Joyous July

It's as good as time as any to start on my pile of Christmas cards! 

I took my inspiration for the layout from the fab sketch at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  My palette came from the fabulous Daring Cardmaker's July Color Combo.  With Amusing Challenges also doing a Christmas in July, my hoho mojo was complete!

I wanted to do a little something different with this sweetie and her snowman buddy, so I stamped them on craft, colored them and added white cardstock snow drifts behind them. 

Stamps: girl and snowman, sentiments from Candy Kisses (Rogue Redhead Designs)

Here's to cool Yule thoughts in the summer sun!
