Second Post Christmas in July





"There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat."

Hi, again......

I can't believe I got a chance to finish this second card!  I had started it last night, too, in a different size format but went with the smaller one to finish first to enter.  Here's my big card:

I used a lot of the same supplies, but added an evergreen sprig I won from Great Impressions  (THANKS, GI!!!)  Take a look at that little Christmas tree light.  Isn't it cute???  Thrift store find, of course.  A whole little bag of them for pennies!  :)  The ribbon was thrift store, too!!

Here's an angled shot so you can see the glittery gleam.  LOVE it!!  Thanks for visiting!

I just love this card! The snowy pine sprig and all the gold embossing and glitter make for such a festive card. That tiny Christmas tree light adds just the perfect touch...great find!

Janis said...

Thank you, Karen!! I wish I had put that light on so the bubble didn't show....but whatever!!! :) I love how the card turned out, anyway. Ha!
