Christmas in August

Another hot, muggy day in the South! On a day like today I'm ready for "Let It Snow!" So bring on Christmas! Four challenges this week had the theme "Christmas in August." I embossed the reindeer with gold embossing powder and stamped Happy Holidays in gold ink. I used Creative Memories cutting system to cut the plain circles, and Nesties to cut and emboss the scalloped circles. Then I punched around the edges with a small hole punch. I used my new MS "Arch Lattice" punch for the side border. Pop dots were adhered under the center medallion and the holly. CS, DP, holly stamp, and ribbon are Hobby Lobby. Remaining stamps are Stampology Rhinestones are Kaiser Scrapbook. The "Christmas in August" challenges are: 1. Our Creative Corner 2. Creative Card Crew 3. Simon Says 4. Dutch Dare 5. Cute Daisy May -Use a "Word" on your card
