Christmas in July......

Good Afternoon!
Today I finally have my card for
Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge blog.
This month's challenge is Christmas in July!
I was out of town and didn't get it in time so
here it is:

I think she is so adorable! Her name is "Letters To Santa."
I just had to do her up all frilly and girly!! Which is the
challenge over at Belles and Whistles this week!

I used alot of distress crackle paint, snow tex and some glitter.
I added a ton of lace and cheesecloth as well.

Papers ~ Webster's Pages
Inks ~ Distress inks and twinkling h20's
Accessories ~ lace and ribbon ~ WOC
Bronze items ~ Hobby Lobby, felt ~ PTI
Sentiment ~ Catslife Press, snowflake die ~ WOJ

Well this is the start of my Christmas cards for the year!
I hope I can stick with them as I ALWAYS fall behind!
Now all the Christmas papers are coming out and I only
got the Authentique ones so far! I still have a bunch from
last year that I need to use up!!

Anyways thanks so much for stopping by and I hope
that you all have a fabulous week-end and stay cool!
