A Little Christmas Pre-July

Well, it's almost July. And I have a Christmas card today. Where did June go to? Hard to believe that half the year is gone already. It's been so busy with the shower, the wedding and day camp. Blissfully I can't think of any big event coming up; at least nothing as big as we've had so far this year. So here's tonight's Christmas card.


I guess I had blue on my mind. I found both the images in my scrap bin. I colored the candle from DigiStamps4Joy with Copics and the poinsettias are pre-colored from Doodle Pantry. The die cut is Spellbinder's Contemporary Hearts Pendant. I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and added gold Stickles to the middle if the poinsettias and the flame.


I am entering these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your Tuesday was awesome. Is it raining in your neighborhood? It rains everyday here. I've never seen it rain so much. Hope you aren't floating but if you have some sun please send it toward Indiana. LOL!

Donna, isn't it lovely to have a few days to catch your breath in between all the excitement that's been going on for you? It always is for me...nice to contemplate that it's 'YOUR' time to do or not - as you please. Love your pretty blue motifs on this candle with the lovely poinsettias. I really like the pendant behind the candle too, and forget I have those older S/B dies. What a pretty doily it made against the deep blues. TFS & Happy Sunday. Hugs
