This image is Bernadette from Kraftin Kimmie. The sketch I used is from Tara over at the Kraftin Kimmie blog. What I want to know is how Tara managed to make a card without flowers? I hardly recognized Tara's card. The pink and lime green are not traditional Christmas colours but I think that they highlight this cute little bunny.

Christmas presents

This little cutie is from Lili of the Valley. The background papers are from Imaginisece - Cottage Christmas. I love the colours in this 6x6 paper pad and tend to not use them so that I don't use them up. The embelishment is from K Company - Christmas Cheer grand adhesions.

My guys have gone golfing for the weekend so Molly and I are getting lots of crafting time to finish up the Christmas in July cards.

Music Notes

When I was blogging I stopped at the Little Red Wagon site and found that the challenge this week is Music Notes. Music cards are my favourite to make. I coloured up this little Creeper from Greeting Farm a while back when my sister needed cards for the music teacher but I haven't gotten around to posting until now. The flower embellishment is from Basic Grey.

Clara at Christmas

I am still working on Christmas cards. This is Christmas Clara by KraftinKimmie. I coloured her with copics then decided to paper piece her dress so that the colour would match the background paper. I have finished the inside with the sentiment that comes with Clara.

Drummer Boy

I have started my Christmas in July collection of cards. I find if I start Christmas cards this month, then October doesn't seem as hectic. I have used the High Hopes Rubber Stamp "Best for Him". The sketch is from Deconstruction Sketch Number 9.
