Pallenge #12 Christmas in (almost) July

Hi there! It is my turn to post a challenge over at the Papertrey PALs blog. Did you realize there are less than 6 months til Christmas??? Probably the last thing you want to think about are making your Christmas cards. I am getting ready to move from Spain to California this August and am worried with getting settled in and starting a new job my card making may be taking a back seat. So, while I sit here in my empty house (we have loaner furniture since our stuff was packed up earlier this month) with my limited craft supplies I have been cranking out Christmas cards with a couple of friends. Here is a sampling of what I have made.


This first card is a CASE of Betsy Veldman's card here. Scroll down to her last card on that post.

This next one is a CASE of Debbie Olson's card here.

Here is one that I came up with on my own:

And lastly, here is one using vintage ornaments. I CASEd from Dawn McVey's card here.

Go on over to the Papertrey PALs blog and play along!

  6. Oh dear, I really AM a dinglefritz, I just looked again and you didn't use the leaf ribbon, that's a stamp! Well it "looks" like the leaf ribbon ;)

  7. These are fantastic! I love the leaf border on the first card and the colors you chose. I actually prefer your take on the design! I think may have case your card--saving the photo to my inspiration file.
