Card Design: Imagine That...Progressive Challenge for July
It is time to upload my creation for the Imagine That Progressive Challenge.  I continue to be so grateful that I am part of this wonderful progressive challenge.  I really love Kris' work and am thrilled to get the opportunity to earn a fabulous new set each month by linking up.  Thankfully this month it is a Christmas image and you know what that means, one more card added to the Christmas pot to avoid the yearly Christmas Card Panic.
Christmas Card Count to date: 16

This month the images that everyone who is part of the progressive challenge gets to play with are in the wonderful set, Meowy Mousemas...
Love the name and love this set.  Just so precious!  Kris has a wonderful style and all her images are awesome.  Nope, I'm not biased at all!  Really!  

As always, you can work with either the coloured image, or the line art one.  This particular set also comes with four different sentiments to help you out!  If you missed out, you can still play along by purchasing this set in the store for a discount during the month of July (click on the image name or watermark above)  Of course, you better get moving if you are interested because there are isn't much of July left! 

Here are my card and details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything important... 

Digital Image Details:   
  • Meowy Mousemas: Details for how to get a hold of it are included underneath the set preview in the above section.
  • This time around I have used the outline image and coloured it in with a combination of digital colouring and with Copic markers.  Digital Credits include:
    • The cup was coloured in using two different layer styles from Shelby Kate Schmitz of
    • The 'table' that I have the image sitting on is made from a wood pattern available from Free PSD
    • The background wall paper is from the Baby Blue kit available at {Computer}  I changed the colour to suit the project.
Digital Sentiment Details:  
  • The glittery snowflake and the ribbon are both Crafts brand and was purchased at Dollarama. 

Digital Sentiment Details: 
Paper Products:
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Preppy Beach collection.
  • The dotted blue paper is from my scrap pile so I don't know the pad name off hand; although, it will definitely be a Recollection's pad.
Challenge I am entering...  
Others I am hoping to enter...
I encourage you to go and check out the digis that Kris offers along with the Progressive Free Digi Challenge.  It is another fun place to shop and play.She also has a sweet Hula Girl up on the blog as a freebie.  So, grab it while you can.  I'm hoping to do a promotional post sometime by this weekend showcasing all the latest sets that have gone into the IT shop over the past few months.  There are so many fabulous ones to choose from!
Finally, all of my progressive challenge cards are done for the month.  Good thing since there is only one day left.  Thankfully, I got in an extra holiday card too.  Don't forget, that you can jump in at any time and add your own holiday cards to my 12 Months of Christmas link up. Click HERE for all the details. I'll need to get the winner post for July out soon as well.

So much to do, so little time so I better get my butt moving and on to the next thing on my list!

Until next time,
