Some Peppermint Christmas!

I'm enjoying some Christmas in July this month!  Great way to mentally cool down and get ahead for the holidays!    

Conie Fong has so many adorable digi bundles for Christmas/holiday projects and Molly's Winter Friends is just perfect for some winter/holiday crafting:  Christmas, anniversaries, birthdays, or just saying hello!  

I've teamed up this lovely duo with a background from Conie Fong called Fairytale Cottage Background Scene.  I enlarged the scene and then cropped to fit my card.  This made it perfect for a winter scene turning the stones into clumps of snow and such.  I made the bushes/brush into holly bushes and added white gel snow.  I also used a white gel pen to cover the black lines, so the snow was consistent.

Be sure to visit the the Conie Fong FB Page for challenges and images:  Conie Fong FaceBook Challenge.  There are different challenges: one for coloring and one for completed projects! 

 Material List:  
 Paper from stash
Copic Markers
White Gel Pen
I'm sending this off to the following challenges:

12 Months of Christmas:  AG Christmas card
Crafty Gals Corner:  Christmas in July
Water Cooler:  Occasions
Colour Crazy:  AG Hand Coloured
Jingle Belles:  Inspired by a Christmas Story ~ Frosty the Snowman!  I watched it every year as a kid!  Now the hilarious part is, my sister and I always talk about the Norelco razor commercial that sponsored the show!  Now, if you remember this too and want to relive that commercial, here it is on YouTube!  Norelco Ad!
