Christmas in July

Happy Monday everyone! 

Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating their sixth annual 'Christmas in July' event so I thought I would get a head start on my Christmas cards this year and join in!

My first card features the adorable Snowman Winter image and it't colored with Copics. The sentiment and designer papers are from from Doodlebug Design, the Polar Pals collection. I used MFT dies for Pierced Ovals and Corner.
I would like to enter this card into the Following Challenges:
Catch The Bug- Christmas is July Day 1- Use Snowmen or Snowflakes
ABC Christmas- N is for No Rules 
Christmas Card Challenges- Snowman
CHNC challenge extra for July- Anything Goes + Christmas

For my second card I used the sweet Snowman Patches image, also colored with Copics. I created the background with the fabulous Christmas Story stamp from Penny Black- it's stamped with VersaMark ink onto kraft cardstock and then dusted with chalk. Walnut Stain ink was used for the distressing and I used a Every Elle die for the Scalloped Border.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Catch The Bug- Christmas in July Day 2- Sketch

A Gem of a Challenge- Let's Get Krafty (use Kraft CS)
Come and Get ItMake your own background
Dragonfly Journeys- July Jingle Bells

Well, that's all for today... Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of the wonderful comments you leave :)

So glad to see you're joining our Christmas in July event over at Catch the Bug. I really like these non traditional colored cards. I've always used traditional colors myself, but to avoid making too similar cards for people I thought I'd try and use other colors as well for this years cards. Love the background stamp used on the sketch card and lime green makes it look so fresh and it goes really well with kraft.
