Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers.
This month Carol posted our July Theme ---Since it is my turn to pick a theme for this month...I am going to once again try and get a head start on the holiday season by asking each of you to post a "Christmas in July" card. I love Christmas and have tons of holiday sets and it is a shame that I don't get to use them all year long....so am going to ask you to break out the Christmas tunes and make a Christmas card... Also, I would love to know if you have any very special Christmas traditions OR a special Christmas memory from years past.... A big thank you to Michelle for helping me out last month...I do appreciate it....
I love Christmas and I too would love to get a jump on making cards this year. I used a Penny Black stamp that I bought last year, but had not used it. And, in honor of our hostess Carol—I used a glitter pen to add some sparkle to the stocking and ornaments!
Here is a picture of the inside, with an additional sentiment by Verve
As far as a Christmas memory, I do remember heading to church on Christmas Eve and my mom, dad and I were in the car. My dad “forgot” something in the house and came out a few minutes later. When we got home, it seemed there were now presents under the tree that were not there before. Hummmm………
