Christmas in July Swap Spoiler

Good evening! God has blessed us with another beautiful day in Northern Michigan.

Well, from my earlier post this week, you already know that I have been busy working on Christmas cards for a swap I signed up for a few months ago. At the time that I signed up, I truly had no idea just how busy I would become. LOL

I guess, because it is sunny and a high of 85 degrees outside, it was harder for me to channel my Christmas spirit. Hehe. Anyways, I will now share my cards with you.

Here is my first card. Pattern is from Originals How-To-Program.
 My second card is adapted from a Mojo Monday Sketch. (A lot of sewing!)
 Another adaptation of the Mojo Monday Sketch.
 A Heartfelt Classic Pattern from Originals How-To-Program.
 This last card was recreated several times.
 This last photo is just me being artsy. :)

So...what do you think? Would you be happy to receive these cards if you were signed up in a swap? No pressure here, but I can tell you that I spent almost an entire day making 11 cards total.

I used a retired CTMH paper packet called Jingle, as well as Jingle Creative Basics paper. Baker's twine is Martha Stewart brand, and I am hoping to see something like that carried in our new idea book premiering next month. I have done some hand-sewing and embossing, paper-piecing and coloring. Hope you like!

Have a great night!
