Sheetload-Christmas In July


Hello and happy Monday! I found out about this great contest going on at SheetLoad from my friend, Etha--check out her entry--it's just adorable! There are 3 fabulous looking prizes to win, but there is only about 7 hours left till the deadline, so get crackin and make your sheetload of holiday mini's today!
Here is the 411:- Using the July Monthly or Mini issue, create a card based on the sketch.- Upload it to your BLOG and create a post about the contest OR upload it to a PUBLIC gallery (ie: gallery cannot require a password to view images)- If you are a blogger, make sure there is a link in your blog post back to SheetLoad- Leave a comment on their post with a link to your card.
Timeline:- Cards must be uploaded, and your comment must be left on the SheetLoad contest post by Midnight CST on Monday, July 28th.
I made my cards using the new stamps set from Lizzie Anne Designs called Holiday Lane. Since these cards only measure 3x3", I couldn't use any of the houses and shops in this set--instead, I used the tiny little accessory stamps--snowman, tree, fence, rock wall, lampost--and this is the result. My patterned paper is from Stampin' Up(last years Wintergreen collection) and I added a candy cane charm brad to each to embellish. These were fun, easy and now I have at least 6 cute little cards already made for the holiday season, whoo hoo! Thanks for visiting and I hope you get a chance to share your sheetload contest entry too! hugs and happy stamping!

I love your cards! They are so very cute! I love the images, sentiment, and cute placement of the ribbon. That's a perfect ribbon style for mass production, since ribbon is so very dear (especially in retired In-Colors!). Thanks so much for your very kind comments at my blog! Good luck to you as well!
