Simply Christmas In July

It's that time of week again! Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply time...#45! Our challenge this week...Christmas in July! The first thing I thought of when I heard this was my Papertrey Believe set and since I just received my new Papertrey...minus the little owl...he's on backorder! Ahhh!....but I used my dark chocolate card stock and ribbon and a piece of the dotted paper that came in the little paper pack.

Wait??? Chocolate and red???? Yup....why not? Anyway, here's the card....

What do you think? I really like the brown and red for Christmas. Be sure and check out the rest of the Stamp Simply team....Julie, Dee, Tammy, Janine, and Becky.

Hope you are all doing well! I must get busy on another card. I have three started on my desk. Of course, my desk currently looks as if a scrapbook store exploded on it! I know they are there somewhere!

Post you all soon!

...sorry...completely forgot to add....his beard and the trim of his hat and suit is covered in liquid pearls. I really love this product. After his beard dried I went back and added more dots for a bit more dimension.

Chocolate and red is a wonderful combination!!! I love this particular Santa as well -- any Olde Worlde Santa's get me every time -- LOL!!!! A wonderful card for the holidays -- just love it!! Thank you so much!!! And I just can't get the smiling faces of you and your *crew* out of my mind -- it was so NICE to finally meet you at CHA -- wasn't that place busy -- just no time to really sit and visit, which is what I would have LOVED to do more than anything -- just so glad I got to meet you IRL!!!! Hugs!!!
