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!!!!

P.S. Sit back and listen to the music. I went a little "silly" this time! lol
