Christmas in July--------

Christmas in July is still running crazy in my house! Love making the cards and I love that I can use up scrap ribbon and pieces of paper. Too bad I am just making scraps and not using them up yet! Look at the fun corner brad, I was so pleased when I found that item I love finding the perfect item in my stash.  I am still stuck on the old vintagy feel. Sorry but I just LOVE it, love the colors the look and how it takes more effort to make it look like that. I do have to complain that my inker is out of ink and my paper distresser is not working tops anymore. Anyone have any idea for paper distressing so I do not have to buy a new one?

Entering into the following! (Please notice the background tree and star paper. Its letting me enter into challenges but its subtle and I hope not over looked!

    P.S. I just use the edge of my scissors for paper distressing... run it right up the edge while holding the paper tightly, dragging the edges of the scissors kind of towards myself, in short strokes, if that makes sense. :)
