Crafty Gals July Challenge

Welcome Back Blogging Friends!

Today, I have a challenge from the Crafty Gals Blogging Group over at SCS.  Our host this month is

So our challenge this month....

Christmas in July! And since clean and simple cards are my very favorite your challenge this month is to make a clean and simple Christmas or Holiday card. I can't wait to see all of your holiday cards!

Well, I thought about this all month.  I struggle with the CAS cards a bit, but I finally looked around enough and found some inspiration from Laura Williams in the November 2010 Card Maker magazine.

Sentiment:  Brother Sister Design Studio
Paper:  Red & Stripes by MME, I have no idea who the holly paper is by.  It was in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time....


  1. Great card! Christmas cards in July are always fun! You did a super job with this one! :)

  2. Great job on the challenge. That is a cute snowman!

  3. This card is great, Athina, especially on a day approaching 80's! hehe I love that you used the "tearing" technique. Very effective here!

  4. I saw many of us struggling with the challenge and I thought that is what a challenge is all about... but we did it and your card is another great creation for our group. Well done Athina!!!. I made three attempts before the one I posted... couldn't do it... why it is that hard when it says... "Clean and SIMPLE"???. We are very complicated I think... LOL.

    1. I guess I never thought of us as complicated!! Too funny. This was actually my second card. I can't say it will remain my style, but it was definitely a good challenge. Thank you!

  5. Love the torn paper touch! The stamp is so awesome too. Great card Athina!

  6. You did a wonderful job with the challenge, Athina! Love the torn paper and cute snowman image!

  7. Great card Athina! With 100 degree temps here the snowman looks very refreshing and fun

  8. The look you got with this image is very cool. Has that vintage feel to me:)

  9. Oh man, I love that sentiment!! Great card.

  10. I like the torn edge on your card. Nice job.

  11. very cute! I love the torn edges :)
