Christmas In July!

Hello Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Merry gads!  I always wait until Christmas to start making my Christmas cards.  I end up sending those cards to my close friends and  blog friends.  I have such a large family, it would take from now until Christmas to make them all handmade cards.  Well, here is my start.  I have challenged myself to  make Christmas cards at least once a week from now until Christmas!

I channeled my dear friend Lynn at Creative Crafts by Lynn to try to make CAS cards.  I have a hard time with CAS, the card just looks unfinished to me if it doesn't have some bling.  Anyway, here is my attempt, I made 5 cards.

The owl stamp is from Wild Rose Studio and the stamp is called Owls On A Branch I purchased this stamp at  Simon Says Stamps Those of you that are regulars here know how much I love owls!

Here is a close-up of the stamp.

I started coloring with Copic Markers, then I added the small details (snow, berries, etc.) with Smooch.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
