Eureka Challenge #48 - Christmas in July

I'm so super excited!!!!  I've had a love of Eureka Stamps for a while now.  Honestly, I've not found one image yet that I don't like and want!  So recently when I saw on the challenge blog that they were having a Design Team Call - I figured I would apply...of course thinking there was no way that I would ever get chosen.  And guess what?!!  Today is my first day on the DT!!!!!  So here we go:

The theme for this weeks Eureka Stamps Challenge is "Christmas In July".  I always seem to wait until the last minute to start my Christmas cards and then am in a big rush to get the done and they wind up looking like it too!  Sometimes, I'm ashamed to admit, I even buy cards to send out.  Can you believe it - I make cards and then wind up having to send out store bought Christmas cards!  So this year I'm trying to get an earlier start and this challenge has helped in that endeavor.  (Let's see if at the end of November I really have enough cards to send!).

I used two Eureka Stamps for my card.  The sentiment is May This Season and the image is Winter Set Of 4.  I only used one of the 4 images in that set - the Holly.  I colored the holly leaves and berries with Spectrum Noir markers.  The ribbon I thought needed some "bling" so I used Spica Glitter Pens to color the ribbon.  The papers are some that I had on hand and the bling was also from my stash.  I thing I was sent it in a swap last year but I'm not sure.  Here's the finished product:

 
Ok, you know the drill now....it's your turn!  So get out those Christmas things and come on over to Eureka Stamps Challenge and help us Celebrate Christmas in July!  You never know - you just might win!  And what would you win?  Well, you could win 2 digi images!  But wait - if you use a Eureka image - you could win 5 digi images!  What a great way to start or add to your collection!  Fa-La-La-La-La.....(ok, so that's a sad attempt at carroling...but you get the point....).
