Christmas in July

Hi! We've been having hot and really humid weather these past few days mixed in with heavy rain , so what better excuse do I need to stay inside and pull out my paper and inks and make something??? I found myself browsing through a few challenge sites and I stopped over at Jingle Belles and decided that I was long overdue in making my Christmas cards! It's less than six months away!!! Yikes!!!
Jessi Fogan ( aka .One Crafty Mama) invites us to let our sleigh bells ring! You can use sleigh bells, make a card with a sleigh or use sheet music on your card. There's something for everyone in this challenge .... and you may be lucky to win a sweet prize, too!!

My card uses two of the three ideas... sleigh and sleigh bells.... check it out:

I started with a red cardstock base and then a green mat; the patterned piece is a sheet from the 4X76 MME paper pad called All Is Bright collection. The pad is full of trendy tags, journaling blocks and mats that are so much fun to play with. I created a 2.5" sleigh with my Cricut and the Joys of The Season cartridge and then I added a few sleigh bells brads , SU! twine. The sentiment is from Bo Bunny, inked in Cherry Cobbler.
Yay!! I finally completed a challenge!!! :-)
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out all the entries over at Jingle Belles!
Have a great
