Christmas in July!

Hi everyone!

I hope that everyone has had a great kick start to the weekend! Here in Vancouver, we have a long-weekend, but so far all I've done is work :( Hopefully I'll get some down time soon..but school finals are approaching soon...sigh. I've really wanted to create Christmas cards, but with such a busy schedule, I haven't been able to get around to it yet. This November I'll be taking part in a craft fair so I really do need to get my Christmas craft on! You will see Christmas cards from me soon though! In the meantime, I thought that I'd share with you all the Christmas card I made for my boyfriend last Christmas.

This is a standard A2 sized card.

Here's a peak to the sentiment inside the card:

The sentiment is from Pink By Design's Christmas Wishes holiday sentiment set. This set is jam packed with holiday cheer! They're having a sale this weekend in celebration of their one year anniversary - everything 30% off here! Now how sweet is that?! You will not be disappointed - they've got sentiments, images, backgrounds, and supplies! Just use coupon code bigtimesaver30. Sale ends tomorrow - 07/31/2011 so don't miss out!!

Materials Used:
  • Sled and reindeer cut from Christmas Solutions Cartridge
  • Labels cut from Create a Critter Cartridge
  • Patterned paper from DCWV - Holiday Stack & Metallics Stack
  • Sentiment from PBD Christmas Wishes
  • Gifts - Jolee Sticker Embellishments
  • Creative Memories Corner Rounder
  • Foil Cardstock (Gold)
  • Black Sukura Pen
  • Crystal Accents
  • Specialty Twine
Hope this inspires you to get workin' on those Christmas cards! I know I sure am itching to get started but i still have a scrapbook to complete! Make sure you tune back on Tuesday for another Celebrate the Occasion Challenge

Until next time's treasures,
