Happy CG Day!

Time for another post highlighting the Calendar Girls (their blogs are on the left, check them out)!

Carol was our hostess this month, and she wanted to celebrate Christmas in July!!


Here is my card:

She asked us to use some glitter, and I must admit it didn't photograph well. The snowflakes have glitter and the red brad is glitter-icious too!

Oops, I was supposed to tell you a favorite memory of Christmas.... One year, we had a white Christmas. My father told us all to come to the front window (all being Mom, bro and me). Out he goes to our garage and comes back "paddling" my brothers new canoe down the slope of our front yard! A Christmas I will never forget!

Oh no! Was I supposed to use glitter?! I'm such a dork!

I love the colors and use of multiple DP's on your card. Such a merry 'Lil Christmas!

What a fun memory! Too bad you didn't get pictures - that would make the best scrapbook page. This card is wonderful and fun. I am feeling totally inspired by your stash shopping - I am going to do that more!!! Hugz!
