Christmas in July

I spent a wonderful Saturday with my stamper club friends at Prairie Art Stamps in Springfield, IL.  Their Christmas in July open house included some make it / take its.

Judy came up with this fabulous card that incorporated several techniques. I spent a lot of time at this table creating the outside, inside, and an envelope.

Another project that Terry designed was this layered cloth ornament.  Gail made me dust off my 9th grade sewing machine skills to stitch the layers together.  I was surprised I remembered how to turn at the corners. Now if I owned a machine, I probably could whip up a few more of these.

Since my blog theme is ballerinas/fairies, you know it--my matching music today has to be the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies!

If you're in the mood to make some Christmas cards in July, hop on over to Bella Creations.  The Jingle Bella group is asking you to post 4 cards in exchange for a chance at a prize by random draw.

Hi Helene
Beautiful Christmas art.
I spied some stamping. Not sure if you are interested but our challenge theme at The Stampsmith Challenge is Christmas and you would still have time to enter. The 1st of the month allows entries that have any stamp company represented. There is a random prize draw for a gift voucher. As I say, you might not be interested.
