Default WT226 Christmas in July (07/09/09)

It's July and we've all heard of Christmas in July. I thought it would be fun to challenge you to take a break from the heat and create some fun cool themed Christmas cards. For some it can be a bit of a challenge designing out of season but for others, it's a fun chance to get ahead. Whatever your feelings...have fun with the Christmas in July challenge by getting a head start on those Christmas cards, Christmas-themed gifts or altered projects. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Please remember to put WT226 in your keywords section and post a link back here. Have fun with the challenge. It's a challenge not a contest and please only upload creations that are new to the gallery for this challenge.

Thanks to Melody for hosting last week's challenge for me! I hope you all had a great long weekend!

Thanks for playing along!

Oh good - I need some motivation to get a move on with my July quota of cards. So this sounds good to me. Thanks, Julia.

Thanks, Julia. You gave a kick-start to a Christmas project I have. Here are my Christmas Candles. I'll be back to make comments after I take my mom to the doctor's.

A quick and easy card from me. Now that a delivery I've been expecting since Tuesday has arrived, I can head into town to do some shopping. Back to comment later .

WOW! It's awhile since I got to play a challenge. I sure miss seeing your wonderful cards. My kids sports are all done for now, so I'll be able to make cards, whoo who! Today, I got up early so I created one for this challenge...it is 100 degrees here too. I'll post it shortly.

Here's my card for the Christmas in July challenge!

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=56855

I have no "Merry Christmas" on the front - I found I didn't leave room to stamp one but it can be put in the inside!
