Christmas in July!

Well it seems like it's Christmas in July all over web-land at the minute!!  So many challenges are taking up this theme that it all seems very festive - regardless of the scorching heatwave many of us are enduring in the States - and we're no different over at The Outlawz with this Friday's challenge :)

Our sponsor this month is the wonderful Megan of Dillybeans and she has some fabulous Christmas images available to use, along with many other cute and edgy designs.

For my card, I used the 'Snow Family' digi and added a few musical notes and the "Fa la la" on Adobe PSE10.  I coloured it with Copics but went for a zingy, non-traditional colour scheme for a change.

I also added some Stickles for a touch of glitter and a few punched snowflakes with gems - I'm trying to keep the Xmas cards nice and simple this year!

I would like to enter this into the following - - Christmas in July

Thanks for popping in - please do go and take a look at the rest of the Outlawz DT's work - you'll be so glad you did :)

I'm heading off to CHA this Sunday so I'm very excited!!!  I havn't been to Chicago before so it's a double whammy of excitement :D   I'll have some scheduled posts ready for the week but will try and pop in with some news and info if I can.  I'm doing a number of workshops - Altered Art by May Arts, My Little Shoebox, Mix and Match Collage Canvas  - so I'm hoping to come away with lots of inspiration!!!

Let me know if any of you are going too - would love to meet up :)
