Christmas in July! What the what?!

Ho ho ho . . . he he he . . . and hap-hap-happy Monday, my little elves!! So . . . wasn't Saturday's Sugar Nellie Blog Hop such fun?!! I loved looking at all of the gorgeous Summer creations!! And now that we're all deep into Summer mode, I've decided to shake things up a bit with this week's Sugar Nellie DT card!
That's right . . . a Christmas Card! hehehe! For this little holiday creation, I used one of Leanne Ellis' images made especially for Sugar Nellie. The stamp is called "Pointsettia Girl" and she's available right HERE at Funky Kits!

I had such fun making this card . . . mostly because I just love coloring Leanne Ellis images . . . but also because it feels a little rebellious making Christmas cards in July! LOL! Here's a close-up of this quirky little darlin; . . .

And a side view . . .
