MMSC62 - Christmas in July

Good Morning!  Here's my take on the MMSC62.   I was so inspired by all the wonderful Christmas cards I've seen on all the blogs and various sites, that I decided to jump on the bandwagon.   This fun image (from a SU! set called Holiday Lineup) always makes me smile.  I couldn't resist using it to create my first card for Christmas, 2010.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:  Stamps - Holiday Lineup by SU!; Paper - PTI select white, SU! creamy caramel; Ink - Versafine vintage sepia, a combination of Copics, & pencils w/gamsol for coloring, as well as a Sakura clear star pen; Accessories -- Clear EP, Flower Soft, Sizzix EF, Spellbinder dies, ribbon, button & snowflake from my stash; sketch challenge - MMSC62.

  4. Pat, you have come up with another winner and a Christmas card at that. I like the way you think - get it done early!! I adore what you did with this SU image. It's so cute and I thought I detected something fuzzy on their heads and I saw you used flower soft - brilliant!! And, the button for Rudolph's nose. How much better can it get than that? Love your ribbon/snowflake treatment too. You did a great job!

    Thanks SO MUCH for joining the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week and I hope you can come out and play with us next week!
