Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are ready for the start of a brand new week. I awoke before sunrise this morning, and have been enjoying watching this day unfold. I am not usually a morning person, so this is a very rare occurrence for me. But how peaceful it has been to watch the sun come up with a cup of coffee in hand, the pups who insistently woke me up bright and early with their need for attention now dozing peacefully at my feet. It looks like the start of another beautiful day.
We have a new challenge for you over at The Shabby Tea Room this morning. This week’s challenge, Christmas in July, is to create a holiday inspired card or project. After all the heat and humidity of the summer, a little dip into the chill of winter feels like a welcome relief.
Pulled out some of my favorite holiday papers of last season from Pink Paislee, as well as a few new goodies I picked up after the holiday. I love a combination of new and old. So satisfying on all levels.
The die-cuts are also Pink Paislee, layered onto a printed transparency and chipboard snowflake from LYB and dressed up with jingle bells and glittered stars. The sentiment comes from an older line of Webster’s Pages. The lovely flocked velvet frame piece and vintage Santa are from Creative Imaginations.
Hope you all come join us in the Tea Room this week, and get a head start on your holiday creations. One lucky winner will receive a package of goodies from Frost It Pink, our sponsor this week. Frost It Pink carries a variety of unique and newest products to fulfill your scrapbooking, crafting, cardmaking and papercraft needs. Be sure to check out their wonderful online store, blog, and gallery for tons of inspiration and eye candy!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
