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!


  1. Great cards! You're off to a good start on them :)

  2. Gorgeous cards! It's fun how they are all so different from each other. By the way, my fav is the card that you designed yourself! ;) Great challenge!

  3. OMG!!! FANTASTIC!!! And I love Christmas in July it makes me feel a bit cooler in the humidity :) I am so going to try and get your challenge done.......

  4. Awesome cards! Each one is so unique. You are really going to be ready for Christmas.

  5. These are all WONDERFUL!!!! I love those stockings and need to add them to my "must buy" list hee hee! I love how you used the leaf ribbon here too, I keep forgetting to order that (I'm such a dinglefritz ;)

  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.


I'd love you hear from you- constructive criticism and all!
