Christmas in July?!?

If I was an ORGANIZED person, I would be making 5 Christmas cards each month...taking my time, not feeling any stress.  Instead, every year during the week of Thanksgiving, you can find me with inky fingers, knee-deep in card stock, covered in glitter, and working into the wee hours of each morning!  Will this year be different??  Maybe...with the Pennant stamp set and Pennant Punch!  Check out this cute card:
(Okay, so I know the tree on the right is a little crooked, but that's usually how our tree is!)  =)

Stamp set:  Pennant Parade (pg. 69 in new catalog)
Punch:  Petite Pennants Builder (pg. 213)
Card stock:  So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Inks:  Wild Wasabi, So Saffron
DSP:  Just Add Cake (pg. 185)
Basic Rhinestones (pg. 198)

I love, love, LOVE stamps and accessories that can be used in more than just one way.  (Remember the adorable fish made with the ornament punch??)  This pennant set makes a great card for birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, and even CHRISTMAS!!  An extremely smart designer at Stampin' Up included a tree stand and star in this stamp set to help us get a head start on our holiday cards.  Oh, I'm sure I will fall in love with some of the holiday stamp sets and designer series papers that will be featured in the holiday mini catalog (which will be mailed to you in September), but for now, I'm going to crank out a few of these.  Maybe, just maybe, I won't have to burn the midnight oil in November!

Happy Stampin'
