Cheer & Joy in July

Hello Again Crafty friends,

Well, it is mid-July and things are cooling down at PINspirational. It is all about Christmas in July. Seems hard to believe, but Christmas isn't too far off. So what better reminder than some Christmas inspiration for you. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

White cardstock base with die-cut and punched snowflakes.
The neutral background and limited color palette remind me of crisp, clean winter.

I love this digi from Elisabeth Bell Designs.
I usually don't like cute cards but this image got my heart!
Die cut sentiment from SSS and coordinating stamp seems to be a perfect fit for this little girl sending out her Christmas letters. Who knows maybe one special letter is for Santa. Precious!
Well, that should do it for me. I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I do hope you will join us at PINspirational. It should be fun! Until then take care and happy crafting.

All the best,

Christmas in July

Hello All,

Summer is in full swing! So there is no better time than July to start thinking about Christmas. So here is my 'festive' card for today, enjoy!!

It is hard to believe that this card is using only one set. It is full of detail, charm, and the colors of Christmas.  The MHKDesigns Country Farm digi paper acts as a wash to the overlay crackled backdrop finish. 

______________________________
MHKDesigns vintage images work so well with each other.
I invite you to check out her Etsy store and see for yourself
the versatility of stamp sets and the variety of digital papers we have to offer
______________________________
This card is all wrapped in a pretty little bow!
I thought it was a nice touch for a whimsical card.
Another whimsical touch is the garland and gems draped on the card.
It adds a bit of sparkle and shine without being overbearing.
Perfect for Christmas.

The sentiment is colored with gray and silver colored pencil.
I like to use gray first because it allows the silver to shine more vibrantly. 

I encourage you to stop by the MHKDesigns blog to see more inventive ideas from our design team, and then play along with our monthly challenge, or just enjoy a bit of eye candy. 

There is a lot more to discover at MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Stop on over and see what we have to offer. It is certain to spark the imagination. So, thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon. Take care and happy crafting.

Here in the United States July is kind of a big deal- by kind of I mean a huge deal. On the fourth of the month we celebrate our Independence. A time to reflect and remember that our freedom comes with a price. Brave soldiers fought and died to keep us free. I am forever in your debt and am immeasurable grateful for all those in uniform and their families who have to endure time away from their loved one. So I think while I celebrate with I am going to take a moment of silence and thank them for all they for our country, thank you

That should do it for me!! I hope this post entices you to join our challenge this month at ĺĺ then, have a great day, take care, and happy crafting.


All the best,
Shawna
