It's Christmas In July!

Today starts a new challenge at Forever Friends (Christmas in July) our sponsor for this challenge is Michelle Scrapbooking.   This is my first two Christmas cards I've done so far and it's inspired me to start working on them, for all you know it surely will be around the corner before we all know it.. LOL!.  For more inspiration hop back over and take a look what the DT ladies have to offer you.    Don't forget to feature and animal on your card too, we would love to see a Forever Friends bear but it doesn't have to be.
Here's my first card using a digi from Forever Friends:
