Christmas in July--literally!!!!

I went to the Christmas in July open house at Prairie Art Stamps in Springfield, IL and made two holiday items.  At Judy's station, I stamped, inked and colored this adorable post card.  Here's the back of  it:
This was so much fun, that when PID put up their challenge today to make a postcard using PID images, I decided I'd jump right in and make another postcard.  I'll post that one later.

This could be the start of a real trend for me because I'm also in the Pages In Time Mail Art Group and anxiously awaiting my first mail from another PIT groupie.



But I digress.... Back at the Prairie Art Stamps Holiday Open House, I also went to Karla's and Dawn's table and made this fun tag.  They had the pieces cut out; I just had to stamp, paint, glue and assemble.  We used silver embossing ink and Twinkling H2Os.

My next post will be some awesome birthday cards made by my DDs.

Those are stunning! Between your blog and DS asking if it's Christmas yet, it can almost be felt in the air!
