Christmas in July

Hey everyone. Its another OWH Monday and I have a card that I made using Sketch #182. Onto the card:

For this weeks card, I decided to make a Christmas card. I used my usual polka dotted cardstock for the strips and red and two shades of green cardstock for the rest of the card. I also placed an Imaginisce stamp on it. The stamp was colored with markers and popped up on dimensionals.
It's a pretty simple card but I really like the way it came out. I've been wanting to use the stocking stamp since I got it but could not find the proper project for it until today. I hope you liked this card. I may be back tomorrow with Swap Update Tuesday if I work on some swaps tomorrow.

To close up today, I'm going to write about some big news of the day. I am a big anglophile so I love Doctor Who, researching British Royalty and I spent a whole day watching the Royal Wedding in 2011. So today, I spent the day looking at a hospital door waiting for word of the birth of the Royal Baby. It was finally announced that the Duchess of Cambridge had given birth to a baby boy who weighs 8lb 6oz. I'm super excited and look forward to seeing the first photos of the baby and finding out his name. I'm sure he is beautiful. Just look at his parents and grandparents (Charles being the exception). I'll probably end up writing more about this tomorrow too.

In addition to the Royal Baby, there is a new Lady A baby too. I found out not that long ago that Hilary Scott of Lady Antebellum gave birth to a baby girl named Eisele Kaye. As you can tell, I'm also obsessed with celebrity babies. Congratulations to William and Kate on Royal Baby Boy and congrats to Hillary and her husband on little baby Eisele. That's it for today. TTFN Ta ta for now!


  1. Sometimes simple cards are the best! So glad you found a use for this adorable stocking stamp :)
    I watched tv today as well. Can't wait to hear what his name is!! Our family is awaiting another special birth--my first grandchild, due in August. She will be named Hannah. And she will be loved and (probably) spoiled.

  2. Oh, we both went with polka dots! Love your Teddy stocking addition! I also really like Lady Antebellum (even put them in my upcoming book); what a pretty baby name.

  3. Cute the polka dots! tfs!!!
