'Tis the Season to Believe

      It's Monday and I'm sharing my DT reminder of the July challenge over at Jan's Digi Stamps.  Before getting to the challenge, I want to tell you that there is a Christmas in July Sale at the Jan's Digi Stamps shop. There are 36 Christmas themed sets on sale through the month of July!  In addition to that, Jan has released 3 NEW Digi Stamp Sets this month:  Believe, Sugar n' Spice and Ornaments 2022, which are on sale also.  The Ornaments 2022 set is a FREEBIE for everyone in appreciation for the support for Jan's Digi Stamps!

     For my DT card, I used one of the primary images from the "Believe" set (click on link above to see the whole set.)  I chose to use the pre-colored image because I'm still having vision problems which affect my vision and that affects my coloring.  I cut the image with a die from QuicKutz and matted it with dry embossed, green CS.  The plaid dp is from My Favorite Things and the red chevron dp is from Recollections.  A simple yet lovely Christmas card suitable for either male or female.


     If you haven't played already in Jan's July challenge, the theme is always "Anything Goes" and we'd love to see what you create.  There are tons of 'Christmas in July' themes right now and if you wanted to grab one of Jan's 'on sale' sets, you could enter other challenges as well.  
     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
