Christmas in July

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called CHRISTMAS IN JULY and we want to see your best vintage, shabby chic or primitive Christmas cards.  After all the heat many of us have been suffering through, making a Christmas card might make us think cooler.

We have a returning sponsor this week.  Sassy Cheryl's has the most wonderful images suitable for a primitive style and will be providing one random winner with a $5 gift certificate to her store.  The random winner will also receive a winner's badge from Sugar Creek Hollow to display.

The Design Team will choose their Top Pick and that creator will receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Pixie Dust Studio - Christmas
Shelly's Images - Christmas in July
Creative Belli - Christmas in July
Flourishes - Christmas in July
Party Time Tuesday's - Christmas in July
Get Hippity with Ippity - Christmas in July
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Christmas in July
