Today Catch the Bug has a fun Photo Challenge for their Christmas in July Event.
Here's my card with a bugaboo penguin on the beach:I made this card much more difficult than it should have been, all by gluing the seagulls down before stamping the sentiment. Unfortunately, I used a glue that doesn't come undone with Undo which left that tiny space in which to stamp. I thought I had a stamp that said 'Warm Christmas Wishes'. When I found the stamp, it actually said 'Warm Winter Wishes". That didn't suit me. So I needed to combine 2 CTMH stamps...
First I put tape over the word winter, inked the stamp, removed the tape and stamped Warm Wishes on the card. Then I did the same with the second stamp, covering the Merry, removing the tape, and stamping. Normally, this is when I would mess up the card, but I surprised my self and it came out fine.
Thanks for the thumbs up Poppi Penguin.
