Nativity in July

I know, I know, you were hoping not to see Christmas stuff until all the school supply specials had cleared the aisles but someone at SCS thought a Christmas in July challenge was a good idea. Who am I to resist? Especially since my MIL cleared out her stamping stuff and it has been sitting around in my garage for about 18 months. I finally went through her box in an effort to sell off anything worthwhile and I came across a little gem of a set called Nativity Silhouettes. They are naming geniuses at Stampin' Up, eh?
I made a brayered background, stamped my image and added it to some of the denim like paper I had made for another challenge a couple of weeks ago. I added some dots from the Stamping Bella line and there you have it! I know it is a bit early to foist the holiday season on you already. Just remember, it is never too early to start making presents for me, or ordering them on line. I don't mind if you start preparing to spoil me now. Go ahead, give in to the urge.
After a few beautiful days we are going to have a rainy weekend which means indoor children. At least this will give them time to clean their rooms and the bathrooms. Oh, I love that they are old enough for chores! Steak and Shake still has their special where kids eat free on weekends, so no doubt we'll take the little boogers out for a free meal, too. I wanted to have a craft night with the girlfriends but they are all busy on different nights, so it will be more of the same for me, crafting alone and making whatever strikes my whimsy.

I am loving seeing the Christmas ideas in July! I am planning a Christmas in July craft day for next week so I can use all the ideas I can get. Great colors.

I once tried to eat out every night where I could find a free kids meal. I did not find a place for every night. I still may try.......
