Christmas in July

I hope the weekend is going well, I can't believe it's Sunday evening already, where has the time gone??  As it has gone so quick I am a tad late with my DT card for Sentimental Sundays but it is still Sunday so it could have been worse lol.  This week our challenge is "Christmas in July" (+sentiment), HOORAY I hear you shouting, a chance to make a start on those Christmas creations :o)  We are sponsored by Dilly Beans & were lucky enough to get to chose an image to work with.  I chose this cute "Penguin in Scarf" & coloured him with ProMarkers.  I used some strips of digi papers (I have been trying to think of ways to use my scraps & I like the effect I think I will do this more).  I inked & added Glamour Dust to the edges of the image& finished off with a padded tree embellishment, die cut corners, digi greeting and a pompom.

The challenges:
Holly Jolly - Christmas Outdoors
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
Sparkle - Snowflakes
Delightful - Celebrate with Glitter Bling & Sparkly things
Creative Belli - Christmas
Cut It Up - Christmas in July
Dilly Beans - Glitter & Jewels
Addicted to CAS - Glitter

Thanks for looking & I hope you will join us :o) xxx
