Christmas Card in August


One down and too many more to go... Yep, that's right. Christmas cards. Now is the time to start a making your holiday creations. Here's one I made for Mama Dini's sketch challenge and it is doing double duty for Tracy's August Happiness Challenge. Mama Dini's sketch is awesome and I had a hard time to find a stamp that would work just right for the main image but it was worth the effort to be able to complete the sketch. I used various colors of Stickles to make the tree brighter than the background papers. Anyhow, it is nice to think on Christmas and to be reminded of the many blessings that the holiday celebrates... our Savoiur's birth. Oh how I love Jesus!

Card Details:
The Angel Company "Eclectic Christmas"
