A Blue Christmas

Alright, I apologize if you have Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas” stuck in your head this morning.  After all, it is October and it’s too early to be singing Christmas music (though I think I could sing it all the year through).  🙂

I recently received a copy of Garnet Hill’s Kids catalog, and this pretty dress is on the cover.  I love the gradient color scheme of the dress and thought I would incorporate it into a card.

And since I’ve been on a Christmas card kick, I thought I’d make a Christmas card with some non-traditional colors.  And since I was using non-traditional colors, why not use a stamp that really isn’t a Christmas stamp? 

Yes, I realize it’s a bit of a stretch to call this a Christmas card because it doesn’t look very Christmas-y.  But it does say, “Christmas Cheer” on it, so I guess it qualifies.  Oh, you could always change the sentiment if you didn’t like it.

Have a great Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
