Christmas in July - Sketch challenge at Catch the bug - warm winter wishes

Sunday July 14, 2013
Well did you have a blast seeing all the lovely cards on the blog hop yesterday? I sure hope you did and got to leave some love and get some great ideas. Remember this is a whole week of fun at Catch the bug and today we have a sketch challengeJust make your card and post to the Catch the bug site.

 This is the card I made for the sketch provided. It's going to be great getting my Christmas cards made and done in time this year. I hope the sketch inspires you to make a Christmas card and get a start if you haven't already. It did feel weird pulling out my stash of Christmas papers in July when it's pretty warm out. But it was fun to see a different mix of colors/papers.
I used the digi Winter Circle Sentiment -Warm Wishes. I think it's a nice warm card, it will be perfect for the winter.
Remember if you play along at Catch the bug you can possibly win some awesome digi's. And also remember that the store has 50% off, so head over and grab your favorites. You will be seeing a lot of images this week so there will be lots of images to choose from.
