Christmas in Arizona


This card is for the Totally Stampalicious Challenge - Christmas in July.  As soon as I saw this image I knew I wanted to use it.  When it snows here, if we happen to get enough snow to make a snowman, he usually doesn't last more than an afternoon.  It's nothing like the snowmen we used to be able to build in New Jersey.  I can't say I miss the snow, though.  No more shoveling or having to drive through blizzards.

This image is available here as a digi or here as a stamp.
The plaid paper is Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey.  The red paper is from Heidi Grace.  The cardstock is from Stampin' Up.

Copics:B000, B00, C00, C0, C1, C3, G05, G07, R11, R24, R27, YR09


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Robyn's Fetish  Christmas in July
Creative Inspiration Paint Christmas in July

The snowman is just too cute and I love the papers you choose to go with it. Last winter that's how our snowmen melted here in Iowa.
