Ice Cream Christmas

Hello Everyone,
This time around I bring you a Christmas card with a bit of a difference.  You see for people like myself who live in the southern hemisphere – our Christmas is definitely not full of Snow, roaring fireplaces and Cold.  We are preparing for Sunny Weather, maybe some Rain and being able to Swim and eat Ice Cream on Christmas Day.  So I decided to create a card that reflects my Southern Christmas.

This card was created using an image I had in my stash which I stamped on watercolour paper this time around and got out my little used watercolour pencils.  After this was complete I used my Cuttlebug to cut out a circle of white paper to make the tree background and a layer of burgundy red paper using my scalloped die.  The reindeer paper is another from my stash of Christmas papers which is thankfully shrinking 🙂

Sometimes I like to make cards like this that reflect what our Christmas will involve. With picnics, swimming and going to the beach being planned for our holidays and of course seeing our family.  But of course we will not forget the real reason for this wonderful season – the Birth of our Saviour Jesus.

This card was made for the following challenges

Christmas Cards All Year Round – December = Holiday Cards

and

Shopping Our Stash Challenge – I like to Move it

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation.  And as always I would love to leave you with this thought before you go:
A Christmas Blessing
Have a Happy Crafty Fun Filled Kind of Day
My Name

  1. Both cards you entered are terrific– but I have to say, I really enjoy reading about your perspective of the holiday from the southern hemisphere! Love the ice cream truck! Thank you for joining us at SOS last challenge– come see us again!
