Christmas in July sketch challenge!

Good day! Right now I am on my way to Chicago to the CHA Supershow (that's Craft and Hobby Association) yee haw!! so hopefully this is posting on time!

DRS Designs is hosting the last week of Tuesday Morning Sketches birthday month! This month you could use any sketch over the last year to follow to design your card AND since it has been so hot - you must use a Christmas theme!! What a cool off - yay! If you want to play.....follow this link - you could win some awesome stuff!!

I chose to go back to the first of their year and use the second sketch, TMS#2

and here is my card and as per usual I changed it up a!

The snowman is Large Snowman Portrait, which I coloured up with copics.

I ran a piece of red cardstock through  my Candy Cane Cuttlebug folder and then swiped my white ink across the top to look like a striped scarf. I did the same with the card base so it would match.

I stamped the background snowflakes with the Interlocking Snow Background

Using my blue and yellow Marvy snowflake punches, I punched out one large snowflake and two small ones and attached them with glue dots and added buttons!


  1. Darling Christmas card...Have fun at CHA!

  2. *Squeal* I love this!! The paper is wonderful and I love how you changed it up a bit. This looks fantastic. Thanks for playing along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

    Hey, bring me back something from CHA would ya? I was so there...really I was...
    Ok, not that close, but I decided this wasn't good timing for me to take a trip and now I am sad. And jealous. Yep.
