Christmas in July (and August)


Good Afternoon!!!


Well today was the first day of school for all my kids. Even my youngest is in school now. So I had some "very quiet" time to create. I needed to get a Christmas card done for a swap on SCS. The title of the swap is Christmas in July. So here is the card I made. I sure am loving my Spellbinders and the new little self-adhesive pearls from Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz cardstock are terrific SU colors.


Thanks for looking.
