CHRISTMAS IN JULY AT A DAY FOR DAISIES!

Before you know it, it will be Christmas and what better way to get inspired to start on your holiday cards than with Christmas in July presentation at A DAY FOR DAISIES BLOG.  The TALENTED DT at A DAY FOR DAISIES have some FABULOUS Christmas in July creations to share with you today, so please visit A DAY FOR DAISIES BLOG to see them.  Also, if you have time, please visit all the DTs individual blogs and leave them some well deserved love:)


I chose "Teddy" as my image for today and you can find this cutie along with the whole line of ADFD images at A DAY FOR DAISIES SHOP.  I colored this image with Copics and added Flower Soft for she stocking and Stickles for the heart.  Image cut with Nesties.  Velvet ribbon is from Webster's Pages, and bling and pearl flourishes are from Prima.  Sentiment and candy cane stamp are clear stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps and circles cut with Quickutz dies.  Textured CS from SU and DP from K and Co.  I hope you like it!!

Also, remember, there is still one more week to enter our "Secret Ingredient" Challenge at A DAY FOR DAISIES BLOG, so we hope to see you there:)  Submissions close at 3pm EST on Thurs., August 4.

Finally, I just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Tammy, owner and illustrator of A DAY FOR DAISIES, and Arielle, DT coordinator, as well as all the DT girls for letting me play along as GDT for the month of July.  I have had such a FABULOUS time with all of you and Tammy's STUNNING images.  Hugs:)
