One more Christmas card in July...

Hello friends and happy Sunday to you. It's the last day in July, can you believe that? Where did this month go?! Pretty soon the kiddies will be heading back to school (insert secret squeal of joy here) and the days will be noticeably shorter. (how depressing)

So, to send off July, I made a Christmas card:


 Here's the inside:

I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly this card came together. Quite possibly in under an hour. (It takes roughly at least 2 hours for me to make a card, because I agonize over which stamps, or DP, or colors, or embellies, or sketch, etc. to use. I can never make up my mind) I think what took the longest on this card was the placement of those alpha stickers (HO HO HO). Yep, those are ancient stickers from my stash. Made of thin paper. And I rearranged them at least 12 times. Yikes! 

Anyhoo, the planets must have aligned last night, since I'm able to enter this card in three challenges:

Jingle Belles - We Three Kings (my 3 is the HO HO HO)
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - pick a sketch - I used the May 2016 sketch

 


Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have an enjoyable day!

DP: Graphic 45 - Christmas Emporium
CS: Bazzill, Darice
