Merry Christmas in July!!!!!!

For my followers you know I get crazy around this time. I love Christmas!! Soon I will be creating my Christmas cards for the 3 shows I have lined up so far. I can start adding them for you to get ideas for your cards. Every file I created this year, I am making a card out of. I hope they sell.

This is week one. Again, same as last year, I thought there was only 4 weeks, typical month, but I found out there were 5. So now I have to make another file when I thought I was done. lol Just my luck!

I found this clip art when a friend asked me to make Christmas lights. I thought this was different. Kinda old fashioned or Thomas Edison looking. Maybe you might have some "old time" paper that you could add.

I used my typical 5"x6.5" pre-made cards. I needed something to look like a cord. I found some ribbon which is black. I can't find the size but it's that small stuff that comes in a spool for about .33 cents on sale. I didn't have a dark green but that might look better. Here in America, the cords are green. I used the small, brass, one to keep the ribbon in place and two it just kinda looks neat. lol

One thing I need to warn you is they cut funny! Two or three would cut good out of five. So be careful and cut several. :)

Merry Christmas in July to all my friends!!!!
Hugs, Lisa
Christmas Lights 2
P.S. Sit back and listen to the music. I went a little "silly" this time! lol

These lights are so cute. Cut funny? I'll still try them, but probably not until fall. Thanks for sharing the files, Sweetie.
Hey, I have some ideas for the cord -- that metallic cording by-the-spool in the ribbon or Christmas departments. Or green craft wire, but more expensive. Both come in green and even make great little 'loops' for cards.

Hola Lisa,
I love your Xmas lights. Yes, I am sure that it'll be useful for many Xmas cards ideas. I will let you know, how it works for me during the holidays, when I start creating holiday cards. TFS,Mima
