card or they will never get done.  

Aud Sentiments - Choose your own XMAS sentiment - Okay, mine is corny but...... I thought he is running around letting people know to be prepared!

Stamping for the weekend - 2 DP's, 2 Flowers, 1 ribbon. - This was a great recipe.  Since I layered the flowers I counted each as 1.  I hope that is okay.

Fun with Shapes - Sketch - I didn't know how this sketch would work before I started with this but I love it!!!!   It was a perfect choice IMHO.


The Creative Cottage - Touchy Feely - I used glitter on his hat and both Flower Soft and Glass on the snow.  These are all touchy feely things to me.

Penny's Paper - Recipe - 1 Ribbon, 2 DP's , 3 embellishments - I have 1 ribbon, 2 DP's, and my 3 embellishments are the Flowers, Gold dots, and the flower soft.

Sentimental Sundays - It's all fun and games - You need to make a funny card.  I think my saying is corny enough to make people laugh.

Thanks for stopping by.  Thanks to everyone who leaves comments.  They really make my day.
