Sundays with Crissy ~ Christmas in July


Hello!   I hope you are having a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.  This week at  Sundays with Crissy we are celebrating Christmas in July!        

This adorable little girl is available as a digi image from Wags ‘n Whiskers, illustrated by Crissy Armstrong and titled Sweet Danni and Bella.   She seems to have a vintage feel, in my opinion ~ so, I tried to distress the card to match with inks and my distresser tool.   Did you notice the REAL ribbon and bow on her dress?   Yup, I have way too much fun with these images!!  LOL



I know it’s a little hard to think about Christmas cards in the middle of July when the temps outside are soaring . . .  but if you take a peek at the always amazing creations from Crissy’s Crew at the Sundays with Crissy challenge blog,  I know you’ll be blown away and definitely in the spirit of Christmas!    As I always say, I feel very honored to be working with such a SUPER talented group of ladies.   This challenge will run through August 14th, so you have plenty of time to join.   And, our sponsor is the awesome Whimsy Stamps!


Happy Sunday!

    Your stamp Sweet Danni and Bella is so darling, sweet & precious indeed! Danni’s dress looks like its velvet due to your great touch with the Copics. The ribbon sash makes that velvet dress ready for the party!! Absolutely lovely!
