Out of Season Challenge

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's time for a New Challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog - Out of Season.  Which means we want to see an out of season card or project, (does not include Halloween or Thanksgiving).  I think I could have a Christmas or Valentines with this one.

There is only 20 more Fridays before Christmas!!! YIKES.  Time to get started on those cards early.  I'm also starting my Christmas shopping early this year.  Not a lot but a few things I have found along the way.  And there are a few more things I've seen the boys go crazy for in my memory bank for next payday.   Over the years I have done both, waited til the last minute and shopped early.  I enjoy the season much more when I shop early.  Not that I have it all done by then, but it's much less of a chore then.  I tend to enjoy the Holly-Days more and I have money to enjoy the other seasonal activities then, lol. 
This card came together pretty fast.  I simply used my Blueprints one to do all the work for the card design and then I colored my snowman with C0 and C1, along with C3, C5, C7 and my heart with R24, R27, R29, the little scarf was colored with R83, R81.  I added some candy dots and Viola, all done.  I hope you like it. 
We are gearing up for back to school next week and the boys are both excited and both trying to squeeze in some last minute summer fun, lol. 
I hope to see your fabulous creations!  Be sure to check out the NEW ITEMS that Laura is adding to the store, I'm so excited!!!!
