Why not join me and get a jump start on your Christmas cards? If we begin now, they might be done by Christmas and we wouldn’t be stressed.
This weeks challenge at Late Night Stampers is a Christmas in July card. My current Christmas paper has not arrived so I used Pink Flamingo designer paper and the nontradional color of Cameo Coral. I really like how the card turned out. Hope you like it too!
