TSG ~ Christmas in July

Hello All -

Okay I had to redo my post! I put the wrong date on the schedule. I was reading Facebook and read that my friend Craft Math Chick (Meredith) made a project late last night and realized she put one of her states backwards and had to redo the whole project. I was editing my card I was looking at it it looked funny...the nestie cut out is backwards! There is no fixing this...I have a brad going through it, and dimensionals on the back - it would make a serious mess!! It was hot, I was watching a Lifetime movie and crying - you know how they are - and I just missed it! But I love my card anyway.

With all that said...This week, our challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetters! That's right stampers, and TSG Fans, it's Christmas in July!! Use any Christmas themed stamps or papers on your card or project! Let's all get a jump start on our holiday projects!! 

For my card today I used Penguin Pals. I hadn't inked up this set yet and although I am not a big person on this tradition I have to say I really enjoyed coloring up this darling little penguin. I have a couple of other projects to share with this same set later this week. I used Sketchbook Saturday for my layout. I did put a sentiment on the's on the side along with a stamped and colored candy cane. I ran out of battery on the camera!! 
To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project with the Christmas in July theme, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (July 23). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery.

What a sweet Christmas card! This would make me smile if I opened this up at the Holidays! So so cute! (for the record you can't tell)

I love all the elements and papers! Perfect approach to the sketch!

Great Christmas card. Love that die you've used to frame up this image and of course your coloring looks wonderful

Sometimes I purposely read those kind of books just to get the good cry, you know? It's therapeutic. No wonder you missed it with the blurry tearing eyes - but I never would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it! Love this cutie-pie penguin and that gorgeous poinsettia!
