Hope


While the weather here in NEPA is ridiculously HOT and HUMID, I'm staying inside nice and cool and stocking up on Christmas cards!  I love celebrating Christmas in July.  My yearly Christmas card goal is 60, I have 13 done.  Not a bad start! 

My card was inspired by this weeks sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!


I typically make some Christmas card in July and then get really serious about Christmas/holiday cards in September.  What about you?  When do you start making holiday cards?

Stamps:  Iconic Christmas (Wplus9)
Ink:  Old Olive, Versamark (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White (SU!)
Accessories:  Iconic Christmas & Seasonal Sentiments Dies (Wplus9). Bakers Twine (SU!), Silver Embossing Powder

Oh...I love the negative die. Your take on the sketch is awesome! I have started really early this year (I'm normally a September girl!)

This is just perfect, Maureen! Love your crisp style. So, you live in NE Pennsy? I am in South Jersey, just outside of Philly. Small world!
