Christmas in July at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week at Cardz 4 Guyz we're thinking ahead to Christmas, because it's time for our Christmas in July challenge.

I've used this fun "Santa Selfie" image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps, which I printed out 24 hours in advance to prevent smudging then coloured in with Promarkers. I had planned to colour the braces a more realistic dark grey, then I remembered the classic cracker joke:

Why does Santa wear red braces?
To keep his trousers up!

Well, of course after that they HAD to be red, didn't they?

The sentiment is a Dylusions stamp that seems very suitable for Christmas in July, and the backing paper a very old freebie from Craft Creations. The snowflake border is a self adhesive felt one that was a gift from a friend.

I am sharing this with:
