Christmas in July

 Hello everyone...happy Friday :) Only 1 more sleep and we're off on's been 8 years since we had a holiday and I'm SOOOO needing it!!! Last time we went on holiday we bought a house, went back home and sold up then moved 'overseas' lol  From the mainland to Tasmania...well, okay then...interstate :) We've had strict instructions not to do that this time! So I'll be missing for nearly 2 phone, no computer = no commenting, visiting blogs, etc. I'll try to catch up on things when I get back home. Be good while I'm away...and don't do anything I wouldn't do LOL

What would July be without a Christmas challenge lol  We haven't disappointed you...we have a theme of Christmas in July at The Outlawz Copic/Promarker challenge this week. An easy challenge so come on over and join in the fun :)

I've made a hanger...yes, another hanger lol...there's still lots more to come yet :)

The gorgeous Santa is from Hero Arts. He was a joy to colour :) To give him a little texture I used puff paint on his beard and fun flock on his trims. The Chrissy tree had little buttons drawn on it but I opted for rhinestones to bling it up a bit. I'll definitely be using this Santa again.

A close up of Santa:

He's so cute and I love the hanger! I have to pick up some puff paint because I adore how his beard turned out! Have a great trip and enjoy being totally unplugged for a whole two weeks!
