Happy Monday all!! Well, I am still on vacation and I am sure I am having a wonderful time!! I wanted to make sure I posted my Whimsy Challenge card since this was such a fun challenge - make a card for Christmas in July!! Too fun AND I get ahead on my Christmas cards!! I decided on the moose, he just screams Christmas to me so I colored him and cut him out! I stamped my trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set in the background and added some fun sparkly fluff from OCL to make my snow. I popped my moose up on dimensionals and put him on the card as the main focal image and I am really happy with how it turned out! Added some bling, cut out my oval scallop using my die for my Big Shot and Voila!! Christmas in July! Take a gander over at the Whimsy challenge site and see what the other DT gals did - I just know they totally ROCKED it since I saw some of them before I left!! And, if you decide to play along, make sure you upload your link to the site to get entered into the drawing for something fun! Nope, you don't have to use Whimsy Stamps, but if you have them, why not use them? And, if you don't have any, take a look at the Whimsy store, Denise has all kinds of fun stuff in there plus her new digi images are also now available!! I will be back on Wednesday from vacation and will have said goodbye to my son as he drives back to Annapolis to start the school year again. I already miss him just thinking about it!!! See you all soon and thanks so much for stopping by!!
