It's Christmas in July at Ike's World Challenge Blog

 While December 25th  is still a few months away, here in the States we celebrate Christmas in July because that's when the stores start selling ornaments, decorations and holiday lights. I kid you not, I went to Hobby Lobby and they were clearancing out their summer items to make room for their Christmas inventory!!
Well, Ike's World Challenge Blog has a new challenge this fortnight, and it is Christmas in July, crafters' style. Create a card, canvas, layout or other artsy project with Christmas in mind for your chance to win a gift certificate to Ike's Art Store.
I got to play with a digital image called Christmas Pixie. I love coloring her up in Christmas colors and decorating my cards with her. It's one of my favorite images! Did I mention that if you use an Ike's Art image, you get double chances of winning.AND Ike always offers a FREEBIE at the start of each new challenge. Why don't you check out the blog and double your chances of winning?!
Whatever you do this week, have fun!
Challenges I am Entering:
Catch the Bug - Christmas in July Tuesday BINGO grid (I chose the bottom line going across)
Holly Jolly Christmas challenges - Inspired by a Song  ("Have a Holly Jolly Christmas")
Crafty Boots challenges - Christmas in July
Get Creative challenges - Celebrations
Doodle Pantry - Anything digital image Goes
