Christmas in July, sorta...
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...NOT! I am nowhere near ready to celebrate, but last year, I started my Christmas cards early and was so glad to have them finished before December 24th! So I decided to do this again this year. There's nothing better to put you in the Christmas spirit than a muggy summer day! I also continued last year's trend of using up some of my older papers. I used a very retired Ski Slope. Sketch #83 from Operation Write Home gave me a perfect starting point for using lots of patterned paper.
I figured while I was digging through and trimming my scraps, I would go ahead and make four cards.
During one of my cleaning sprees, I found a box of Christmas cards I had saved from different classes and stamp a stacks I attended. I took pictures of my favorite designs and added them to my stash. Between these and my four new cards, I have a pretty good start on my Christmas cards. Now I just need to keep making them! Wish me luck!
I hope you have a wonderful day and find some time to be crafty!
