Christmas in July
This has been lots of fun.  I spent most of today putting cards together.  I had already covered the fronts, made the die cuts, colored the digis, etc.  That really helps!  So here are some of today's works:
 This penguin is another of the leftover Christmas tags from last year.  I was feeling ridiculous when I realized how many were unused, but now I'm so glad!  They're great to use for these cards.  Oh, the base cards are also recycled from a box I found left in a drawer for several years.  Some of the envelopes are even addressed already!  Bad me, I didn't mail them out!
 The snowmen and all Cricut cuts are from the Winter Woodland cartridge.  I love this cart!  I used my white gel pen to add a little snow to the trees in the background.  Joy is on a piece of prismatic gold paper from  1 lb. pack of scraps I bought when I first began creating last year.  It has been a lot of fun!
 Isn't she cute?  She's one of the two Knobby Knees I bought from Bugaboo.  I want them all!  I am disappointed in my red pencil.  There must be one out there that is REALLY red, so that will be my big search for the next year.
  This image is from A Day for Daisies, which I absolutely love.  Their images are so delicate.  The card is very simple, just one piece of patterned paper under the white.  Simple seemed to fit.

Thanks for looking.  I hope you have all enjoyed Christmas in July as much as I have!
