Christmas in July - part 2

Hey, it's friday and you know what that means - yes it's the weekend (woohoo) and another bellariffic challenge.  This week our theme is Christmas in July.  One can never be too early to start their holiday cards, nor have too many.

For my image this week, I'm using one of my favourites - FROSTY- I have a soft heart for snowman- all shapes and sizes, don't matter, I love them.

I decided to make Frosty a 'guy' snowman so went with the blue/brown tones this year.  I bought this paper pack last year after Christmas, so never had a chance to use it.  Paper is from Bo Bunny called the Snowfall collection.

I stamped him on bella's bestest paper and coloured him with pencils and blended with gamsol.
I used a SU border punch for the trim along the blue snowflake piece.  Added some glossy accents to his black buttons and the christmas balls, diamond dust to the ground area and lots of glitter all around him.

This worked up pretty fast, so it would be a good card to 'mass produce' if need be.

Need some inspiration for carry on with your holiday cards? Then be sure to stop over at bloggabella to see what the rest of the babes and guests created.  Leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks.

Next week our theme is back to another sketch.  Play along with us and email your card to Emily by thursday night.  Not only will your card be on bloggabella but you will have a chance to win some bella bucks.
Thanks for peeking in today.  Have yourself a great weekend!

Awww, he's sweet! Very cute card. I need a kick in the pants to get going on my Christmas cards. Just can't seem to finish the two I've got started. Not getting much stamping done this summer at all!
