It's Christmas in July over at Elisabeth Bells World

There are only 3 more days left to enter The Digi Bells GDT Call.
It ends on July 28th....

The Theme for that is "Summer"


Another Christmas post - This must be the week of "Holiday" creations for me.  But what I feel is Crazy.....  It's already July 25th.  Where has this year gone?  Time is flying by, and I really don't want it to. 

My little Sweet Pea is already almost 8 months old, my son has graduated High School, and time is zipping right by.  Which brings me to my post today....   Did you know that there are only 152 more days until Christmas?  WOW - Talk about crazy.  I should probably start thinking about what sales I can find on things, I tell myself to shop early every year, but I always forget.  This is the perfect reminder! 

The challenge this month over at Elisabeth Bells World Challenge Blog is obviously "Christmas in July"  soooooo, using that theme, I've created a Christmas card, using "Twas The Night Before Christmas" stamp that was once released by Belles 'n Whistles.  I just can't let my Belles 'n Whistles stamps collect any dust, I Love using them.  This darling stamp is no exception.
 I dug into my holiday papers, (Scraps to be exact)... and found something suitable for this gorgeous image.  I believe the holly leaf paper is from Bo Bunny.  I've used Copics for coloring my image.  The circle is stamped using Stampin' Up's "Certainly Celery" ink. 
I've created my own flower, and believe it or not, this flower was created out of my Martha Stewart rose leaf punch.  Who knew you could make a poinsettia out of rose leaves?  ha ha..  I've also created my sentiment in Adobe photoshop. 
I love it when I am able to put something together using everything from scraps and stash.  Talk about recycling!
