August Joy

Good Morning Peeps!   Thought I would share a Christmas card I made for the stash.  I didn't quite make my July goal, but I am continuing to plug along.  Every card done is one less for later right?

I pulled out some scraps I had that matched this luscious ribbon I got a few weeks back.  Y-U-M is all I can say. :)  This was an effort to once again channel Tim Gunn's "make it work" mantra.  I wanted to use the scraps and I wanted to make a card with lots of fun patterned layers.  I think I might need more of the plain red to ground the card base and white/kraft chevron, but other than that the card came out pretty "joyous" I think. LOL!

Okay folks, it is August already.  I don't want to panic anyone, so I won't actually put the number of days until Christmas- it is only a few short months though.  How are you doing on your cards?  Anyone out there have gifts already?
