Newton Santa Paws Card

Happy Thursday! We got a subtle break from the summer heat the last couple of days and it's been nice. I mowed the lawn yesterday and pulled a few weeds, but there are still plenty of outdoor chores that need to be done. It's seems there is never enough time or energy to get everything accomplished.

Making Christmas cards in July is a wonderful idea! It helps me add to my stash and it's a nice break from summer colors. Although, this Newton Santa Paws Card is the first one I've made this month. I've had a harder time finding ideas than usual. Luckily the sketch at Inky Paws helped to inspire this card. The Santa Paws stamp set by Newton's Nook was used and the images colored with Copic markers. Three different patterned papers were used, plaid by Lawn Fawn, polka dots by Stampin' Up! and snowflakes by Recollections (Fireside paper pad). I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
