Christmas in July

Over at Bugaboo Stamps challenge site ~ Catch The Bug~ there is a week long set of mini challenges.  All about Christmas in July.   Monday was to use non-traditional colours, Tuesday to use the free image ~ Christmas Ruby~ available here and Wednesday was to use a sketch

I have downloaded Ruby but still have to make a card with here.... but last night, used another Bugaboo image to use the sketch.
Christmas in July
I used watercolour pencils to colour in my image and hunted through my stash to find Christmas papers.  I finished with a red flower and crocheted the green one while I was waiting for the glossy accents to dry.  

These images that Jodie has created are so cute.  Go see what she has in store.  And every Friday she has a Freebie... that are adorable and funny and down right hilarious at times.

Nearly the weekend ~ Yeah~  

Take care
