It's beginning to look a lot like... hold the phone! No way is it time to start getting Christmas songs stuck in my head, LOL!
But I guess that doesn't mean I can't make a Christmas card a bit earlier than usual, especially since this week's challenge over at ATS is Christmas in July. At first I was having a hard time getting into the spirit of things and I chose Snowflake Fairy Neva so that I wouldn't be tied to having to use traditional Christmas colors. My original plan was to do a green, white and blue/silver color palette that I was going to build around this AC tree paper that is actually part of their summer/camping line. Though when I started going through my Christmas papers this sheet of Girl's Paperie red snowflakes and ledger totally won me over. I shouldn't have been surprised, considering that was my absolute fave Christmas line from last season's releases (still SO sad they are no more...). So I embraced the red and green instead of fighting it and went to town.
I still can't say that this makes me want to start making a bunch of Christmas cards but I did enjoy the little break from my summer colors and papers and Neva is always a joy to spend some time with. :)
