July Challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round is UP!

So, the July challenge at CCAYR is to use red, white and blue. I know, it seems strange for Christmas card colors, but believe me, it's very cool! Just check out all the DT cards - http://christmascardsallyearround.blogspot.com/. I am also on the DT at CCAYR and my July card is shown below. I used some Friendly Forest paper, the Cricut, a beautiful flower that I won in some FAB blog candy from Ann, a little twine and a border punch for the white side border. Super easy, but effective I think. So.....Go check out the other DT cards and please join us for our July challenge. You can try out this unusual color scheme and get 5 Christmas cards done - in JULY! Thanks for stopping by today :)

I've always loved blue when it comes to Christmas. Then again...I am an Elvis fan... :)

Love this card Diana, although it gives me shivers down my spine to think before we know it Christmas will be upon us again, that's if the past 6 months are anything to go by.

Super sweet card, Diana! Reminds me that I should start planning ahead...usually I pick out the stamps, paper, etc. I will use and order way in advance. I haven't even thought about it yet!

It's sad but Santa will be here before we know it!
