Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I hope your week has been going well for you.  My week has just flown by.  I've been busy playing with the new stamps for the upcoming August Release by Peachy Keen Stamps.  They are super adorable and I know you will love them ♥

While you're waiting for the new stamps, we have another fun challenge for you to play along with! This week we have a beautiful Photo Inspiration Challenge and I decided to stick with our "Christmas in July" theme and use these pretty colors.....

* My cute little elf is from the PKSC-11 set.  I colored him up with my Copic markers
* I used some pretty Christmas paper following sticking with the colors used in the photo inspiration
* I added some wonky machine stitching around the edges of my mat

* I didn't have any ribbon that matched, so I colored a bit of white ribbon with a Copic marker to match.  Then, I added a layer of white pom poms.
* I also colored a few stars to add to the front of my card.
* The sentiment is also from the PKSC-11 set and is stamped onto a speech bubble created with the "Stitched Speech Bubbles" die by My Creative Time

Yay...another Christmas card to add to my stash! I need to continue our "Christmas in July" theme into August and September so I won't be in such a crunch come December!  Before I let you go, here are the details about this week's challenge.....

Create a project using the photo as inspiration. Interpret the photo ANY way you'd like, just be  sure to let us in on your creative process! The colors next to the photo are only suggested!
We'll be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week and  our two runner ups will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog!

I sure hope you can find some time to play along with us this week!  Be sure to stop by the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog to see the inspiration put together by our fabulous Designers!  Then, go get creative and link up your project with us.  I can't wait to see what you create!
