Christmas in July!

Christmas in July!??? That's the Hanna Stamps Challenge HSC26. Riley is relaxing a little after decorating the tree while visions of wrapping packages dance in his head. And the SCS Technique Lover's challenge today TLC178 has three separate challenge combined in one.....so, this card qualifies for five challenges! whoo! We were to use TLC20 (babywipes technique), CC30 (burgundy&cream), SC40 (this layout-I enlarged the bottom circle)!

I started with a burgundy base and attached a panel of dp from MME. The christmas tree (?) is stamped in blk stazon and the stars are colored with yo yo yellow then clear embossed-I used a versamarker to ink just the stars. I used the baby wipes tech. on the creamy caramel paper then punched small circles. The gift stamp is from Hip Hip Hooray and the sentiment is from Peace be unto You. Riley is watercolored with lid colors of wasabi, burgundy and cocoa.

It was fun doing a Christmas card! Especially during this heatwave we're experiencing! I had the pleasure of a few ladies today at my stamping table. Hi {waving}! It was lovely to stamp and chat. And when we were all done, we had to sort the stamps and make sure everyone went home with their own supplies.....oh well, we borrow from each other anyhow so everything would return to it's original owner someday! Blessings!
