Here it is the middle of July, and that means it's time for our mid-month reminder from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog. Remember, you have all month long to create whatever you want for Christmas and link it up to our challenge.
For my card, I knew I wanted to use the strip of patterned paper strips at the bottom, so I went looking for an image that would pair well with it. And I found this adorable clear stamp from Wild Orchid Crafts that I had totally forgotten I even had. It's so cute and perfect for simple and elaborate cards alike!
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this month: Christmas is coming faster than you think!
