happy monday :) this week over at BBTB2 our super uber talented jayne has chosen our theme christmas in july. heres a way to get a jump start on your christmas cards or projects. be sure to go see what the rest of the dt has created for this fun challenge. thanks jayne! and be sure to play along with us we love it much when you do! 

i decided to get a headstart on my cards. christmas cards are my favorite to make.
i used christmas noel for the trees and deer. i added liquid applique for the snow. the snowflakes are a marvy punch. i added rock cady distress stickles to them. i also inked the cuts with colorbox fluid chalk.

i also used rock candy on the star ( (shift cut from tree)  kinda hard to tell from the photo but its there.  the sentiment is from stephanies set ( link on my sidebar to whimsical wednesdays) called snow much fun. lots of cute sayings on this set so be sure to check them out. 
thanks so much for stopping by today hope your week is off to a fun start. thank you a million for your sweet words too they always leave me with a smile :) happy crafting! xxxshelly
