Christmas Card #09

I was full of good intentions in January that I'd make at least one Christmas card a week .... just a tad behind then as this is only No#9!!
So this week's challenge at High Hopes is perfect to gee me on as it's
Christmas in July 
.. eek, how did it get to be July already!!

(play along with your High Hopes stamps to win a new one of your choice)

My card uses Getting Spruced Up and Think Snow
I've been getting very precious with my Copics (they've got to be so expensive to replace) but thought I'd treat myself for a change!  Almost wish I hadn't though as it was such a pleasure to use them LOL!
Some fine flower soft added as fur/snow.  I doodled my borders to match the font of the sentiment and added some wee stickles dots to pull in the red theme of my image.  White enamel dots for falling snow.

Other challenges:
Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge #30 - Christmas Tree
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra - July
Simon Says Stamp and Show ... anything goes
Merry Monday July challenge - anything Christmas
The Squirrel and the Fox #47 - Christmas in July
Cute Card Thursday #275 - fly like a bird (though of course, strictly speaking, penguins don't fly LOL)
