Christmas in July?!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week!
I am also so happy I found a little time this afternoon to sneak away to my craft room....I miss my crafting and my bloggy friends!

Today, I have a Christmas card to share with you! Yup, crazy ha? I decided to pull out my Christmas supplies and join in a few challenges going on! Maybe I will even start making a few a week so I can get ahead of schedule since I have everything out~anyone else make Christmas cards in the summer?
I used a lot of Jaded Blossoms stamps and dies on this cutie!
I started with an olive colored card base and the base layer using Jaded Blossoms Card Mat Dies. The next layers are created with the Scallop Square Dies and I embossed the white layer with the spots folder. The pattern paper is from MME~Christmas and Teresa Collins~Noel collection.
The sweet little deer is Kadoodle Bug Designs~Cutie KaToodles~Rudy Deer and cut on my Cameo. I pieced it together and added a little doodling. I added a yummy bow using 3 Girl JAM~Holly Berry crinkle ribbon and a fun tag. The tag is a Mini Tag Die and the sentiment is stamped with the Christmas Wishes stamp set.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Jaded Blossoms July Challenge~Crafter's Choice
2.) Sweet Stamps Challenge#230 Christmas Traditional Colors
3.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday #160 Christmas in July
4.) 3 Girl JAM July Challenge~Anything Goes w/ribbon
5.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday



  1. Your reindeer is so super duper cute Sherrie,I love the papers and the scalloped squares they were gone when I ordered I saw it on FB- I got my stamps today and some tickets Yeah!!
