Simon Says... Christmas in August!!!

Ok, I have to admit that I had a HARD time with this challenge - mentally! We had snow in JUNE, had a hot July and a rainy August. Before you know it, we will have snow again.....boooooooooo hooooooooooo!!!! The sucky part about living in Canada is that we have 2 seasons really.....winter and spring! LOL Ahhh seriously, it isn't that bad, you get used to the crazy weather!!!! I just hope this coming winter isnt' as LONG and as COLD as last year!!! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

So, our challenge this week is CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST!!! Make a card, layout, project, etc. with a Christmas theme! Link up your project at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog and you could be the lucky winner of a $25 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp!!!!! One lucky winner will be announced next Wed. so you better get creating!!! CAN'T wait to see what you create!!!! AND, it puts you one Christmas card ahead for this year!!!!

Here is my project:

I used Sitting Alva - a stamp from the Magnolia "Jingle Jangle" collection. I used some SU DP from who knows how long ago......but it all worked together & I liked it!!! I used a layout that was on a card on my bulletin board that my SBS4 sister gave me (HI DEB......hope your move went well...miss you!!) The sentiment is computer generated cuz I did not want to dig out all my Christmas stamps.....YET!!!!

Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week!!!! Merry Christmas in August!!! LOL

Thanks for stopping by!!!! Have a great rest of the week!!!!!
