Walking in a Winter Wonderland? It's July!

Yes, it's July, but you've all heard of Christmas in July right? Well, we fans of Lili of the Valley stamps are getting an early, early start on our holiday card making! If you wait until December to start making your cards, we all know what's going to happen, right? ... nothing! lol

Here's another peek at one of the new stamps coming out sometime at the end of this month. Release date is not certain yet, but I'll let you know as soon as I find out myself!

I'm sure if you're a follower of my blog, you know I have an affinity for lanterns. I LOVE lanterns, especially old fashioned ones. So when I saw this little cutie pie, she was all mine!

She's colored with Copics, and shaded with some colored pencils, and I completely cut her out to set her directly on the little scene I created in the background. 
Some wool felt stitched onto the background paper, some die cut/cream embossed/glass glittered pine trees, a bare branched cream embossed/glass glittered tree and I have a pretty little scene for lantern girl.

I printed the sentiment out with my computer and die cut it into a banner. This holiday card makes me happy!

Hope it makes you happy as well, and thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
