“I will honor Christmas in my heart…and try to keep it all the year.” -Charles Dickens
One of my MOST favorite bloggers is Kelly Lunceford. I’ve been following her for years and LOVE her creations! She combines papercrafting and sewing, frequently, which is something I want to do much more of! And she’s always an inspiration!
Last month she announced she was going to try to “honor Christmas all year” and invited us, her readers, to join her. On the 25th of each month, she is posting a Christmas project she has done, and asked us to do the same and let her know! I loved this idea, ‘cuz it’s sooo easy to procrastinate and save Christmas projects ’til November! I have extra motivation this year, too, as I hope to sell at a vintage market in the fall . . .so have lots of things to get made!
I started with a card. I had seen this idea (somewhere!!) and loved it. My buddy Katrina and I are having a “Christmas in July” workshop on July 15th this summer and this is my first project for the workshop! Love snowflakes . . .and I have several stamps and dies with beautiful ones. . . .so this card is dubbed the “snowflake card”!! I’m also a huge fan of monochromatic cards, and this is “almost” monochromatic . . .just a few touches of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The supplies for this card are all Stampin’ Up retired items.
I don’t really expect this will get you “in the Christmas mood” . . .waaaay too early for that! BUT . . . EVERY day will be brighter if we keep the “Christmas spirit” in our hearts, in love! Thanks for the inspiration, Kelly!
