Christmas in July

Happy Friday everyone,

It's a busy one for me as I am packing the Van for a weekend get way camping with my kids and grandsons Whoooo Hoooo!!! It's all about laying by the pool, riding the waves at the Lake and roasting marshmallows over the open fire for me and a few fruity umbrella drinks to quench the thirst! LOL! - Four days of relaxing and enjoying my beautiful boys!!!

Before I share my card with you I want to introduce some very talented gals that have joined the Fussy & Fancy Design  Team , Welcome ladies!!!

Now we have switch a few things up with the design team and now have two groups - our challenges will still be every other week but each Friday the Fussy & Fancy Blog will showcase new DT cards to help you see the talent of the team and our take on the challenge.
Today Group 1 will share their cards and Next Friday Group 2 will then share their cards, More eye candy for you!! Please stop by the design teams girls blogs and wish them all a warm welcome. We all love to receive your sweet comments :)

Well now let's talk Christmas!!! Yes it's just around the corners and it will be here before you and me know it! Yikes!!!

The Fussy and Fancy gals want to get a jump on those Christmas cards so our challenge this week is show us your Christmas in July projects!
There are some very cute Christmas digi's being released by so many fabulous companies, but this time around I actually went to one of my stamp drawers and pulled out and inked up a true stamp!!! Man it's been awhile since these poor things have seen any ink.  Quite a different inking up a stamp then downloading a digital image, I had to ink it a few times to get a good print as I am so out of practice! LOL!

The beautiful design paper is from Cloud9Designs Sparkle Climbing flowers and it's from last year, the HM stamp is HMKR 1032 "What is it", colored with Copics, the gorgeous ribbons are all from the ribbon outlet in WV that my dear friend Melissa took me to when I visited her. Card stock is PTI Scarlet Jewel, Pebbles glitter candy dots and Prima flower and leaves.

WOW! this is really a long post, sorry pretty chatty here, We would love to see your Christmas cards, please join the challenge as we would love to come visit you.

Have a very crafty day
