Christmas in August

Hello.

I have a Christmas card to show you, a shaped card I made.



This adorable Magnolia image is called Tilda Santa's Little Helper from the So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009. She is available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.

And for the shape of the card, I made use of my Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Twenty dies--I love this shape! As you can see, I made this into an easel card.



The sentiment I used here is from the Just Rite Stampers A Merry Little Christmas Set.




A few challenges that I am entering with this card:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Challenge 15 - Easel Cards
Stamptacular Sunday - Challenge 124 - Fancy Folds
Papertake Weekly - Grow Your Own (flowers)
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Merry Christmas
Just Magnolia hAnglar & sTanglar - Week 119 - Holiday Fun
JustRite Friday Challenge #056 - Shaped Holiday Card or Tag


That's it for now. Just a short posting here.
Thanks so much for dropping by. Your visit is always very much appreciated. Enjoy your day!

Stamps: Magnolia Tilda Santa's Little Helper, JustRite Stampers A Merry Little Christmas set.

Cute shape card Norma. Sorry for the late checking on this card. Although I am so unfortunate getting a summer cold right now. I am resting at home from work today, but it gives me a little chance to catch up my 250+ emails sitting in my INBOX, lol :o)
Hugs.

I am a traditional Christmas color fan - I don't need any new fangel colors. If it ain't broke don't fix it my Mama used to say. Now where was I - I love the design work and the papers and your coloring is grand!!!!!!
