July is the time that I start making my Christmas Cards. Yes it's true. I start making my cards in July because I have a little over 50 cards to make every Season. So instead of waiting till the last minute I start creating my cards in July. I found two challenges to play along with for my very first Christmas card of the year.
ABC Christmas Challenge - N is for Nonsense, make a plain no frills card, no design paper.
The Paper Variety Christmas in July Challenge.
I'm so pleased with how this little card turned out. I hope you like it too.
