Ho Ho Ho Elf Kitty - Christmas in July


Hi, Friends......

I'm back with another Christmas in July card for you.....made from more items in my holiday stash box.  My crafty pal, Karen Ladd,  sent me this fun elf kitty tag last Christmas (THANKS, Karen!!) and I couldn't resist putting him on a card.  I didn't want anything too fussy for a background that would distract the eye from him, so I just used a Sparkle embossing folder and made a cute speech balloon for him.  I had this very ancient Ho Ho Ho confetti that I glued on for the sentiment.  I know this is a super-simple card, but I think it turned out cute and I hope you like it, too!

Supplies used include:
Elf Kitty tag
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
- (retired)
Sizzix - TH Texture Fades - Sparkles
Winnie & Walter - Sketchy Thoughts die set - (retired)
Confetti from stash

I have really gone crazy making Christmas in July cards this year.  Once I got going on those leftover odds and ends, I couldn't stop!!!  Right now it is too hot in my house and waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too hot outside to do much of anything I might as well do this, right?!  Thank you for stopping by today.  Stay cool and keep crafting!!
