Christmas in July - CGC Challenge #81

Hello crafting friends. Welcome back, I really appreciate your visit.

Challenge #81 ~ Christmas in July

What a wonderful way to start working on your Christmas card stash.  Time for mailing out those cards will be here before you know it.  And isn't this challenge just perfect for my Christmas in July celebration that I'm having during this month.  If you missed it, you can read all the details on this post.

Our wonderful sponsors this week are:

Prize: 2 Digital Images

Prize: 3 Digital Images

Prize: 7 Digital Images

For my card this week,  I used an image from Bugaboo Stamps, called Christmas Teddy Cocoa.  It really is hard to imagine sitting by the fire drinking hot cocoa when our temperatures are 98 - 100 degrees F right now.  Sitting by the pool with a coconut frou-frou drink sounds much more appealing :-)

Cardstock ~ GinaK.
DP ~ From my scraps drawer
Stamp ~ Cardz TV - Very Merry
Ribbon, charm, card candy ~ from my stash
Copic markers used to colour image
Ultra Fine Flower Soft for Santa hat
Liquid Applique for frothy goodness :-)
