#4 - Chicks Rule
#5 - Christmas Wishes

And... #6 - 100% Happy

  3. These are all adorable! I really like the apple card (love the unexpected colors!) and the little pompoms on that Christmas card are so stinkin' cute!!! As always, love your work...

  4. You have been busy! All the cards are great. I especially like the Chicks Rule card with what I think of as your signature denim touch. :) God Bless.

  5. oh my gosh, you have been busy and super creative! I am LOVIN' the cards you have just posted. I am continuously inspired by your blog Julie. Thank you so much for sharing pieces with me.

  6. Hi, Julie! Just found your blog--so glad!

    We've "talked" before--I'm the Julie Campbell you've been confused for before! (Remember that Unity order a year or so ago?!)

    A few weeks ago, someone (can't remember who!) commented on something I'd made and said, "Are you the tiny, blonde Julie Campbell or another one?" I responded that I'm the tall, brunette one--at least we look different!

    I'm your newest follower--will be back for more fun!
