Christmas in July!!!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Yes, you read that's time for Christmas in July over at The Paper Players!

Look at this fun challenge from Sandy:

I really have to say this is one of my all time favorite challenges EVER! I had SO many ideas, but I had to go with this fun combination of dies:

I decided Santa works so hard he needs to take off his suit and go FISHIN' That suit is just way too hot for July weather, and up here everyone is out on the lakes every chance they can get!

The cute Santa suit, hat and sign are from Cheery Lynn and the sun is from Lawn Fawn. I backed it all on some patterned fishing paper I have had for years. Perfect for this project!

I hope you will join us for this fun challenge!

Oh my goodness Laurie, I have never seen a card so perfect for this challenge!!! I love it all: the paper, the Santa suit and fishing line - this is just the cutest. PERFECT!!!

Love this, Laurie. It made me laugh out loud. Guess in our neck of the woods it would have to be "gone ice fishing" if this card had been in December and not July. Wonderful take on the challenge

Laurie, what a great card. The clothes line with Santa's clothes and fishing dies is brilliant. Love the colors and all the layers.
