Fancy Sunbonnet Christmas Stuff

Happy 4th of July everyone!  I can't believe it's already half way through the year and that my summer is nearly gone!  Gone!  Another blink and the kids will be back in school then the work will really have to start.  :(  You see, it's easy to claim the kids take up all the time when they're home playing with me but when they're at school during the day that means I have more house cleaning, to dos and errands to run.  Oh well, I guess we better enjoy it while it lasts... maybe that's the perfect reason to go miniature golfing today!!  Oh, yeah!


We have an awesome release today at Little Miss Muffet Stamps plus the start of Christmas in July!!  There are four fun images to start with so you can get start working on those holiday cards!  For my project, I've used Fancy Sunbonnet Christmas Stuff by Little Miss Muffet Stamps (of course) and drawn by Bugaboo.  These sunbonnet images bring back lots of memories for me as my Mom is a big Sunbonnet Sue and Calico Sam fan!  So even those I wanted to use EVERY image in the new release, I narrowed it down to this one.


The papers were sort of chosen at random - I kinda picked through the top of the Christmas Stash as I didn't want to spend too much time sorting through the pile.  But I had some golden felt that went well with the paper tones and decided it was a good fit.  The rest is... well, coloring history.  LOL


I hope you've enjoyed this bit of inspiration and thanks for coming by today!  Make sure to visit the LMMS blog to see all the other awesome projects created and also the LMMS FB page for some rising fun this week!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
