Christmas in June?

Hello!

I've been thinking it is about time to start making Christmas cards. Last year I almost exhausted my supplies. If I don't start now I'll never have enough for this year! I've been wanting to join in over at MUSE Christmas Visions, and finally I have done it. Yay!
I used SU! Dasher with a Mama Elephant sentiment. The background is sponged distress ink and glimmer mist. It's nice and "Twinkle-y". :-)

My inspiration came from the MUSE Christmas Visions card by Betty.
I took the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
So, one card down, about one hundred left to make. ;-)

Thanks for visiting!

Love your take on the card. I can't believe you're starting Christmas cards already! I start them like two weeks before Christmas . . .admittedly not the best plan ;)
