Christmas in July

On my blog I do Christmas all throughout the year but the SugarPea Design blog is specifically having a Christmas in July theme so of course I had to play along! I actually played along with 2 of their current challenges....the current sketch challenge and the Christmas theme.

I used my favorite SPD Christmas set, Merry Christmoose. Moose are in my area all throughout the year but the winter is the most common time to see them. One Christmas we had a moose chew on our Christmas lights in the backyard....I'll never forget seeing my husband stand in the dining room window and he was yelling through the window "NO! BAD MOOSE! NO!". I was outside with my camera taking pictures and it was so hard to stay still while I was laughing uncontrollably :)

I was recently in my local stamp store and they had some Christmas paper on sale and so I picked up these fun papers from Carta Bella called 'All Bundled Up'. I just love the soft blue, the rich brown and the Christmas red of these papers! I took the sketch and turned it on it's side, rounding the corners of the red pattern paper and the Neenah Solar White that I used for the image panel. The moose and trees were all colored with Copics. It doesn't show up in the photos but I used Wink of Stella on the trees.

Head on over and play along with both SPD challenges, and thanks for stopping by!
