Little Red Wagon # 247 Christmas in July

 Hello everyone, it is time for another FABULOUS challenge over at Little Red Wagon.

This week Jan is hosting our challenge and our theme is.......CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!!!

Having just returned from a nice and relaxing vacation, Christmas has definitely been the furthest thing from my mind. Lucky for me I had a cute image coloured from last season that hadn't yet made her way to a holiday card.

For my first Christmas card of the season I used an adorable digital image from Tiddlyinks called Mini in Lights.

In my Christmas stash I pulled out some paper from KaiserCraft (Mint Twist) and a fun die cut heart from Bella Blvd Christmas Countdown. I also found some fun glitter paper and the bulb charms in my holiday stash for this card.

Mini is coloured with Copic markers. To create the sparkly dress I first coloured, then I added liquid glue and sprinkled her with Glitter Ritz Micro fine glitter. On her glasses I added Glossy Accents.

For the inside of the card I decorated using a Simple Stories Snap Christmas tag.

Feeling like getting your JINGLE on for this weeks Christmas in July challenge. Link up your projects over at the Little Red Wagon blog and while you are there check out the Holiday projects by the other Girlfriends.

Happy Crafting!

    Lols x x x
    p.s, I tried to be a follower but it won't let me, will pop back later :-) love your blog ! :-)

    1. Thanks Lorraine.

      I know the follower button has not worked for me since I created my blog, lots of newer blogs were having this trouble. Instead of selecting the "Join This Site" button, you can either add my URL to your blogger reading list (in your blogger account) or, click on those two squares to the right of the "Join this site" button. From there you will see the current follower and in the top right corner another "follow" button. This button should work to allow you to follow this blog via the Google Friend connect. Thanks for your interest in my blog!

  3. Cute image Tracy and love the sentiment inside and out!

  4. So darn cute! And I love the charms - perfect!!
