Christmas in July challenge

I saw this challenge on Jill's blog and thought it would be fun to enter.  Always good to get a head start on Christmas cards instead of waiting til the end of the year when everything is soooo busy.

I ordered PTI's vintage ornaments some time ago but haven't used it yet, so this was the perfect opportunity to try it out.  I  just bought a new camera (Panasonic Lumix TZ-10) which I'm also playing with. Very happy with the images so far - much better lens than my old camera!  Here's my card:

Paper - PTI stamper's select white, SU baja breeze, riding hood red, cosmo cricket Jolly by Golly
Stamps - PTI vintage ornaments
Ink - SU baja breeze, riding hood red, memento tuxedo black, PTI vintage tea dye duo
Accessories - SU riding hood red taffeta ribbon, cricut die cut tag, bow easy, 2 way glue pen, clear glitter


  1. Awesome! Blue and red is one of my very fave color combinations for Xmas cards :)

  2. This is so BEAUTIFUL!!! I didn't buy those ornaments last season but I reaaaaaallly wanted them ;)

  3. Anne, thank you so much for joining in with my Christmas in July challenge! Your card is wonderful! I love the offset background of carol music, and the vintage ornament & its bow are lovely! I like your use of blue in a holiday card too! Thanks for being a part of the fun!

  4. Hey Anne! What a lovely card! Glitter is such a must for Christmas, isn't it :) How are things in Auckland? Germany is boiling with temperatures around 35°C and I've already started to get a little less pale ;D Have a nice week, best wishes from Heidelberg! Nina

  5. LOVE your card so much -- adore these stamps! Just bought mine in May!!!
