Paper Sundaes Challenge #78 - Christmas in July

It's Christmas in July over at Paper Sundaes this week for our 78th Challenge!  I love Christmas in July challenges because it means one less card I'm rushing to make when I leave it to the last second come the holiday season!   This week we are being sponsored by our monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp so be sure to play along for your chance to win a gift certificate to their store!

I coloured my Magnolia - Tilda Santa's Little Helper image with copics and then paired her up with papers from my Basic Grey Jovial 6x6 paper pad.  I cut out the main image & the sentiment using Nestabilities Labels 4 dies and the Merry Christmas sentiment is from a Hero Arts set called "Holiday Cheer Messages".  The felt pointsettias are also by Hero Arts and I distressed the edges of the image with Tim Holtz distress inks.

Now that I've started on Christmas cards all I can think about is Christmas baking YUM :)
