Christmas in July!

Happy Friday Everyone! I can't believe how busy this summer has been! Between doctor appointments, swimming lessons, jury duty, and religious education classes, the last few weeks have left little time for stamping and blogging. Thankfully, I've been able to make time to participate in the Blogger's Challenge each week. This week's challenge is to make a Christmas card. I ended up using a lot of different companies on this one so here is the low down. The Polka Dot Penguins are from Stampendous. The sentiment, Bashful Blue, Real Red, and oval punches are all from Stampin' Up. The A Muse snowflakes are embossed with Stampin' Up's Iridescent Ice embossing powder. The plaid ribbon is from Michaels. Lastly, the patterned paper is from DCWV. I told you that there were a lot of different companies here...lol! It's always nice to have choices. Have you started making your Christmas cards yet? If you would like some inspiration to help you get started, just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo on the right of my blog. Have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles!!! :D
