CASE Thursday and a little bit of Christmas!

RJ and I just got back from the pool this morning. What a great day to be at the pool! I even have a bit of a tan!!!

I have 2 cards, so be sure to scroll down!

It's Thursday and as I mentioned last week, Thursdays mean showing you a CASE (copy and share everything) card to you. Today's inspiration comes from the current catalog, the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog on page 72.

Here is my version:

Stamps: Wild About You, Birthday Wish, Polka Dot, Well-Worn Numbers
Ink: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Night of Navy
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, More Mustard, Old Olive, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Accessories: 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Dimensionals

Isn't that a cute child's card?! I did change a few things for my card. Since I didn't have the stamp sets that Stampin' Up! used in their card, I substituted for the Wild About You set and added the Birthday Wish stamp for the sentiment. The Wild About You stamp set is on the Last Chance List, so make sure you order today if you would like to get this set before it is gone forever. It will be available until June 30th...Item 115110, $25.95.

Today is June 25th, 6 months before Christmas! I know, can you believe it? On the 25th of each month, I want to show you a Christmas card. It's never too late to start thinking about Christmas cards. Every year, I always think...if I would only start a bit earlier in making my Christmas cards. The Holidays seem like such a rush at times...wouldn't it be great to work on my cards early, so that is one less thing I need to get done during the Holiday Season! Wishful thinking, huh? Let's dream for a minute...create 10 cards each month...I would have 60 cards complete by December 1st!

Stamps: To You and Yours
Ink: Baja Breeze

Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Accessories: Texturz Plates, Big Shot, Scallop Edge Punch, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches, Dimensionals, White Organza Ribbon

I hope you enjoyed a bit of Christmas today! Like I said, I will share a little of Christmas each month on the 25th.

Have a great day!
