52 {C}CT: Christmas In July Blog Hop

Hello hello hello, my friends! Yes.... I am terribly excited to welcome you to the 52 {Christmas} Card Christmas in July Blog Hop. If you've arrived here from Mynn's blog, you are on the right track! If you haven't and want to participate for a chance to win honours and/or prizes, please go back to the original hop post and follow along with us! Come and take a peek at the creations I made using our prompts for the month!

This month we have 4 weekly prompts but for this Blog Hop we're playing ALL of them for the entire month! Head on over to the original hop post and see what you need to do to win.

Here's my card based on our Sketch prompt for the month:

The patterned paper is from Papermania Signature Christmas A4 pad.

This lovely image is from Chocolate Baroque's Family Christmas.
I coloured it with Graph'It and Promarkers. 3 blue bling for some
festive sparkle. 

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the same set.
A few challenges for this card:

Festive Friday #35: Photo Inspiration - pressies under the tree
Jingle Belles: Shopping Our Stash - paper (3yrs), stamps (2 yrs), bling (2 yrs)
CHNC Extra July: AG Christmas
Completely Christmas #19: AG Christmas
Brown Sugar #101: AG
Simply Create #65: Christmas In July
CHNC #184: Make Your Mark - alcohol markers

Thank you for coming by to leave a comment! Don't forget--hop along with us starting at the original 52CCT post for multiple chances to win honours and prizes! Your next stop will be Danielle! Merry hopping!

Beijinhos!
