Card Design: DS4J Progressive Christmas Card Challenge...July

http://digistamps4joy-sa.blogspot.ca/2014/01/monthly-christmas-challenge-january-2014.html
Would you look at that?  It is only half way through the month and I have my card ready to submit to this month's Progressive Christmas Challenge taking place over at DigiStamps4Joy.  Colour me impressed!  One more card to add to the Christmas Card Pot to help me avoid the yearly Christmas Card Panic, and thankfully this month, it once again looks like I'm going to achieve my goal of adding a minimum of two cards, possibly even three. Woo, hoo.  It will definitely help for those months when I don't achieve my goal.
Christmas Card Count to date: 14 

Here is the sweet DS4J image we get to use this month:

Well, one more card is finally done. Don't forget, I have a holiday card link up called the 12 Months of Christmas that you can jump in at any time and add your own holiday cards to. Click HERE for all the details. There is still almost two weeks left to link up your two cards for July in order to get your free paper for the month.

Until next time,
