Christmassy Card.

Half of the summer holidays have gone by and I've been getting such little crafting done. But so far we've been having a lot of fun. I still can't believe the boys start JK this year and that very soon I'll have the house to myself every afternoon.


I'll need more Christmas cards for the craft show in November so once in a while I should make one. I played with the CAS style for this. Tricky because I kept wanting to add more. I'm also on a bit of a Kraft kick lately. I got a great deal at Michael's and bought a 20 card pack for $1.79. And the rub-on snowflakes and sentiment are dollar store purchases, so this is one heck of a thrifty card! I'm also super excited because I FINALLY learned how to enlarge pics on here without making them blurry. I had "googled" it a while ago and there is a lot of false info out there but I managed to find someone who knows what they're talking about.

I doubt I'll be back with anything in the next couple days so have a good weekend (long weekend, if it applies to you as it does to me!!)

For these challenges -
CAS-ual Fridays. USE RUB-ONS.
The Kraft Journal. CHRISTMAS IN JULY.
Make It Monday. ANYTHING GOES.
Creative Inspirations. CHRISTMAS IN JULY.
Thanks,
Farrah

Loving that CAS style Farrah. That was quite a deal at Michaels! When I go over to Pam's in Houston I head right on over there to their bargain stands, just in case! Jill x
