Well, hello to all of you who have hot weather at Christmas. This challenge is dedicated to YOU! The challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' this month is A TROPICAL CHRISTMAS.
This image is by Bugaboo and I've found they have many digital stamps that are for tropical winters. I've used them on previous cards...see here and here. I like these images since I live in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona USA where we don't have traditional winter weather of ice and snow. I used a palm tree die by Sizzix and a Sizzlit die of a plumeria flower. The tickets in the corner are a die with matching stamp set by Whimsy. My paper is by Stampin' Up.
My Santa has gotten a bit of a sunburn although he did put sunscreen on his nose. No one realizes how strong the sun is in the winter time, including Santa! I used WOW! glitter on his beard and a touch of Star Dust Stickles on the water. My Santa believes this is the most wonderful time of the year as he sits backs and floats around in his tropical paradise.
Our sponsor this month is The Hobby House who has donated a £10.00 voucher to their store. The Design Team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' have made some outstanding examples of our challenge topic A TROPICAL CHRISTMAS for you. Please take a look at them and perhaps you will be inspired to join this challenge!
