It's Christmas - oh in JULY that is for Challenge #83 at Send a Smile 4 Kids.

Funny how time flies! Hard to believe we are on the downhill run to
Sorry if I scared you into thinking it was December and not July
but I really enjoy making a few early ones and it is a nice change
from what we do the rest of the year.
Also it is so busy by December
it is good to have a few up your sleeve in ready.
Now that you are relaxed I will fill you in on our challenge over at
It is as you have guessed
This adorable little girl is from Whoopsie Daisy
and is a pre coloured one (my favourite kind)
which made this card so easy to make.
I used red card stock and the backing papers were
a freebie from a magazine - lucky me.
The white card stock is embossed with a Cuttlebug Folder
I cut out the image from Spellbinder Ovals
The snowflakes I inked to match.
Added a bit of shimmer with Iridescent Medium
and the candle with a gold gel pen.
Here I have used basic white card stock
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Scrapbook Christmas Paper and from Doodle Panty
My Stately Nutcracker Image (popped) is from
 Doodle Pantry again a pre coloured image -
I am so lucky this month with being supplied with
2 pre coloured images from our generous sponsors.
The large snowflake is cut from Jac Paper from a
Cuttlebug die and  glittered.
Finished with a button, twine and sentiment from Gina K Designs.
Our Generous Sponsors are
Whoopsie Daisy - 2 Sheets of winners choice
Doodle Pantry - $10 gift certificate
 Sassy Studio Designs - 4 images of winners choice

Christmas in July Card Challenge for Kids.

I for one applaud your foresight and think it will make all the difference in the end. My concern is that I'll not remember where I stored them and be back to square one on the 15th of Dec. Beautiful creations you've made here Ina and I'm truly inspired. My favorite is the Nutcracker. Reminds me of our place in Ruppertsweiler. :)

Ina these are stunning Christmas designs, so fresh and different. Love the blue, red and black on the first and the more traditional colours on the second.
