Christmas in July- Day 6

I can’t believe that the week of Bugaboo’s “Christmas in July” celebration is nearly over!  Here is my entry for Day 6- Photo Challenge. There were so many card options since the photo is crammed full of Christmas magic! The item that caught my attention was the teddy bear in the highchair. I dug through my stamps and digis and found this cute bear and two sentiments in my collection of wood mount stamps and created a card that is almost a CAS!  
·   Front Image and “Beary Christmas” Sentiment are both from Printworks Stamps (company is out of business)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Inside Sentiment- “'Tis the Season” from Azadi Earles (company is out of business)
·   Sparkly Santa Hat sticker- Hobby Lobby
·   Assorted background paper, corrugator and strip of ribbon from my stash

I wanted to make another card for the Outlawz Sunday Challenge “Boots Are Made For Walking.” Well… the boot on my card is made for splashing! I used a template I’ve had in my files for many years to make this colorful shape card. I added a cute rabbit that looks like he is doing some major splashing, thanks for a few scraps of vellum that I colored on the underside with blue markers then trimmed to create a puddle and splashes. A few touches of white gel pen bring the splashes to life!
·   Digi- Lili Of The Valley (Spring Bunny Daffs)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Rain Boot template and Front Sentiment from Whimsie Doodles (company is out of business)
·   Inside Sentiment- “Life Is An Adventure “ from Buddly Crafts (Sugar & Spice Sentiments)
·   Assorted background papers and vellum from my stash

My final card this post was created for the Power Poppy Creative Confetti challenge named “Rock the Mojo.” My card is a pretty close to the original design and layout, especially since the digi I used is also very similar to the original. I love the results!
