We do Christmas in July at the retirement home during July so we usually make Christmas cards. This year I decided I was going to try to use up supplies I had on hand. All the smaller pieces came from the over flowing scrap drawers. I also went more CAS then I normally do. They made them yesterday and seemed to enjoy it!

All these were entered into the July Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – theme category: Christmas.

I was inspired by Unscripted Sketches #259 but then it took on a life of its own.
