Tickled Pink Stamps Christmas Challenge #5 - Christmas in July (Anything Goes)



It's Christmas in July over at Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges! A new month means a new holiday challenge and this time it's Anything Goes for Challenge #5. We are changing the challenge timing a bit, though, and it will now begin on the 1st Tuesday of the month (which is actually the 1st Monday here in the US due to the time difference). All the rest of the rules remain the same - you MUST use a Tickled Pink Stamps image to participate (these include the Lil Lads and Lil Lolitas, Lil Pinkettes, Pink Pets, and Cherrie) and you have until the end of the month to play along. Plus we'll be reminding you mid-month with some more fabulous samples from the design team so you don't forget! If you want to see what the rest of the {PINK} Challenge ladies created for this challenge then be sure to visit the TPSC Christmas challenge page here!

My card uses Lil Christmas Lad Luca. He reminds me so much of Ebenezer Scrooge! And so that it where I got the "time" concept from since Scrooge was shown his past, present, and future Christmases. Tim Holtz is the man when it comes to hardware and I have loaded this card up with it! The timepiece, game spinners, word stick, and sprocket gear are all from his collection. The paper is Ski Slope designer series paper from Stampin' Up that I've had for years, have used sparingly, and absolutely love! The sketch is from a fantastic new blog I found called Deconstructing Jen. This is The Deconstructed Sketch 8 (DS8).

Today is the 4th of July here in the US. So that means a day off from work for me! I get to spend it with my small man and I'm not sure what we'll get up to. Maybe relaxing at home, maybe some swimming, and definitely some crafting! Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day, wherever you are and whatever you do! XX
