Christmas in July for Edwin

I've gotten lazy the last month or so and haven't kept up with trying to do one Christmas card per week. But I've been inspired this week, by all the Christmas in July challenges that are out there.

I dug out my neglected Edwin and ornament stamps from Magnolia. I don't actually think I've ever used the ornament, so I'm glad I used it today.

I used on of the Tuesday Morning sketches (#2) for the layout. Tuesday Morning sketch challenge this week was to use one of the sketches from the past year in honor of their one year celebration.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches: sketch from the past year (#2)
Christmas All Year Long (week 32): stitching (the long panels are stitched in place)
ABC Christmas Challenges: O is for ornament, with added gloss and shine (on the boots)

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia Edwin with Star and Ornament
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI ssw, SU Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
Embellishments: copics, stickles, sakura glitter pen, sewing machine, MM brads, SU ribbon, PTI buttons, nestabilities snowflake die cuts, MS snowflake punch, SU top note die
