Christmas in June? !@##$%&*

Sorry, but yes, that's what I said. Today I made my first Christmas card for this year and, ohhhh, it felt so good! It came about as a result of the Challenge #16 over at Captain Crafter. We were to use three different colours for the card, but they could not be used as the base. So, while rifling through ALL of the SU colours which I now have, I pulled out two that were definately Christmassy. The third just jumped into my hands while I was holding the other two. And this card was born.
I distinctly recall stating in a previous post that I love this set and you would be seeing it over and over and over again. I kept that promise. Don't you just love Christmas. Now that I'm thinking along those lines, I may just make about six different cards and send them to my daughter and my son to take into their workplaces to see if I can drum up some business. When it gets really, really hot in July and August, I'll be cool making Christmas cards.

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Handsome Hunter, gold shimmer
Stamp: Crab & Co.
Accessories: White Perfect Puff, Prismacolor Markers
