Christmas in September

Hello sweet visitors and welcome to my blog.  Hope you are all having a fantastic day.

Can you believe it's September already??  Read somewhere that it's only about 16 weeks to go 'till Christmas!!   Unbelievable!!!!

I'm here to share another of my Christmas cards with you.  I am trying to get as many done as I can  before the rush begins in November and although I haven't done as many as I wanted, I do have more than at this time last year and that's a good thing!

Used scraps again for this card.  I know the base paper is from Kaisercraft but have no idea where the rest came from.

The white bloom is available at Megs Garden but the rest of the cluster is from my stash.

Finally using up some of the gold stickers I've had in my stash for ages.  I do like that little touch of gold for Christmas ..

.. and I added a few seed beads as well.

The inside, decorated in my usual style .. the small chippy bauble is from Scrapmatts.

Popped some dp on the back as well, just to cover the ribbon.

I actually should have had about 16 Christmas cards by now but I've actually only completed 8.  Rather sad, huh??   Still, as I said at the beginning of this post, I have more now than I did at this time last year .. is good!!  LOL!! 

Just a little side note .. I entered my previous Christmas card (Christmas in Ausust #2) into the challenge at Christmas Card Challenges .. and I WON!!  Just want to say a big thank you to all the lovely people over there for choosing my card .. I am thrilled to bits!!  Thank you all so very much.

And thank you, lovely people for visiting my blog and taking a look at my little creations.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day.
Take care and God Bless.
