Christmas in July

Hi All!

I have a post today that I will be entering in the My Craft Spot Challenge #63. The theme is Christmas in July and I thought I would give it a try!

This is a 6x4 premade card base from my stash, plain white. I used Christmas papers from My Minds Eye. The adorable stamp is by Penny Black. I colored the image with watercolor pencils, which I am fairly new at. I do not own any copics and thought I had better see if I like coloring before I invest so much money. I cut the circle scallop @ 3.5 from CTMH AP cart. I added a few recollections brads, stamped the sentiment from a Stampin' Up stamp in CTMH Blush ink. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by today. See you next time!


  1. Super sweet card! Thanks for playing at My Craft Spot.

  2. Adorable card! Love the coloring too. I have 3 sets of markers, and I love all of them especially my copics. TFS

  3. Ok... you certainly don't look like you are new to watercolor pencils. This is perfection! What an adorable card!!!
