Merry Little Christmas

Another slight detour from my thank you cards today for a Christmas in July challenge. I wanted to participate in the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge and wish them a happy 8th birthday celebration this month. I wasn't able to get anything made last week for the challenge since we had family home all week so I wanted to be sure to get something in this week. Happy Birthday to TMS! Not only do they have a sketch this month bt they also have a theme. This week it's Christmas in July.


I used the TMS sketch as inspiration and chose the Merle image from Beccy's Place. I just love him tangles in all the lights. I die cut him with Gina Marie Designs Cross Stitch Rectangles. I cut four pieces of candy paper from my scrap box with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags and glued them to my green card stock base. I have a new Christmas set from Altenew called Halftone Holidays. I got the matching dies so you can die cut Christmas and Season with this set. Then there are a bunch of little sentiments that you can add. So I added one of those to my card. I finished yup be coloring and adding a heart for embellishment. I really like this one!
I am entering these challenges:
The twins and their parents are coming for dinner tonight so I need to get myself in gear and get dinner going. I'll close with another picture of them. Thanks for stopping by.

Donna, that giraffe is so adorable and great take on the sketch. Looks like they are both teething the way they are chewing on those spoons, hehe.

Goodness those kids are cute, and growing fast too! I bet you and your hubby are having lots of fun with them, it's a lovely age.
Your card is fantastic Donna, well done. I really like the "Christmas" sentiment across the front of the card, the white outline really makes it pop. I also like the cute little heart at the top. You've done an great job interpreting the sketch.
Cheers,
Beccy
