Merry Monday July!

DSCF6119

Happy July 1, peeps!  It’s Monday and that means Merry MondayLesley is taking a wee bit of a break for July, and that means our challenge will be a wee bit different!  The linky will be open all month long for you to share your Christmas creations, and it’s “Anything Goes”!!! 

She’ll be showcasing some Guest Designers as well, so make sure you check out her blog, Always Playing with Paper!

For my card, I chose to use the Festive Friday challenge 11 as my starting point:

I had several ideas swirling around in my head, but in the end, went with the trees from the retired set, Patterned Pines:

Merry Monday July - LeAnne 1

I stamped my trees in Garden Green, Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz, then cut them out and mounted them on a scrap of woodgrain paper and mounted it on a piece of white Woodgrain embossed cardstock.  The little sentiment flag is from Market Street Stamps, the snowflake is from Itty Bitties:

I hope you’ll take some time to play with us and make one more Christmas card!  You’ll be glad you did!  And be sure to check out the other designers fabulous creations as well at Always Playing with Paper!

Can’t remember if I shared this photo Dana snapped or not:
