Christmas in July

Don't know about you, but it sure doesn't feel like Christmas where I live. But with the new challenge at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie, it's time to get in the Christmas mood. This time, the challenge has two sponsors: Cute as a Button and Limited Runs. So join the fun and get a jump on your Christmas crafting. Just make a project inspired by the cookies:

My card uses a Hampton Arts set I picked up at Michaels for cheap in the after-Christmas clearance. I love the little Santa and matching die. I decided to do repeated stamping of the HO HO HO, and put one in red to really highlight it.

My card is for these challenges
July Rudolph Days -- anything Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge #343 -- anything Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra Challenge -- anything Christmas
HLS July Christmas Challenge -- use a die
Die Cut Divas -- Christmas in July
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #292 -- anything goes
