Christmas in June

In anticipation of having enough Christmas cards to send out, I joined the DigiStamps4Joy Christmas challenge.  I also joined Lady Anne's Christmas Card challenge (2 cards a month).  I have kept up pretty much with the DS4J challenge, but have fallen behind in the other.  I decided to check Paper Playful for Christmas challenges to get some inspiration.  I found Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge. So, I decided to enter it this time. 

I used the digi from DS4J.  If you haven't checked out their Christmas challenge, do so now here.  Send an e-mail to Desire and she will send you the image for this month.  It's never too late to do so.

For this card, I used red cardstock from Recollections, gold shimmer sheet, image from DS4J, ribbon from Michaels, flowers from Wild Orchid.  I ran the gold shimmer sheet through the E-Bosser with a Tim Holtz Alterations Christmas folder. I used Wink of Stella glitter pen to color between the fence posts, Ice White Pearl Pen on the top if the mailbox and fence posts and White Opal Liquid Pearls for the falling snow.  I colored the image with Copics.

Challenges entered:  Use gold or silver or both (gold shimmer sheet) use their image ribbons or bows flowers


  1. Margaret this is just so beautifully designed and coloured. Loving poinsettia spray and the image is beautifully coloured. Thank you for taking the time to use this month’s free Christmas image. You have automatically qualified to receive next month’s Christmas image for free, which will be emailed to you at the beginning of July.
