There are still a couple of days left over at Flourishes to take advantage of their “Christmas in July” sale!  All Christmas sets are 15% off.


On this card I paper pieced, cut out and applied rhinestones to the two gift images from Flourishes “O Christmas Tree” set.  Using a marker, I colored in the bow on one of the gifts.  I used the Christmas tree image to stamp the pine boughs along the edge.  The sentiment is from the Flourishes Christmas set “Rejoice”.  All the designer paper is Memory Box’s “Sprout”.  I zigzagged all over the place with my sewing machine, and have to admit it was quite a bit of fun!  Plus the sewing holds the torn vellum securely in place.  That pretty dotted green ribbon is May Arts.

This card is also for a couple of the DTGD08 Challenges over on Splitcoaststampers.  If you are a Fan Club member you can check them out: DTGD08Julia and DTGD08Laurie.  You can play along and upload into the DTGD Galleries until August 30th!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.  We have been enjoying such beautiful sunny weather here in the Pacific Northwest.  Well… until today.  It is pouring rain as I type this.  Do you think Mr. Sun saw my Christmas card and got confused?  *chuckle*  Sure hope our summer days are not over with just yet.  My sweet little (almost 4) twin granddaughters are coming to visit for a week in August.  We have lots of swimming in the lake and boating on the agenda.  So here’s to happy warm thoughts and Christmas. (Oh and Mr. Sun… the Christmas part is just at Flourishes!!)
