CAS Christmas in August

Last year I had no pressure for the holidays because I had made so many cards the year before. This year is the opposite story. I only had 3 cards leftover after the holidays. I was supposed to be participating in the Christmas Card Challenge, but only got January and February done. So now, here it is summer, and I feel the pressure to get some cards done and in the 'box.' This is actually a version of a card I did for a challenge a while back. I used a different CB folder this time and brought in the gold (before it was all white on white). I did 16 of these. Phew!!! These are CAS, which is needed for at least some of one's holiday cards!!!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!! Hope there is sunshine in your heart even if it might be raining outside!!!

(By the way....no stamps were 'harmed' in the making of these cards...lol!!!)

Joanne, I adore these!! Is that snowflake a sizzlit, or do you need one of those Big Shot machines for it? I love these...way to go with 16 done. I have zero done!

Hey, SnoSnotGlitterGlobPopDotRunninintheRainSpot!! Sounds like you and me have been runnin' in the same circle in terms of our monthly Christmas Card challenge. I think I did good through February, too, and got lost along the way. But you know what? That's okay, cuz I'm gonna order my Christmas cards from you cuz you make the bestest, most gorgeousest, mostest elegantest, and stunningest cards. See? Now I have no pressure! Hee!
It rained cats and dogs in our neck of the woods this weekend, but we needed it cuz it has been so dry here.
AND, I so agree with you that we need to start planning our own event!!

Joanne, I think that this Christmas card is scrumptious. I love all of the white and the touch of gold.
