It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!


OK, you caught me. It's July and it has been really hot here in North Carolina, but why don't we cool things down a bit with some wonderful Christmas inspiration from Karen's Doodles. This week the US team is challenging you to get started with your Christmas cards.

For my card, I used Bigsby Swinging Lights. I colored him with copics, and cut and colored two sets of the lights - and added Liquid Glass to make them shiny. Then, I decided it just would not look Christmasy without glitter. So, I colored my entire background with a Zig glue pen, and added Martha Stewart ultrafine glitter.

If I keep working on my Christmas cards, maybe I will have enough finished in time for Christmas!

Challenges:
Karen's Doodles - Christmas
Basic Grey - Gingham
Friday Sketchers - sketch
Creative Card Crew - diecuts
Flourishes - Christmas in July
Creative Inspirations - On the Move
Simon Says - Picture inspiration (color)
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas in July
ABC Christmas Challenge - N Noel
