I'm Dreaming of Christmas

Today it is 106 degrees in Redlands, way too hot for my liking! My favorite season is Fall but I also love Christmas and all of the decorations, lights, and spirit of the season. I am looking forward to putting out my fall decoration soon and then replacing them with Christmas decor.

Today I thought I would share this Christmas card that I made for an organized swap for convention. When I saw the Dasher stamp in the under $10 section in the SU! Idea Book & Catalog I knew I needed to have it on my first order. Why would I need a Christmas stamp in July? I have no idea, but I got it anyway. It came in handy when I decided at the last minute to be involved in the swap. I chose not to go completely traditional with the colors but I had to include Real Red and the beautiful Real Red Polka-dot Ribbon. If you know me, you'll understand that I have a thing for polka-dots! I have been trying to convince Eric that Malachi will need the brown, baby blue, and cream polka-dot stroller & play pen but he is convinced that I only like the products because of the polka-dots. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little taste of Christmas on this hot August day.

Products Used:
Dasher Stamp Item #116816 $8.95, Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, and Whisper White Card Stock, Chocolate Chip Ink Pad, 3/4" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, SU! Texturz Plate Backgrounds 1, Big Shot, Sanding Blocks.

I have to add Dasher to my next order. I think it is a great card and I love that I got to receive one at Convention! Oh and yes you need the Polka-Dot Stroller and Play pen for Malachi. Kaylee and I both thank so. Kaylee also wanted to add the brown and blues are the best two colors for a boy. Enjoy your weekend, Tonya and Kaylee
