Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a super-fun card for the July Rudolph Days challenge over at Scrappy Mo's.  I have been trying to get this card blogged for the last several days and now it is the deadline so......here it is!!  lol....

I had some old Stampendous flocked snowflake stickers in my stash that needed to be used.  I thought they'd look good on a simple red background.  I received this adorable Christmas sloth in a set from the sweet and generous Holley Barnhart.  (THANKS, Holley!!!)  I wasn't sure how the sloth stamp would look in red ink, but I LOVE it!!  What do you think?


Supplies used include:
Stampendous - Class A'Peel Velvet Snowflake Stickers (retired)
Pebbles - Cozy & Bright stamp set
Versafine ink in Satin Red
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set - retired
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Oval STAX die set (apparently retired)
Scraps from my stash for mats and frames

Hope you liked this whimsical sloth Christmas card!  Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Stay safe in the hot weather if you are in the Northern half of the globe.  Here in my part of Idaho, we haven't had more than a few drops of rain in a couple of months and thunderstorms are predicted for the next four days. Eek! My family is packing Go Bags, in case we need to evacuate suddenly.  I would appreciate your prayers for safety from fire!  Thank you.

Hi, Friends.....

I am such a total lame brain anymore!!  I was so busy getting ready for my vacation for our 40th wedding anniversary to Yellowstone that I forgot to draw the winner to my Christmas Stencil Giveaway!!!  I was hunting in my stash for something to make for Rudolph Days and spied that stencil still sitting there......(face plant!)  Will someone just shoot me and put me out of my misery now, pleeeeeeeze!!!   

So, finally......with the help of random dot org.....the lucky winner is:

Valerija

Congratulations!!  I will email you because it has been so long now that you probably are not checking for a winner notification anymore.   So sorry about that!  

Thank you to everyone who left comments and to those who also entered my drawing.
