"Winter Mail"

Good Morning Everyone! Happy 4th of July to everyone in the states! I hope your weekend has been awesome! Ours has been kinda of up and down! But for the most part it has been wonderful! We will be heading to the fireworks tonight! Yay! I am so excited about going, as a kid we never went to see them! So as an adult, I am just like a kid... OOOOHHHH.... AAAAAHHHH... Look at that! LOL!

Anyways, the creation that I am going to share with you today, is just the opposite! LOL! It is winter time! This creation is serving a double purpose! So that means more images for you to see as, I did a step by step kinda thing! 

The new Get Hippity With Ippity Challenge starts today at The Latte Lounge! The theme is "Christmas In July"! How COOL is that? LOL! (Nice play on words, huh?) The Ippity Stamp Set that I used to create my own background paper is "Season Of Joy"! (Isn't it awesome?) For all the details of the "Christmas In July Challenge" you can find them in the Get Hippity With Ippity Group at The Latte Lounge! You MUST be a member of The Latte Lounge and The Get Hippity With Ippity Group in order to take part in the challenge!

The second purpose for this card is The Latte Lounge July Month Long Challenge! Bet you can't guess what the theme is? ... Yep, you guessed "Christmas In July"! See how COOL we all think? LOL! So for Week 1, we are asking you to show us all of your Christmas Themed Cards and Projects! We all are thinking ahead to Christmas time when we need to have all those cards made! This way we all get a head start! (I definitely need the head start, as I normally send out about 50 to 60 cards! Isn't that just nuts? But who do cut off the list?)  Oooops, got side tracked again! LOL!

Now a bit about the beautiful image that I used... It is by The Stamping Boutique called "Mail Girl"! Isn't she just adorable? I had so much fun creating this card! By the way, you MUST be a member of The Latte Lounge in order to take part in the monthly challenge. Okay... I have kept you long enough, I will go ahead and get you my material list and send you on your way...
