Crazy for Christmas!

Good Monday morning everyone!!! Can you believe it is the last Monday of July already?! That means we are less than 5 months away from Christmas!! Yikes!!!!!
Are ya ready for a new challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented DS Sister Jayne is our hostess for this week and she has challenged us with 'Christmas In July' as our theme!! And you can use any Cricut cartridge, too!!! Now how about that?!! I always try to make the Grands a Christmas card even if I don't get any made for anyone else. So I am glad to be able to get another done. I made a 6x6 card so I could cut my Oscar The Grouch bigger. I cut him at 3.5 inches. I had to give him a little bit of sparkle, so I used some Diamond Stickles on his Santa hat. I glossy accented his tongue. The sentiments are from the 'Christmas Joy' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I added some Solid Maraschino twine from The Twinery and made a little bow with some of the twine. I attached my sentiment under the bow area. The bg paper came from my stash. My guess is that I got it at Hobby Lobby at some point. To finish off my card, I put Oscar on an action wobble!!! Yes I did!! I so love these things!!!
Why don't cha head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the creations that my DT Sisters have made for some inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! And while you are there, check out the rules for our challenges in the sidebar. Then head on into your crafty space and make a project following our theme 'Christmas In July' and then link it by Sunday, August 4th. We so love it when you join in on our fun. Looking forward to seeing what you make!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
Oscar Loves To Wobble!!!
