We Wish you A Merry Christmas!

Good Morning Everyone,

Can you believe that its almost August? - I mean, its not really yet - but when I went to the store and saw all the new #2 yellow pencils and school boxes lined up... that's when I realized summer is coming to a close :( so I thought that it would be fun to create a Christmas card (which is hard to do when it is so hot outside).

I pulled out the brand new JustRite Vintage Christmas 3-1/4" stamp set (which comes with 4 centers and 4 different borders). I love the way the JustRite stamps work - totally interchangeable borders and centers and they perfectly coordinate with your Spellbinders - so it makes it really easy to cut out the circle images and layer it with other nesties... I don't have a lot of vintage knowhow :) so I pulled out my ever trusty Graphic 45 papers - which crazily enough could coordinate with the Junebug Basic Gray papers! wow!
I love these sweet ornaments and after copicfying them, I add a little bit of stickles to the ornament images. Here is a closer look at these ornaments:

The middle circle layer is popped up on dimensionals and then sponged on the edges. I love creating holiday cards throughout the year and adding it to the holiday card pile so that by December I am not hitting the large red Panic button :)) Check out all the new Holiday and Christmas stamp sets from JustRite that are all ready to order - and the new 2010 Catalog and Idea book are here - filled to the brim with recipes, instructions and ideas on how to create projects with every JustRite stamp set!

Hope you are keeping cool in these hot days of summer!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
hugs :)))))
Sankari :)

Shhhhhhhh...... I love looking at your fab Christmas card, especially when it has Stickles & a pearl on it, but it is not officially August yet and we've got three more weeks before school starts again (and I have to turn that 5:40am alarm clock back on....whimper, whimper)! :> Hope you are having a great summer and that you enjoy the last two days of July! :>
