Christmas in July

How many Christmas cards do you have done so far?  I will have to say I don't have as many as I had hoped I would have done by now but it is growing and today I was able to add another.

The House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog has a Christmas theme or if you don't have a Christmas themed stamp anything goes.  I am once again posting a card as Guest Designer on their blog today so I had to go with my Berrying Gifts stamp.   The best thing about Christmas is the gifts we give others and the most precious gift we received which is Jesus!

This little guy is giving his precious berries, isn't that too sweet.  I added a bit of sparkle stickles to show it has just started snowing.




So stop by the blog and see the great goodies you could win by playing along on this challenge.

Stampendous- House Mouse Design - Berrying Gifts stamp, colored w/markers
Memory Box - Stitched Rectangle layer die
Fancy Pants design- Saint Nick paper
Stickles - Diamond for snow

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and have a wonderful week,

Connie

I don't have any Christmas cards completed --- I'm one of those people who doesn't work "out of season" very much. Maybe because I can't seem to get in the mood when it's 90 degrees outside (smile!)
Love the sweet House Mouse card you've created -- such a cute image and beautiful coloring!

Such a cute image, perfect for Christmas! I have about half a dozen made so far, must get cracking!

Leslie Miller said...

You know, Connie, I think you and House Mouse were meant to be together because you always do such a beautiful job with these images. I'm completely enchanted! I do love a cute card as much as a pretty one, and this one is utterly adorable! BTW, I believe I have 16 Christmas cards. I'd hoped to have more by this time, too, but we've been having a very busy summer. I'd better pick up the pace!
