Christmas in July....no peeking!

Well maybe just a little peek....there's no harm in that! I have a ton of new Christmas stamps to play with so I wanted to show you just a peek of what is hitting the farm this week.
This stamp is a new BIG set in the Rummage Bin line called "Night Before Christmas".

Now only in Christmas fairy tale land would you have 4 children sleeping peacefully in bed. LOL! I thought this sentiment from this set was especially clever...yeah right, no peeking.

I had some of these vintage Melissa Frances papers kicking around and thought they went great with this vintage looking image. I stamped it in London Fog, I did this so that your eye would be drawn to the sentiment in black. A few touches of color with copics...yes a new one too R000 is wonderful!

I also played on the oval shape of the image, dragging out my coluzzle and the acrylic oval is one of the large fragments in the Tim Holtz set.
Stitching to finish the vintage look....yup, it is that time of year....get started on those Christmas projects early....it creeps up SO fast!
