Christmas in July- part 1

Hey, it's Friday again - woohoo!  And being Friday you know it's another Bellariffic challenge.
This weeks challenge was a sketch.  With all this heat we have been having- actually the last couple of days have been bearable, I thought I would work on a 'cooler' image.  I kind of promised myself back in February that I would start to do one Christmas card a week, so I wasn't so bogged down come fall to get them done.  Well, this is my first Christmas card I've done - but it's a start right?

I have today confused Christmas dog.  He seems to be a favourite image, everyone loves him.

As always, I started by stamping my image on bella's bestest paper.  The colouring was done using copics.  I sponged some antique linen around the image after he was cut out.  Paper is from MME- 12 days of Christmas.  Instead of the sentiment I used a snowflake which was cut using a spellbinder snowflake die, then I placed a silver snowflake in the middle of that.
Finished off with some glitter.

Be sure to stop over at Bloggabella to see what the rest of the babes and sistah's have done for this challenge.  Leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks.

Next week our challenge is Christmas In July - well looks like I was a week early, I guess I should of checked our schedule!  Hey that means I will have 2 cards done!! Email Emily your card by thursday night - if you play along you have a chance to win $20 in bella bucks, and one less holiday card you will have to make later!!!

Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by.

I don't know how many times I've tried to start on the Christmas cards. I actually have two started but am having a hard time sitting down to finish them. This one is totally adorable! Playful Christmas cards like this are my favorites.
