Phindy's Place Friday Challenge #19 - "Christmas in Summer"

 Happy Friday Everyone.....
Here we are already on our 20th Phindy's Challenge.  The weeks just keep flying by, before you know it, the snow will start to fall, and Christmas will be upon us.  So this weeks challenge over at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog, is called "Christmas In Summer" 

So it's time to get out those Christmas papers, and start coloring.... I found that it helps to hum Christmas carols while coloring.. ha ha...

I actually used a "Spring" image for my Christmas card, but who says she has to be used for Spring?  Depends on what colors you color her, right?  You know what?  I never get tired of the many different ways to color "Kulla" in her ummmm.... Not so Spring Dress.... lol

I tried a paper folding technique for the Christmas tree, and had lots of fun with that, and even drew my own border along the edge of my image.  I guess I was just in a doodling kind of mood.  That's what happens when you have some time to relax, and spend a couple weeks off from work.  I have to say, I've been completely enjoying my time off, and getting lots and lots of things colored, and only SOME things actually put together... but hey, that's the way it goes sometimes... LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by today  - can't wait to see what Christmas cards you will all create!
