A Christmas Badger -- for Lavinia Challenge Blog

It's Christmas in July -- or at least I'm celebrating it.  I'm also celebrating the fun challenges at Lavinia World Challenge Blog.  Challenges run for 2 weeks, are Anything Goes, but you must use an acrylic or rubber stamp.  You don't have to use a Lavinia Stamp, but if you do, you double your chance of winning the awesome $15 gift certificate. 

On this Christmas card, I used the beautiful Badger (LAV443):

I stamped the Badger with Cocoa Brown Memento ink, then used some Copic markers to shade him.  I cut his awesome Santa Hat out on my Silhouette Cameo 3 with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The sentiment is a die, purchased from Dies R Us. Papers are digital, and are from We Are 3 -- they are the Peppermint papers. 

The Lavinia World Challenge Blog -- I hope you can join us this next 2 weeks.  I so love seeing what everyone creates with these awesome stamps, and we've got a great gift certificate you can win!

I'd also like to give you a chance to win some blog candy I have.  I turned 60 on July 6th, and I have over $60 of crafty supplies I'm giving away to a lucky winner.  See this post for details on how you can win it. 

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- July Linky Party 
2 Crafty Critter Crazies -- ATG with a Critter
Crafty Animals -- ATG with an animal
Outlawz Festive Fridays -- Christmas
Outlawz Monday Challenge -- Christmas in July
