Christmas in July Challenge

I'm really looking forward to going out tonight with the girls for our monthly crafty night. The challenge this time for our local stamper's group is Christmas in July. I have a hard time making Christmas cards in general - let alone in July! I was going to put on some Xmas music just to get in the spirit to make this while drinking some Hot Spiced Mulled Cider, but unfortunately I don't have any apple cider right now. :( So, instead I just decided to take a look at some old Mojo Monday sketches and I saw this one that caught my eye. I found some Xmas themed paper and off I went to get to work.

I chose to use this past Mojo Monday sketch for my card. You can find lots of Julee Tilman's other past sketches for inspiration here.
Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
