The Presents were wrapped.... - Simon Says Stamp DT

It's time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamp, and this week our challenge is Christmas in August. WOW, I know here it is WAYYYY to hot to even think about Christmas time, but it was fun breaking out my Christmas papers and getting in the mood. I chose this adorably cute Greeting Farm image, Amelia from the Surprise set, which is brand new, just released a few days ago. The set is actually a Birthday set, but I thought she looked fantastic as a Christmas stamp too, isnt she adorable!!!

  11. Oh Becca! You just made my whole day. I came home from work with a headache today and I finally had enough in my bank account to splurge on the new Greeting Farm stamps. Shortly after I was feeling bad for having spent the money, but now I see I made wise choice as this is just perfect for a Christmas card. OMWord, I love your coloring and the fact that you share your colors. I hope you don't mind if I CASE it in the future. Hugs, Lisa G

  12. Will she come to my door, too, to deliver some of those promising packages??

  13. Lovely card, and as you say; this image can easely be used for christmas.
