Merry Christmas in JULY!!! ...it is the 25th, ya know!

5 months til Christmas... *giggle* yeah, I know... seems like forever.
For me even more so!
Today marks exactly 2 months til our Wedding September 25th...
Something else I feel totally unprepared for even though everything is buzzing along.
Sooooo...
I decided to drag put my bin of Christmas Sh-tuff and distract myself.
Got 2 challenges done, all in good 'spirits'.
MERRY CHRISTMAS in JULY!!!

Welcome to another fluttering Wednesday!!
This week your challenge is Christmas in July--however you perceive it! Just be sure to use a butterfly, fairy or angel on your new creation!!


I couldn't make up my mind: red on green? or green on red?
So I made both!
Textured cardstock is from the DCWV Christmas Card Stack.
Pattern paper is from DCWV Christmas Stack (2009).
Butterfly Mask, Stamp & Glimmer Mists are Tattered Angels.
Christmas Stamp is from Close the My Heart 'Vintage Christmas' set.
All inks Stampin'Up!
Ribbon & Holly... Stash Booty! (unknown)



Every month we will be bringing you a sketch and detail challenge…the sketch component is optional however the detail (or element) component is not…have fun.


I tried reeeeeeeeally hard to stick with the sketch.
Sketch following is new to me... I usually just sit down and start putting things together.
Drives the sketch-followers crazee... but that's just the way my brain works or sorta-works... lol.
Pattern Paper is Creative Imaginations Tinsel Town Pad.
Textured Cardstock (red) DCWV.
Glitter Tree sticker are Recollections.
All inks are Stampin'Up!
