Merry Christmas???...in July???




Has anyone else started on Christmas cards yet? I love Christmas! So for me, starting this early is so much fun. I spent all day last Saturday at Skribbles and Scraps making Christmas cards...what a great day! So when I saw the High Hopes challenge for this week, I knew I was already in the Christmas spirit! I love this stamp...it represents the true reason for celebrating Christmas! What a beautiful, quiet moment...Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus...even a little lamb is taking in the sight. I coloured the image with my Copics (love these markers!). The edges were aged with Antique Linen distress ink. The Scripture verse is printed on my computer (I really have very few sentiment stamps in my collection...I always get sidetracked by the images!). Some raffia completes this card. I didn't want to make it very fussy...I really wanted the image to take the focus.


That's all for now...go pull out some Christmas stamps and get merry!
