Tussie Mussie & Christmas in July

There has been a lot of swap creating going on in my church studio lately. The tussie mussie swap from the junk drawer and Angelina's card's Christmas in July swap are two in which I am participating. Dolly and Joy, if you want a surprise don't peek!




The tussie mussie is filled with shells, something my partner likes. I also plan to add another surprise, but I'm not telling incase she is reading this! If you look closely, you will see the handle is trimmed in aqua/green little seashells and sparkley pink beads. My favorite part is the rhinestone trim.


These are a few of the Christmas in July cards that I created for my partner. I actually created a card that isn't pink, but it does sparkle:)
