Gotta have some Christmas in July!!!

I can't believe it's Thursday already!!!

I'm still campin' and I'm still stampin', but it's my last day and by the time you are reading this, I'm probably already packed and on my way home!!!  But.......I did make several cards that I have scheduled to show you throughout the rest of the week!

Here's another card that I made on Wednesday.  DH was so sweet, today.  He said since it's my last day I could craft until my heart was content......and in the 96 degree weather, I opted to stay out of the heat in the air conditioned camper to do just that!  Perfect way to end my trip, if you ask me!

Here's one of the 3 cards I made Wednesday afternoon!

Now, I know that this is a little untraditional (well, actually a lot),  but it is really growing on me.  You see, I absolutely loved the sketch this week from The Sweet Stop and I was almost ready to make a baby card using the center panel when I saw the words..........Christmas in July.......on the sketch!!!  Ughhhhhhhhh.......I never saw a blue reindeer or a turquoise tree, so a fancy ornament was going to have to  I'm not sure you can tell in the picture, but the faux stitching and the little glittery circles on the bulb are done in the prettiest turquoise.

The colors were inspired by this week's SCC Color Challenge. mentioned in the caption above, I'm using it for the Sweet Stop #117 Sketch Challenge

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Inkadinkado - Christmas Words stamp set
 W Plus 9 -Poinsettia Patterns stamp set (sentiment)
DCWV - Green Tea Stack
Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky & Stamper's Select White cardstock
