CHRISTMAS in July -- still going strong

Good Morning Friends,

I am so inspired by so many different artists out there, whether it be the masters, pop or crafting artists, it is all inspiring and keeps me wanting to improve my own skills.

I just love the Christmas in July that seems to be on all the blogs right now, and challenges abound everywhere. I am so excited to get my Christmas cards made early this year. I just need to get the list made out and envelopes addressed and stamped and then I can put them in the mail September 1st- just kidding hah ha.
I actually did get a Christmas card in July one year, I thought it was pretty funny.

For my card I used the MOJO MONDAYS sketch, which I really love and I used the Graphics 45 Christmas Emporium  card stock, My images are from Santa's village imagine cartridge.  The little stocking says Merry Christmas on it, that is the sentiment. I love the way this came out I think it has a great vintage look I think that may be due too the fact I did a lot of inking with Tim Holz walnut stain distressed ink.

I hope you enjoy my card:

Challenges I'm enterin this in:

BBTB2: Christmas in July

Have a blessed day, Diana
