SGC - Endless Summer Challenge


Summer is my most favourite season of the year, it brings swimming, jandals, Christmas, sand and sun.  All the fun stuff :)   And over at Southern Girls Challenge we are celebrating my favourite season with an "ENDLESS SUMMER" challenge.  And here is my card using a very cute image from one of our sponsors THE PAPER SHELTER.....

So it is pretty obvious that this little cutie wasn't actually designed as a Christmas image but I personally think that she looks pretty sweet in her Christmas hat and dress :)  I have coloured this image with my prismacolor pencils and added some highlights with glimmer glaze in Saffron.  The papers came in a pad I got cheap in Blitsy (link at the top of my blog) and the sentiment is Hero Arts.  The flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts and I blinged them with the glimmer glaze as well.
I am entering this card in the following challenges.......

Paper Pretties  - Christmas Inspired
Deep Ocean Challenge - So This is Christmas

Well, I can tell you that there are a LOT of people that flock to Florida every year so that they can do JUST this very thing. And some years it is colder than others but it is normally warmer than where they are from! LOL Thank you for joining us at The Stamping Boutique for Challenge #61 - Holiday Cards. We hope to see you in future challenges! Good Luck~Patti TSB DT

Why do we all think Christmas is cold and snow - it must be warm at least 50% of the world - just not my little bit! - still I can dream thank you for playing at this months challenge at Whimsy Stamps hugs Judith x
