Christmas in July and some news....

My news first - I have been honored by being selected as part of the new DT members for Paper Cupcakes. Nina is the artist and she has some of the cutest digital images around - something for every occasion and personality, and while the cupcakes are really cute - there are many other style images as well. I can't wait to get started! Take a look HERE.

My card for today was made for the Shabby Tea Room Challenge this week "Christmas is July". If you are not familiar with them hop over and take a look - if you like shabby vintage, you'll love these challenges and, there's a lot of inspiration and talent.



The image is from my stash, the Holly DP is by Anna Griffin from Michael's, the CS is Bazzill - also from Michael's, the "JOY" sticker is by Melissa Francis from Emma's Paperie, and the seam binding is from my stash - I look for it at every thrift store I go into. Make sure you read the package, it has to be 100% rayon to make nice bows - once they started making the seambinding from polyester - it's just not the same.

Congratulations Dru on your new assignment. Your designs are so wonderful it is not hard to see why you were selected. I definitely look forward to see what you create for them. Your Christmas is just stunning. I have to think about my July Christmas cards soon. I did 9 cards in June gotta keep up the pace until November so I have enough.
