A Few More Christmas in July Cards

Good Morning...I hope everyone is having a great week. A BIG Welcome to my new followers. I'd love to see your work, but there isn't always a link to your blog when you sign up to be a follower. When you sign up to follow my blog, please leave a comment with your blog address so that I may visit you and become a followers as well. 

I haven't had much crafting time, but I wanted to share with you the cards I've made since my last posting. I'm having so much fun doing Christmas cards and have a pretty good start on them. Hopefully I won't be overwhelmed come Christmas time...so keeping with the "Christmas in July" theme this is what I've come up with. We had the chance to spend some quality time with our good friends Kathi and Bob on Saturday. Kathi was able to take a look at our camera settings. The first two cards were taken after the adjustments...while not great, much better...at least the reds are not orange! I am sure with a few more adjustments it will be perfect! Thanks Kathi! Since I am pressed for time, I will keep the chit chat to a minimum but, if you need more information, you can always email me for the recipe or supplies used. I used Memory Box dies for the bird and the swirl for this first card, along with Peachy Keen holly stamps colored with Copics and Glossy Accents added ---  
The tree on this card is a Quickutz die. I THINK the sentiment is from Inkadinkado that was heat embossed with gold embossing powder---
I love this "Deck the Hall" song sheet background and would love to share the link with you...however, I failed to save the web site...BUT I did save the picture to my computer. If you would like a copy, please email me. The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.
This last card features a snowman die from Go Kreate with Cuttlebug embossing folders and a computer generated sentiment---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and have a wonderful week. See you next time!

Once again you have come up with some fantastic Christmas cards. Each is so different from the other. The Memory Box bird is adorable and a must have. I love what you have done with the Quickutz tree and I'll bet the embossing is really awesome in real life. I would love the Deck the Halls music sheet, I will email you and what can I say about that cute snowman...way too cute!

Your cards are just truly works of art. I love the first two so much. The snowman is also cute. I hope you always have time for your card making even if it is less. Have a good week.

Fabulous Christmas treasures, Kelly! Couldn't help but spend time studying each card closeup and being amazed at all the special little details you added to make each a one of a kind treasure. My fave is "Deck the Halls" I love the traditional colors and the tree of kids is just so adorable! Your creative genius is fabulous...I wish I had even a teensy bit of the talent you have for consistently coming up with such beautiful keepsakes.
