Happy Saturday!! I am so glad the weekend is finally here!! My husband has the next three days off and we are planning some fun family time away from home. We are heading up to Milwaukee for a fun trip to the Milwaukee zoo and some dinner at the Milwaukee Ale House (Yummy)!!! :)

Today's card is for Our Creative Corner challenge, which is every Saturday. This is my last week hosting and for my last challenge of the month, I thought we would try "Christmas in July".

I had something totally different in mind for a card but then it came to me to do something a little bit different. I LOVE this holiday paper from Stampin' Up! and was so glad to know I stocked up on this beautiful paper last year.

The card measures 3 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 7. I scored the card every 3 1/2". As I decorated the card, I sort of just made it up as I went along and since I had my little handy sewing machine out, you guessed it... I added some fun stitching on my card as well.


Here is a picture of the card closed. Since the card needs a little help staying shut, I added the grosgrain ribbon to it.

Please check out the other girls from Our Creative Corner, the samples will most definitely put you in a holiday mood. Well, a Christmas in July holiday mood! LOL :)

Recipe - Stamps: Naughty or Nice Paper: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Dashing Ink: Black Accessories: Ribbon, Janome Sewing Machine, Circle Punch.

Well, I hope all of you enjoy your weekend! Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments and thoughtful emails.
