Christmas in June.....

Good morning! I have a Christmas card to share........I know....Christmas.....it is still 6 months away! But hey, it will be here before you know it! I used a set from last years JustRite release called Christmas Treasures. I love the image of the cardinal here. It was colored with Copic markers. The cardinal and leaves were colored twice and popped up from the image. I added chunky glitter to the rooftop to emulate snow. The paper is by Cosmo Cricket and PaperTrey Ink. The circles were cut out using my Spellbinder's Nestibilities.

I added teeny tiny rhinestones to the holly berries. They are actually intended for nails.....I bought them at Sally Beauty Supply. (Even buying hair care products I think about this crazy hobby! LOL!)

JustRite is taking pre-orders on this years new Christmas collection! They are gorgeous!!! Head HERE to place your order!

Cort is back in summer school and Kyle has drama camp this week, so I will have a bit of quiet time in the house........ : )

Now THIS is a lovely card!! So beautiful! You know, I'm finding more and more people who are already getting prepared for Christmas already. My mother has always shopped in the off season to get things done ahead of time, but we're making everything this year and now seems like a good time to begin instead of waiting and feeling rushed.

I just recently became a new follower and I look forward to coming back for future posts(: Thanks for stopping by my little blog...it was so good to see you (:

Michele
XOXO
