STAMP SOMETHING - CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Happy Friday all, WHOOHOO!! I LOVE Fridays because I am home from work, LOL!!! I am so looking forward to blog hopping this morning and checking out all the latest creations that I have missed this week!!! And, today is also Stamp Something Challenge day!! The challenge this week is to Stamp Something Christmas and is sponsored by Firecracker Designs. So, anything having to do with Christmas will fit the challenge!! Firecracker Designs will be providing a fabulous prize to one lucky individual who participates this week. Since I don't have any of their stamps (yet), I chose one of my favorite SU! stamps sets called Big On Christmas - I love the great block lettering of the images in this set!! For my card, I chose to cut out the tree in the main image and pop it up on dimensionals to add some dimension to my card!! I had fun making a Christmas card and hey, now I have one less to make for the season!! Please make sure you head on over to the SS site and check out all the fun cards the DT gals made for this challenge - they are all really fabulous!!! And, if you choose to participate, make sure you upload your link to be considered!!! Now, I am off to blog hop - I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
