Christmas in August

Wow, it is hot again today!  Because of the heat, I didn't want to do my normal Sunday hilly ride. Instead, I just did a quick 55 minute loop.  Nice workout for a hot day.  The cold shower felt GREAT!

I wanted to participate in the CAS(E) this Sketch #136 this week.  I really like the sketch, as there are so many possibilities with this one.

I know it may seem a little early for Christmas, but I'm starting to get a little nervous, that I won't be ready with all of the cards.  So here is my first for the season.

I purchased this die awhile back and have been waiting for just the right moment to use it and here we go.

Actually a very simple card.  I stamped the sentiment and die cut the Christmas lights.  I colored the lights with Copic markers, adhered them with some glue and done!

  • Bazzill Card Stock:  Marshmallow, Peppermint
  • Versacolor Ink:  Satin Red
  • My Favorite Things:  Cheerful/Xmas Greeting
  • Penny Black:  Sparkle String Die


  1. Hello Susan: I love this fabulous card, the die is just amazing and you colored each one of this little Christmas lights beautifully.
    Fantastic interpretation of this sketch.
