It is hard for me to do it, but I made a Christmas card in July. I’m one of those people who need it to be mid-December before I’m really in the mood to make a Christmas card, which is a real problem in order for me to actually get any created and in the mail for people! This past week’s Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge was Christmas in July. I do need to make some Christmas and winter-themed cards for our heroes, so I’m okay with getting some made during the summer months! So for my first Christmas card, I thought I needed to show off a penguin! After stamping the image, I colored it with Copic markers and then added some distress inks along the border of it. I then added the sentiment at a jaunty angle with some ribbon behind it. Enjoy and hopefully the snow will help cool you off–it has been a hot weekend for us! Thanks for stopping by.
