Christmas in July

     QKR Stampede has a new challenge starting today and we're celebrating "Christmas in July."  Last month, I finally started my stash of Christmas cards and this challenge gives me the opportunity to add to it.  Most years, I have at least half of my cards made by this time but I'm really behind this year.


     I started with two wonderful digis, a Santa for the chimney (Digi 16714 "Santa Bear") and a snowman for the yard (Digi 8715 "Merry Christmas.")  I colored with my ProMarkers, cut with dies from Spellbinders, and added offset, die cut, mats to each image.  The grosgrain ribbon was a scrap in my stash and snowflakes were left over from last year's Christmas cards.  This was a pretty fast and simple design and I have added one more to the stash.

     Challenges:
613 Avenue Create
Christmas Cards All Year Round
Colour Your World
Crimbo Crackers
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends
Outlawz Greetings
Outlawz Twisted Thursday
Winter Wonderland

     Come play along this week, won't you?   You don't have to use QKR Stampede images, but if you do, your card will be put into a separate drawing and that will increase your chances of winning.  Hope to see you playing.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.
