OOC's Christmas in July Theme Challenge



I'm trying to keep up with Our Creative Corners (OCC) weekly challenges. Its tiring but these challenges keep me busy. This weeks theme is Christmas in July! My stash of Christmas DP is "nill" and I had to use pieces from my scrap pile. The dimensions of these cards are 4 1/4 X 4 1/4. the stamp is from The Cats Pajamas and the sentiment is from SU's Circle of Friendship Set. The DP is from my stash and I used Spellbinders die templates to mat my image. The inks are Adirondack Pitch Black and Copic Markers. Other embellishments are ribbon, Dew Drops and paper pierce tool.

I also have a couple of awards to post.

The BFF award is from Stephnie! Thank you so much for awarding me Stephie! I'm going to check around to see if I have any friends left to nominate. This award is very popular right now:)

This award is from Marlou! Thank you Marlou, you are very kind!

Thank you for stopping by and have a beautiful day:)

Hugs and keep up the fabuloso work! Oh, thanks for your sweet comment, I can't wait to get my TAC stuff, I am SO limited on supplies so it will be awesome.
