{christmas in july} TPV

The Paper Variety is having a Christmas in July challenge!  This is the first challenge with the new DT and there are some really wonderful projects that have been linked to the blog.  I love making Christmas cards so I put one together.  :)  It became a GC holder quite by accident!  *laugh* 

I cut an SRM sticker sentiment in half putting the second half inside:

I'm also going to send this to Paige at the CREATE blog.  The new challenge is to use twine.  :)

My friend, Val made it into the First Round of Gallery Idol! Congrats, my friend!  The 20 finalists had 3 days to make a card with a homemade embellishment.  Check out the cards here. Voting gets them into the next round.  If you have a minute, sign up and vote for your favorite! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be happy.  :)
