Snow in July???

Hi all,
I have finally got a moment to chat with you. My family has been busy with many things this month including finding a new home. So as I am writing this right now we are in the processing of packing up the house to prepare for the move into our new home. Since I had a few minutes I wanted to get this out to you all to let you know I miss you all, although I have been commenting here and there on some sites and have missed entering challenges. On that note I made a card for Christmas, yes I know it's still about 6 months away but I am bound to get a head start on Christmas cards this year. So I ran across a fantastic new site on Feline play that is dedicated to Christmas cards, the site name is Weekly Christmas Card Challenges. :D  I also added another fellow bloggers site Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenges, these are anything goes every month. I looked through this site and the cards are simply beautiful by the DTmembers. So stop by and take part in these fabulous challenge sites.

Paper: SU white and Bliss Blue
Ink: Bliss Blue
Sizzix embossing folder - Snowflurries & Snowman Set
Cricut cartridge - large snowflake
Su tag punch
Ribbon from Michaels and "Let It Snow" glitter word from Recollections, gems from my stash
I sponged bliss blue around the edges.

Well I hope you get inspired to start your christmas cards too. I also have a surprise coming up this next month, so please come back to see next weeks post as its for All Crafts Challenge  and this month I am planning my very first give away.
Thanks for stopping by have a great week.


  1. Love the glimmer on that snowflake embossed paper! And the blue is a great touch. Hope you will be able to play with us every week at CCC. Thank you for sharing with us at CCC. :)

  2. Love the simplicity of this card Deb. Snow in July is not that bizarre where I live (NZ) as it is the middle of winter. Had a good frost this morning with a good layer of ice on the car. I actually find it more "normal" to be making Christmas cards now when the weather is cold. Probably should make summery christmas cards but it is not the same somehow! Hope your move goes well.

  3. Thank you for joining in Lizzy & Tamesis challenge with your beautiful card x

  4. I love blue and white for Christmas. Thank you for joining us this week at CCC. Hope to see you again in next week's challenge.

  5. Eine ganz bezaubernde Karte ist das geworden. Mir gefallen die Schneeflocken sehr. Danke für Deine Teilnahme bei der Christmas Challenge
