Christmas in July

Hello! I want to share this card I made a long while back.  I have quite a few draft posts with cards/projects I haven't shared yet.

If I remember correctly, I followed one of Jen's sketched at Deconstructed Sketch.  I am having really bad memories these days.  People say the baby took some of my memories.  LOL

I used this adorable Miss Madelynn from the first The Greeting Farm Twinkle Tots series. I couldn't remember her name so I had to search the web. LOL  Have I ever told you guys I am really really bad with stamp names?  It's true!  I simply can not keep up with them!  I guess because there are so many, I have so many??  Maybe it's just me..  LOL

Farm Fresh Friday is to use Dies or punches.  I used both on this card so it's perfect for the challenge!
 


Anyone want to guess what I have been up to?  :)  Jewelry!  For the past couple of weeks, I have been working on earrings and bracelets.  I made eight pairs of earrings and eight bracelets so far.  I am working on listing them on my Etsy store.  I am thinking of having another Etsy store just for my jewelry.  Should I? Any suggestions?

Okay, I want to do a little survey.  What type/kind/style of necklace, earrings and bracelets are you guys interested in?  I am thinking my next jewelry project is going to be my August Sketch Challenge prize.  Any ideas?

Alrighty, gonna get some zzzz's before the little guy wakes up.  Have a great one, everyone!

I love what you did with that image. I have that stamp but never used red on her....so sexy. I also never imagined her on a Christmas card but it fits very well. Excellent work!

Adorable as always Kim! I don't think it's having the babies that makes us forget, maybe it's the lack of sleep?!!
:Dxx

Leanne said...

Woo Hoo!!! This is awesome Kim! The contrast in all the bright colors with the black is awesome!! She's sooo pretty too. Love this Christmas themed card. Oh and those flowers are gorgeous!
Anything you make will be awesome!
And I agree with Denise, it's lack of sleep that takes your memory, it's called Mom-nesia! lol!
