This darling image isn't necessarily for Christmas but it just struck me as being a perfect representation of every 8-year-old girl (and her cat) who is determined to "stay awake for Santa" so I made this to add one more Christmas card to my stash. I managed to get several done in response to all the "Christmas in July" inspirations but the reality is that I'm going to have to make one or two each week between now and December to have enough cards to cover all my needs this year.
The image is by Sarah Kay and I colored it with my ProMarkers, then die cut it with a die from Cheery Lynn. That cut is actually the center piece from one of their lovely, square, 'doily' die sets but I saved the frame piece for another project.
The snowflake swirl is cut through the card front and green dp with a Memory Box die. I added the printed sentiment and the burlap bow and left it without other embellishment. A great majority of my Christmas cards have CAS designs because so many of them have to be mailed.

The weather seems to be cooling down a bit - by about 5 degrees F from Sunday, but when it's still 103, that just doesn't seem very cool to me. :-D Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
