Another Christmas card in July...

Hi there friends and welcome.
I'm popping in with a quick post about a 
Christmas card I made, like, 4 days ago and am only
blogging about it now. At the 11th hour.
Again. LOL!

and the inside:

This is one of those cards that I would file under "meh", but 
I did have fun using a boat load of dies on this, so there's that.

I'm combining two challenges with this card: the just about ended

My inspiration was the embroidery hoops hanging over the mantel.
I combined the 'JOY' from the first one and the design of the last one,
switching out stars for the pompoms. 
Before I glued the bow on, I gave the stars and banner a generous coating of
Nuvo glitter drops, because, sparkle!

That's all for now. Gotta get this entered. LOL!
Thanks for popping by!
