It's Christmas in July


It's Christmas in July over at Aud Sentiments for our Challenge #7.  Yep, it's time to start thinking about Christmas and we all know it will be here before we know it.  Our challenge this week is
  Choose Your Own Christmas Sentiment.  
We make it so easy don't we?  :)  So get out those Christmas images and get a jump start on all of those Christmas cards that you're going to have to make this year.  This challenge will run until Aug 3rd.

Our Sponsor this week is 


and they are offering a $10 Gift Certificate their store to our winner!!

The DT was graciously given images from Digi Doodle Shop for their sample cards.  I have used Christmas Delight.  I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love how it smells and the cute designs that you see made in the coffee with the cream.  I'll be honest, this is not how I expected this card to come out.  I originally colored the image on white cardstock, but didn't like the look.  I switched to Kraft cardstock and still wasn't thrilled over the outcome but was running short on time and had to call it good enough. The only thing I really like is how the shading came out on the saucer. 

I've used ton's of Papertrey Ink products...the paper (all of it), the ribbon, the ink and the sentiment.

Challenges:
Christmas Cards All Year Round = Anything Goes
Stampavie and More = #102 Anything Goes
Stamp Something = Digital
Digi Doodle Challenge = #17 Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sundays = #69 Christmas in July
