Christmas 'Cheer'

     It's Day 5 and I've managed to enter each and every day of the daily challenges at Catch the Bug's Christmas in July.  Today's theme is "Make it Funny" and there's an inspiration photo which can also be incorporated.

     I chose this fun image and made up my own sentiment to go with it.


     I colored the image with ProMarkers and colored pencils plus a bit of glittered gel ink on the cocktail glass and liquid.  I cut it with a square die from QuicKutz, then distressed the edges with a craft knife blade.

     I dug through my scrap basket and found the papers, distressed the edges of the red one and curled one corner.  I printed and fussy cut the sentiment, distressed the edges lightly.  The ribbon and bow were waiting in my stash and they seemed a perfect final touch.

     Challenges:
ABC Christmas
Crafty Gals Corner
Crafty Sentiments
Cutie Pie (top row)
Digi Choosday
Lemon Shortbread
{PIN}spirational
Simon Says Stamp & Show
TTCRD

     Only two more days of the Christmas in July and I'm already working on cards for both days.  I am pretty sure I'm going to make my goal of entering each day's challenge.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
