For You!

Hello Everyone,

Another beautiful summer day:) A little humidity but that's MN for ya! Today I thought it would be fun to play in a couple challenges~ Christmas in July!  It will give me a chance to have some cards on hand in advance instead of trying to rush at Christmas time when it's SO busy! It seems a big strange to be making Christmas cards in July BUT I will be happy I did ....come Dec, LOL!

I got my mojo going after seeing all these Christmas in July Blog hops going on and all the inspiration. I really had fun...so thanks for getting me going!



This cute Christmas stocking is cut at a5 5.79 using my gypsy and all the layers from the Winter Frolic cartridge. I used coordinating papers from K&Co~Yuletide for the stocking. I found this shimmery off white paper in my stash~I embossed it with the snowflakes folder~ I just love the look of it!  I added some pretty brown/white polka dot ribbon, bakers twine and some boa on the stocking. This design was really quick and you could easily mass produce this. I hope you are inspired and decide to come join us in these challenges!!
I am entering this over at the following challenges:
1.) More Than Favors~Wacky Wednesday Challenge #46~Christmas in July
2.) Cricut Cardz # 85~Holiday, Anything Goes
3.) My Creative Time #223~Christmas Theme/also add material somewhere on project.

Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K

Please be sure to stop tomorrow for some exciting news!

Your creative spirit shines so brightly and I feel blessed to be able to share in your incredible creations. :o) (I'm sappier than a maple tree!) Everything you create is pure magic!
