Christmas All Year Long; BC109 - Christmas in July; Magnolialicious Highlites Sketch Challenge

My card today is for the Blogger's Challenge #109 - Christmas In July. I decided to use the sketch for Magnolia-licious Highlites for this Christmas card. This is also my July Christmas card for my Christmas All Year Long monthly posts. I am a day early on this Christmas card. I am making up for being late in the past.


I used an image that I received in the image chain for Magnolia-licious. You might think an image chain keeps you from needing to buy stamps, but it actually has the opposite effect. Once you use the image, you sort of feel the need to have that stamp.

I am short on time this week, so I will come back at a later date to give more details, but did not want to delay the post, so I included some closeup pictures to include more detail.






Have a great weekend!
