Charlie with Dog - a Christmas Card at 35 degrees Celsius

Es ist so wahnsinnig warm in meiner Wohnung, ich schmelze förmlich dahin. Meine einzigen Möglichkeiten mal einen kühlen kopf zu bekommen, ist Eiscreme und meine erste Weihnachts-/Winterkarte in diesem Jahr! ;-)

It is so incredibly hot in my apartment, I literally melt away. My only options to get a little coolness is ice cream and my first Christmas- / Wintercard of this year! ;-)

Der Schneeflocken-Hintergrund ist mit einem Embossingfolder und einem weißen SU-Stempelkissen gemacht. Ein Tutorial dazu findet ihr hier.

The snowflake background is made with an Embossing Folder and a white SU ink pad. A tutorial post is here.

Auch die Innenseite der Karte ist dekoriert.
Also the inside of the card is decorated.

Und natürlich Stickles-Glimmer für Charlies Fell an seiner Mütze. Wie beim Weihnachtsmann...
And of course, Stickles-Sparkling for Charlie's fur on his cap. Just like Santa Claus ...

What a cute christmas card! The bling on the fur looks so beautiful. I enjoyed making a christmas card at that heat - felt like cooling down a bit!
