Santa and friends

Yes, another Christmas in July card -- a bit of an early start, which always helps to take the last minute stress off.   As you know how time flies, it'll be here before we know it.   This cutie pie digital comes from Di's Digi Designs.   I added glitter to the penguin hats and snow.   A couple doilies layered behind, and then the other embellishments are foam stickers that I dug from my holiday stash organizer.

Summer splendour

Ah, summertime, and the joy of indulging in a cool, sweet treat, as this QKR Stampede bear is doing -- actually, he's looking like he just might have over-indulged this time around - hahaha !   I added stardust stickles to the sundae glass, a ribbon along the bottom, die cut filigree corner and a die cut heart, with an added 3-D heart to the center, and candi-dots complete my card.   You're now excused to go satisfy YOUR sweet tooth!

Checking the list

This Santa image comes from Crafty Sentiments Designs, and of course, he's getting an early start on checking his holiday list, just like crafters are getting a jump start on making holiday cards in July.   I computer-generated the sentiment, then added the embellishments of Rudolph, the tree, and poinsettias.  Thanks for coming in to take a peek!

Hug a reindeer

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, and don't panic, as we're not all THAT close to Christmas just yet -- it's a case of Christmas in July for some of us crafters that either want to get a jump start, or at least wish to participate in some of the challenges.  This cute winter image comes from Digi Doodle Studios - the reindeer certainly looks friendly enough to hug!  I added stardust stickles to her hat, coat hem and the snow on the tree.  The penguin is a brad, the trees, mittens and sentiment are die cuts.   A couple 3-D snowflakes completes my creation.

Soccer play

This sporty boy comes from the Bugaboo store, and it was nice to do them in different colors.  I kept to a simple card design, to make for ease in mailing.  Thanks for coming in to view.

Birthday beauty

This precious little lady comes from the Lacy Sunshine store.   I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol.   The butterflies, foliage and happy birthday were done with die cuts.   Brads are the centers in the flowers, and a doily was tucked behind for a lacy touch.  Small pearls make up the butterfly centers.  This card was sent to our daughter-in-law, which she enjoyed.

Ladybug luck

This cute ladybug scene comes from Bugaboo, and I kept my card design simple, so the main focus stays on the image itself.  I did add the computer-generated sentiment and also couldn't resist the addition of a little 3-D extra ladybug to top it off.
