Christmas in June

It's time for another Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge!  Oh, and they threw for me for loop this time.  The challenge this month is to SEW on your card.  Aack!  I'm so not good at sewing.  I used to sew a lot when I was young - I made a lot of clothes for my Barbies back in the day - but that was a long time ago.  But I was a trooper and went for it!

I've been wanting to use this Melissa Frances paper collection for a while so I thought the time had finally come.  I took one of the patterned papers and cut a corner off and then sewed that corner onto another patterned paper.  I really like how it came out but I kind of wish I had a red or green thread to use.  I would have really liked to add a ribbon but I wanted to keep it mailable so I limited myself to adding a few jewels.

I made three of these cards (I ruined the 4th one!).  You should really check out the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge.  It's a great way to get your Christmas cards done early!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
