Santa "Claws" is coming to town .....

Hi and welcome—I’m sharing a card today that I made for Karen Burniston’s monthly challenge. The theme for this month is "Homegrown Holidays" so I decided on "Christmas In July".  I’m so lucky that Karen allows me to guest design on a regular basis.  I love the challenges and have fun figuring out different ways to use her great dies.  I usually have a tutorial but this time I’m just going to show the finished card because I’m not at home.  Mac and I are on our annual RV trip and currently in Canada enjoying a tour of the Maritimes. 
I've used Rocky The Crab on the beach in the Adirondack Chair wearing his Santa hat and holding a Christmas gift.  I decorated the palm trees with lights and bulbs.  Rocky is quite the festive Santa "Claws".

Merry Christmas in July!

  7. Given we've had grey skies and drizzle for most of the summer so far, a tropical Christmas looks really tempting! What a great card.
