Christmas?? in July??!!! Well Why Not? :o)

After seeing all the Christmas in July challenges out there I couldn't resist joining in :o)

I made this using a cute digi stamp from Sliekje Stamps, isn't he cute! I love dogs! I coloured the image using promarkers and added Glamour Dust to his hat and the snow. The snowflakes were die cut from acetate which I then covered with Glossy Accents and Glamour Dust, they are super sparkly you just can't tell so well in the photo's! The white panel has been embossed with a snowflakes embossing folder and I added a couple of pearls and some ribbon to finish off.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - It's Christmas
Crazy Challenge - Christmas in July
2 Sisters - Christmas in July
Papertake Weekly - All Things Girlie
My Mum's Craft Shop - Cats & Dogs

Oh the dreaded C word keeps cropping up in the creative community lol! Worse than the shops getting the decs etc. in in October!!

Thanks for your lovely comment. So glad you're enjoying what I'm doing with the inks. Defo look into the Ink Dusters. I have M.E. and my muscles get very tired very quickly, and I find the normal applicators or foam pads make my hand ache very quickly, but because you hold the Ink Duster like a pencil, it's a lot more comfortable. They blend so absolutely beautifully too! I bought a set of 3 (double ended) and keep one end for each of the main colour groups (reds, blues etc.) but purples have to double with blues! You can now get them in larger sets which I wish I could have got at the time, but you can't get them singly - smallest no. is 3, and I don't really need 6.
