Happy Fourth of July! If you are in the US, I hope you are having a healthy, happy, safe holiday! Our Stamp Ink Paper challenge this week is Christmas in July; one of my favorites! I love getting a head-start on my holiday cards!
I wanted to use some of the new DSP called Be Merry and I especially liked the little reindeer print:
I mounted a piece of it on a thick white cardstock base, added a large stitched oval and diecut some Cherry Cobbler deer using a Poppystamps die. The small dimensionals from SU are wonderful for adhering these little diecuts! I added a sentiment from Papertrey on a stitched banner, and since I had a little white open space that looked a bit bare, I added a little tiny banner:
Easy peasy monochromatic! I hope you'll play with us; if you haven't already started your holiday cards, now is a good time to begin! Be sure to stop by the SIP blog to check out all the beautiful creations!
We spent last Thursday at the pool; it's interesting to see how much more brave Cassidy is from year to year; this year she actually went down the large enclosed slide...not once but many times! She got rewarded with some ice cream (of course):
and that half-hour ride home was just a little too much for those tired bones:
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
