Christmas in August

Happy Saturday,

I can't believe it is already August. The summer is flying by. Here is my third Christmas card who knows I may be ahead of myself this year. Today we welcome 5 new DT members. Be sure to stop by and visit their beautiful creations.

We have a new challenge over at CMC "Pink". I chose Christmas Tilda with Cat to create my card.
I stamped my image with Memento Black Ink. She was colored with Copic markers. Skin E000, E00, R20; Hair and Cat E50, E51, E53, R20, Dress and Socks R21, R32, R37, R39; Shoes C00, C01, C03. I used a sharpie paint marker to create the polka dots on her dress. To the sign she is holding I added Shabby White Frantage.

Here is a list of the other goodies I used for my card:
Magnolia Stamps - Christmas Tilda with Cat and inside Magnolia Christmas Sentiment
Prima Post Card Stamp
Memory Box Christmas Tree
Marianne Snowflake Die
Shabby White Frantage
Distress Ink
Lots of Flower

Take a peek at some different photos of the card.
