Christmas in July

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It is so hot and humid here in Pittsburgh. This is a perfect time to create a Christmas card. Not that I am looking to rush through our summer season. It seemed like forever before it arrived.

This card I made for my guest design spot on the Cleary iStamp Blog.


Any type of crafty project is allowed as long as it meets the theme.

Dates: July 19 (10 am) – Aug 1 (11 pm) Central Time

Prize: $10 gift code to Clearly Digi Stamps for digital stamps. If you use a CDS stamp you will be entered into the drawing twice.

There will also be a Top 3 award!

Winners Announced: Wednesday Aug 7th at 10 am (central time)

My card is using the Angels digital image. I paper pieced her dress and gave her a pretty red Christmas outfit. On her wings I used Flower Soft and colored her face, hair, gloves and trumpet with prismacolor pencils.

I placed her in an outdoor scene. My designer paper is from Echo Park. The hill, tree and sentiment are all dies from PaperTrey Ink. I added some glitter on the hills to complete my card.

Hope you can play along with us. Well that's it for me for today. So until next time..........God bless.
