Christmas in July!

OK, No I'm not crazy, no I am not even thinking about Christmas,  especially the winter that goes along with it.   But it never hurts to start on Christmas projects ahead of time. 

And if you join the challenge at The Stamping Boutique you will have one Christmas card, project done.  At least check out their blog and see the awesome creations by the DT. 

This digi is their Winter Cardinal,  I LOVE  Cardinals.  I used the Stamping Up Hamburger Box die,  awesome die!!!!!!! for the gift box and Memory Box Frosted Flurry for the beautiful flakes decorating the top.

I'm a little late with this post because I went on a mini vacation to Holland Michigan this past weekend. Beautiful out there and I git lucky.... gorgeous weather and all the tulips were in bloom.

Is another challenge over at The Stamping Boutique,  "Mom" or a Girly card.  Come join the fun.

This is Garden Fairy,  Love, love, love this.  I colored her with Copics,  and used Tim Holtz glitter on her wings.  I used my new Memory box Butterfly die, and for dimension I just tacked the centers down so the butterflies can fly.  The butterflies were cut from Stampin Up Watercolor DP, and ribbon is from Stampin up.  And my DP is a recycled pain chip.  I love collecting paint chips from hardware stores.
