Christmas in July



Sheetload of Cards has their July issue out and WOW, there are some great ideas for Christmas Cards, so if you haven't started making them (like me) you have no more excuses. Below is the card that I made for the issue, wanted to use the circle as an ornament and hung it from the bow.


For other news, I am moving, yup moving July 23rd....... July 23rd, I have not even started packing or anything as yet. I won't be posting for awhile, will be busy but will be checking out all those wonderful blogs out there. Have a wonderful July, will pop in once in a while with something cause you know that the craft items will be the last thing packed but won't be back full time till August.

I do not envy you all the work of packing up to move. You'll be missed but look forward to "seeing" you again once your move is completed.
