DTC #64 - Christmas in June

Happy Tuesday everyone. This is going to be a super quick post as I have family visiting from overseas and I am keeping my internet times very limited.

This week our theme at digital tuesday, chosen by the amazing Anne-Marije is

Christmas in June.

I know I will be running behind again over the holidays so this was a great challenge for me, to get started early. I might actually try doing one holiday card a month until december so I can get done without too much of a rush.


My image is from a set from the D.A.I.S.I.E company that I purchased last year. There are quite a few christmas digis in this set, including a snowman and gingerbread house. It was pretty affordable too. I added some punched out branches to the image, cut out the bow and added it with a dimensional. I then sprayed it with some frost shimmerz. Sentiment is from stampin up.

I hope you'll join us this week at digital tuesday, Dustin Pike is our sponsor again this week, and one lucky winner will get a choice of 3 digis from his store.

And that is it for today.
Have a great day.
