Christmas in July!


So, Christmas in July seemed to be the challenge choice of many this week! This card features a retired TAC set, "Tropical Snowmen". I couldn't think of anything more fitting than a bikini clad snowlady for a July Christmas theme! Hope she makes you giggle - cheeks are colored with Tombow markers, bikini and hat are paper pieced.
I will enter this card here:

Adorable card, love the snowlady with her paper pieced bikini on and I'm guessing she puts LOTS of sunscreen on being that she's white as a ghost :-) Thanks for joining us at Stampotique Designer's Challenge this week.

Don't think I've ever seen a snowman in a bikini before. ;) What a unique and fun card this is. I really like the paper piecing you did matching her suit to the background. Lovely ribbon and poinsettia, too. Thanks for joining us this week in the Tea Room.
