Sunny Christmas!

Good morning, we're well into July now and it's time you got started on those Christmas makes...ou know how fast it will creep up on us now! There's a new challenge starting at Christmas At Sweet Sweet Stampin' and although it's an anything goes challenge we like to give you a theme to spark your creativity (and ours!) this month the optional theme is 'Christmas in the sun'. Have to admit I was a bit flummoxed at snow or snowflakes...sun? what? Then I saw some of the creations from my team...they are such a clever lot! I was inspired to think outside the box and make this card, using a fun digi from the much missed Kenny K. The reindeer are wearing sunglasses...perfect! I gave them some waves to splash in beneath that bright sun! 
If you want to see the amazing creations from the rest of the DT just hop on over to the Challenge Blog, I'm sure you'll love them as much as I do, and I hope you'll be inspired to think outside the box and play along this month!
On a personal note my 4th granddaughter is due to be born  today...fingers crossed she doesn't keep us waiting too much longer, can't wait to meet her...and neither can her Mummy!!!
Thanks for visiting

LOL! Your dancing reindeer are definitely celebrating their time away from the north pole! The detail in your coloring is amazing, Chris, and the fact that they can dance on the water makes me laugh. Loving the layers of water, and the way "ho ho ho" fits in the middle section. A GREAT sunny card! hugs, de
