CHRISTMAS IN JULY ???..... BLEH !

Good morning Peeps - the weekend is just around the corner :-D
It's bloomin' hot again out there today so I am playing down in my craft room, with my poor little sweaty puppy flaked out beside me !!! :-)

I was seeing a lot of Christmas in July challenges, so I decided to get some of my Chrimbo cards ready !

Here is my first - I used "Merry Christmas Polar Bear " from SPYDER. I flipped him and printed twice to make a card for my friend to send from UK to Oz.
As you can see - the Ozzie bear has a bit of a tan and a slightly sunburnt skin cuz they will be having Summer at Christmas time.



I coloured the Polars with Promarker pens and added a little watercolour beach behind the Ozzie one. The UK one has Stickles on his snowflakes. I fussy cut a teeny map of Oz and UK and mounted them with foamies, along with a senti. :-D

Thanks for stopping by - I am colouring up some more Chrimbo schtuff :-D

Challenges I am entering:

Fab n Funky Challenge #269 - No Patterned Papers
Whimsy Stamps Challenge #85 - Christmas in July 
Scrap Creations Challenge - Christmas in July
Cards In Envy Challenge - Christmas in July **Mailbox Showcase Winner**
Crafty Boots Challenge - Christmas in July

I love the duality of this card, it is a great idea to give it two very different backgrounds. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
