A Christmas card in June

I know we are starting to enjoy the summer and perhaps you are planning the July 4th barbeque but I really have to start preparing my Christmas cards otherwise the disaster last year may happen again.

My card may look a bit busy because of the patterned paper but it was snapped up within seconds:

Thanks to the Echo Park Reflections Christmas paper pad and this awesome sketch by Sketchbook Saturday:

The deadline to link up the card to Sketchbook Saturday has passed, but I had just as much fun as if I am playing along the challenge.

Thanks to a variety of Christmas challenges I am motivated to make Christmas cards throughout the year.  I'm linking up my card to the following:

My Perfect Life - Any Christmas cards goes
Completely Christmas - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge extra - Anything Goes
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Favorite color combo (It's red, and red and lots of red for me!)
Dream Valley - Monochrome
Christmas card challenges - Inspiration photo (I kept my card so red because of the eye catching Christmas gifts)

Thanks for stopping by!
