Christmas in July :)


Tomorrow is Friday!!  :) :) :)  Actually, I don't really care what day of the week it is... there is always something going on!!  And July is going by waaaaaay too quickly!!

So after complaining about time flying... what kind of card do I have to show you?  A Christmas card!!!   After all, it is only 167 days away! 



This doesn't have the traditional look to it, but I was pleased with it!   I made this using digi image, paper, and sentiment from Doodle Pantry.  These are some of July's new releases.   The Vintage Lamppost set is FREE with any purchase until July 24.  The Holiday Greetings set is FREE if you play along with Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #36 this month.




Once it was all printed out, it was easy to cut everything with my Spellbinders and finish it off with a touch of ribbon, a button tied with hemp cord, and some adhesive pearls. 

Challenges...
The Paper Players #153 - Christmas in July
Merry Monday - month long "anything goes" 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

What a warm, lovely image! Your layout is beautiful and the sentiment is just perfect. I know what you mean about this summer flying by - I've been working on "Christmas in July" projects all month. I know it will sneak up on me just like it does every year ;)

Your work with these digital images is quite amazing. I never did quite manage to come up with anything using digis that I was really proud of. But, you my friend have it mastered.
