More Christmas In July

I know, I know ... I'm still humming "If Every Day Could Be Christmas ..."  I can't seem to get that song out of my head.   It's a good one because it is fun to think about all the happy feelings Christmas brings - not sure I would want it every day though?    Well,  thanks to my stampin' friend Patty who introduced us to the challenges over at 52{Christmas} Card Throwdown,  I'm pretty sure I'll have my holiday cards done early this year.   It is funny to make Christmas cards in 90 degree temps but it does feel fun to get ideas and designs not to mention,  I do make my Mom's for her as well so starting early is good! 

I'm back with my fave AMuse Studio Christmas stamps from last year Cool Yule and Nordic Noel.   This design just might be a keeper and I'm thinking I'll make a few more of these ... love the colors and that Christmas Tree is one of my faves!     Stay Inspired!

Supplies:  AMuse Studio Grass, Lime, Cherry Shimmer Couture,  Cherry Shimmer Damask,  Stamps AMuse Studio cool yule,  nordic noel,  Ink AMuse Studio Lime, Cherry,  AMuse Studio Cherry Button Assortment,  AMuse Studio Cherry Dot Organdy Ribbon, EK! Scallop Edge Punch
