Christmas in July! SSS13, CCC49

Today I have one card, and another of the baby shower prizes to show you, as well as my new "Pride and Joy". I will start with the card. I created this for 2 different challenges. The sketch is from the Sweet Stop Challenge, and there was a twist...hence the Christmas in July. Check it out HERE to see the sketch. The Cupcake Craft Challenge this week was also to create a Christmas card. So here is what I came up with.

I used a white CS base, and layered red and green. I used the eyelet boarder punch to create the scalloped look. I just purchased some new holiday DSP, but none of them went well with the stamp I wanted to use, so I created my own. I used the little snowflake from the TAC PWP set Swirly Seasons. This is a brand new set from the new Angel Company catalog. If you purchase $30 worth of anything from the catalog, you can purchase one of the "Purchase with purchase" sets for $2.95. There are good amount of them to choose from too! The tree is from the retired TAC set Seasonal Cuties...which happens to be on sale right now for a short period of time. I just love this set, and was so sad when they retired it. I added some crystal stickles to the tree, and the little Christmas tree brads to the corner.
My next project tonight was another shower prize. Here it is...

I wanted to make a post-it note holder, but decided I didn't' want a desktop one. So I found this frame at my local craft store, and went with it. It is a 4x6 magnetic frame. The stamp is from one the TAC April '09 SOTM set. I am just hitting all the retired or unavailable sets tonight...ha ha. The DSP is from SU...just using up some papers I have. I colored the image with the aqua painter and the ink pads. I hand wrote the "Notes" sentiment. I attached everything with sticky strip to get a good strong adhesive. The pen is just a 1"x3" piece of DSP to match. I attached the pen with some white ribbon.

The last thing I wanted to share with you tonight is my new "Pride and Joy". My husband and I just bought this lovely 30 foot camper!

We are keeping it at our property in the country. Since it is like 7500 lbs., and our minivan just can't tow that...lol. It is such a wonderful upgrade from our pop-up! We like to spend the night down there with our girls, and now we even have a BATHROOM! Can you tell I am excited? There is so much room for our family in there.

Well that is it for today. I am really looking forward to my big trip next weekend. My mom and I are going to CHA! I am just crazy excited to go. I am going to try to get some photos, and hopefully lots of make and takes that I will be able to share with you. Thanks so much for stopping by.
