7 Swans A Swimming…..


Today’s theme for our 12 Days Of Christmas challenge is a “Photo Inspiration”.  You can find the photo on the Catch The Bug challenge blog, along with all the info concerning the challenge.  Good luck!

7 Swans A Swimming

I know you are thinking “what a crazy idea for a Christmas card”, but where I live we get lots of snow and cold weather. So who wouldn’t love to be on a lying on a beach, zipping a Pina Colada, and enjoying the sun at Christmas! 

So I kept the card simple, just using white and colored card stock.  I used Martha Stewart glitter around the edges of the card.  The gems are by Crafts.  The sentiment is my own.
