Christmas in July

Well way, way back before the postal strike a Christmas in July swap was planned at  Stamp in Canada, names were drawn and  we made and sent one Christmas card. Mine was more delayed than I had planned and it was finally received on Wednesday. The recipient of my card is a very fun lady so I knew I had to make a really fun card for her so out came my Dolly Mama which was purchased at the Butterfly Moon…..check it out it’s the banner on the right side of my blog.. I did use the traditional  colours, Ridinghood Red and the Christmas dp is from a paper pack which matches it perfect. the poinsettias were also purchased from the Butterfly Moon.
