Christmas in July


 I could not resist this fun blog hop, my mojo has been on vacation so I thought this would be
perfect for me!  So much inspiration  from the design team and to copy one of my own
cards, and prizes too!

 Above is my original card and below is my Christmas theme. The butterflies and snowflakes are double embossed on these two cards.
And them I kept going with pattern paper versus water coloring for some very quick and
easy Christmas cards to get the supply going for this year! These snowflakes and ornaments are cut out of gold cardstock versus embossing.
