Christmas in August!

Hi all! So I came across this fun little blog called Shabby Chick Junk and find that Lisa is putting up a Christmas challenge to use your stash of Christmas paper in a non-Christmas card. Fun, thinks me! So I dig out my pile (and I do mean pile, as in BIG, BIG pile of Christmas paper) to pick a paper to craft with. Did I mention that the pile is really big? :-) My stash comes from finding Christmas paper 90% off at Michaels after Christmas last year. I bought these big slabs (three of them, because if one is good, three is better!!!!) and then promptly put them away for the next C'mas season. Much to my delight, the slabs are just stuffed with argyle papers in all different colorings! Happy me! I love argyle! So, I picked the blue and green one that is suppose to coordinate with snowflakes and used it with my brand new Green Thumb stamp set from Papertrey Ink. What a super fun card this was to make! So, my thanks to Lisa for the challenge, and while I'm at it, I've got to give a shout out to Papertrey Ink. I FINALLY ordered a couple stamp sets from them and much to my delight, they came super fast and wrapped in tissue with a thank you note from Nichole, Jane and Julie. How's that for awesome service along with some really great stamps! Anyway, enjoy the card and enjoy your day! Blessings to you!
