It's Almost Time!

It's Saturday night as I post this, and I am sitting here wondering how the heck I am going to choose a favorite card from all of the FANTASTIC entries in my First Annual Christmas in July Challenge tomorrow! I'll be posting the winners sometime between noon and 2 p.m. PDT, so I know what I'm going to be contemplating in church tomorrow morning! (Shh . . . ) I think I can use some help from the Big Guy on this--I hope the sermon is something like, "How to Choose Between Cards When Everyone is So Talented." It might happen!

So, just so I've got a card to show you tonight (my crafting time has been nonexistent this week) I pulled this picture of one I made a few months ago for a neighbor. Even though I would never wear it in a million years, I do love to papercraft with orange, so looking at this card makes me happy!

Oh you are brave to paper craft in orange, I neither wear it or hardly ever use it in large quantities in paper. Your card is lovely.

You've done great with the orange! I don't use orange a whole lot in my paper crafting, but pink is one of my favorite colors to see paired with orange. Cute card!

Very nice. Definitely a happy card! I am not a big fan of orange either but it looks great on this card.

This is such a happy card! I hope I get the chance to play in your next challenge. I had every intention to play this time, but you know how it goes sometimes. I need to find a way to add more minutes to my day.

I'm another fan of orange, and actually have several pieces of clothing in that bright, happy color! :-) Great card.
