Christmas Readiness

I am never ready for Christmas in December and I really have a hard time thinking about Christmas in July.  Maybe if I did more, I would be ready in December!    OWH needs Christmas cards by October 10th.  Maybe this one card will motivate me to make some more this summer.
Doodle Pantry's Challenge this month is "Make a Splash" or "Christmas".  This is a Doodle Pantry image, sentiment, and papers from the set called Deer Wishes.
The sketch is at Tuesday Morning Sketches:

I was going to use red heart brads but I had forgotten that I used all those up.  Blue looks okay too.
Instead of layering the image circle onto the Kraft scallop, I cut the Kraft into a frame and put it on top of the circle.  Fun to do that sometimes just to change the look a tad.

  6. Your card is beautiful and the image is so cute! I totally struggle with Christmas cards at this time of year too, it's far too warm to be thinking about Santa. Thank you for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown for our anything goes challenge. Kerry, DT Member xx

  11. I LOVE it Marsha! I too have a hard time making enough Christmas cards, so this year I have been playing in several Christmas challenges. Maybe I won't be stir crazy by the time I ship my cards to OWH this year :D I just love your blue and red color combo!
