Well, it is now July 3rd and I said I was going to have Christmas in July, so I am starting now.  I am adding 2 new cards that I just made and 1 card that I made a while back.  I hope you enjoy them!

 This card is made from designer paper in the corners and mounted on black card stock that was embossed with a lot of Christmas greetings.  I ran the white ink pad over the embossed images to make them stand out.  The Nativity ornament is a digi stamp that I colored and cut out with round nest abilities.  I made the ornament holder with part of a punched scalloped circle, cut it and outlined it with a glitter pen.  I made a slot on the top and added a trimmed piece of ribbon for the hanger and put it on with pop dots.  This is actually made from a card sketch for my club that is due next month.

This is also a digi stamp that I just made today.  I had a good time coloring in the tree and ornaments.  I cut the image out with Nestabilities and mounted it on embossed paper and added the ribbon and made a double bow to make it pop.

This is one that I made last year when I was in my Christmas groove.  I loved using the different designer paper.  The image is another digital that I made to look old by using distress ink.

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July holiday.  I will be staying home for the most part, however, I will be going to a party tomorrow evening.  They are always fun!

Till next time...
