Christmas in July - And Blog Candy Too!

I love practically everything about Christmas (I just wish the snow and cold didn't stick around so long). The design team at All That Scraps is doing a Christmas in July celebration - sharing Christmas samples and maybe some more festive surprises!!! Don't you just LOVE this image of Lulu??? This is from the CC Designs set Lulu's Sweet Delights. The first CC Desgins images I ever saw were Christmas/winter ones and were on Lauren Meader's blog (waving hi to Lauren!) http://laurenm.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/. The Christmas and winter images went right onto my wish list but in all honesty this is just the 2nd time I have used this image to actually complete a project (come on, you know how it is!) I LOVE this finished project! I think the patterned paper really makes it, or maybe it is the simple 2 colors, or maybe it is Lulu's sweet face. Whatever it is, I loved it when it was done.
The patterned paper is retired from Stampin' Up! It is the Cerise line of paper but I am sure you can find red and white/cream striped paper anywhere. The red ribbon is from Stampin' Up! too. BUT, don't you love the scallop edge? So sweet and petite..it is a brand new product from Stampin' Up! that will be available in the new catalog. Trust me, you are gonna want this punch!
Anyway...for the blog candy...leave a post to this project and leave me a link to your most favorite Christmas themed stamp set ever and I'll draw a random winner on the 27th. The winner will receive a new, CC Designs e-z mounted snowman stamp (http://www.allthatscraps.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=360_361_545&products_id=4841). Good luck!
Supplies Used: Real Red cs, ink, Close to Cocoa ink, Chocolate Chip ink, Blush Blossom SW Marker, Very Vanilla cs, Timber Brown Staz On, Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, SU Scallop edge punch (NEW), Lulu's Sweet Delights set.

My fav Christmas stamp is probably SU's City of David that I purchased from YOU! It was a close one, as I LOVE lots of the script Christmas phrases and a snowflake I'd picked up many years ago too!
Last year's card using my fav:
