* Christmas in July *

I found a new challenge site which had a great sketch to work with this week - Paper Play Challenge. So I decided to enter and combine a challenge from Karens Doodles US where the theme is Christmas in July. And if you have a lot of cards to make, better start on time, right?
I have chosen for First Snow digi stamp combined with my own stamp, which will be offered in a next post as freebie. The papers are Eskimo Kisses which is Basic Greys amazing X mas line of last year. I still have some scraps of those, enough to start making some Christmas cards already.
This is also for:
2 sisters challenge: Christmas in July
The shabby tearoom: Christmas in July
Fab n Funky: Christmas in July
Ooh La La: Christmas in July
Cute card Thursday: christmas headstart

Supplies: white, pink, green cardstock, Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey, Fiskars borderpunch, digi stamp Karen's Doodles, my own wordart, Derwent pencils.
