It's Christmas in July...sort of!

Hello Ai fans!

Welcome to week number two of Art Impressions Create with Christmas challenge.  The challenge is NOT to create a Christmas card but to make a card (or project) using a Christmas stamp in a different way.  I used four different Ai Christmas stamps and one birthday verse.

I just used the "Wishing you a" portion

I just used the center bear and hid his ice skates behind grass.

I trimmed out the bear holding the candy cane.

Wouldn't this be a great card for a child's birthday or
even just for someone who loves Polar Bears!

It goes to show you that you should be looking at your stamps in a new way.  Just because it may be meant for one season or holiday doesn't mean it can be reinvented! 

I used this verse on the inside...

Doesn't this little cutie just put a smile on your face?!

These Polar Pals are one of my favourites! Thanks for the idea to use them this way! Your cards are always super adorable!
