Christmas in July

Like many crafters out there, I decided to give Christmas in July a try . . . this cutie pie is a My Besties image from Sherri Baldy.  I've colored her with prismas and added stickles to her hat and the upper edge of the stocking - don't you love that little pup, peeking out!  I used a holly corner diecut and placed a couple poinsettias atop, a couple doiles at the upper corner, along with ribbon that has Merry Christmas already printed on it, some silver bells, holly, candi-dots and a sheer gold bow to finish it off.   A bit of a jump start for my 2016 Christmas card stash.
