Summer Holiday

Happy Monday All!

Hope you had a great weekend. The sun was out the whole weekend here so we can't complain! After the rainy summer we've been having any sun is definitely welcome.

I have a card to share today, one I created for a few challenges. First, today there's a new challenge posted at Whimsy Challenges and we want to see your "Christmas in July" creations. You can make a holiday or winter themed card. Feel free to combine this challenge with other challenges and you do not need to use a Whimsy Stamps image to play along. If you have one, of course we'd love to see it though.

This is my let is snow card using Whimsy Seal. I think this little guy is perfect for winter. He's been colored with Copics and then I added some "snow" underneath him. The "snow" is a snow writer pen and glitter. This sketch/layout is from Friday Sketchers and I used some SU! Night of Navy with Bashful Blue cardstock. I also used a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed with the CB and snowflakes folder.

The ribbon is from a retired SU! pack. The embellishments are some punched out navy circles with buttons, which qualify for the challenge at Stamp with Fun of punches and shapes. I also added a piece of gingham ribbon with a snowflake charm and brad. The sentiment is from Whimsy's Winter Words set which is on a tag created using the word window punch.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a great afternoon. I'm headed outside with the kids now and then maybe a picnic on the lawn in the backyard.

Happy stamping! :)

I want to give a big shout out to Dalis, my teammate on Pile It On!, today is her birthday! Hope it's a great one Dalis! Happy Birthday and many more! :)
