Christmas in July

I am not sure about you but I am burning up over here.  We have had temps in the 100's for a week now.  They said on the news that it was hotter here in Iowa today than it was in Phoenix!  Yuck!  I am ready for winter and SNOW!


I do have a card to share for the newest challenge for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  We are having Christmas in July.  Welcome to Flourishes’ Christmas in July sale! Each year around this time, Flourishes kicks off a festive sale that is sure to warm your hearts and get you in the spirit, long before the snow starts to fly! Between now and the 31st of July, all of their Christmas sets will be a whopping 25% off! Just clickHERE to see all the fun sets that are on sale! They just got a NEW shipment of stamps to stock up so the Flourishes warehouse is stacked to the brim with Christmas goodies! There are no codes -- all stamp sets are automatically marked down for you!
 
Somehow I have misplaced all my 6x6 holiday paper pads.  I was lucky enough to find some scraps in my scrap basket to work with.  Ha!  Speaking of holiday....I can't wait for all the new holiday goodies to hit the shelves and online from CHA.

Gorgeous Christmas card Heather ...
I know we haven't had it so good here in the UK (that said it is HOT and DRY today!) But I could never stand your kind of heat ... I feel for you girlie

The weather has been crazy all over the world, Heather. We've had autumnal weather through most of the summer. Today is much better, thankfully.
Your card is everything I love about Christmas cards, traditional colours, beautiful red bow, and lovely words.

What a beautiful Christmas card! I love your sketch and stitches and gorgeous ribbon! I'd be feeling the same as you if I was in that heat. Most people would be freezing if they came here to our 70 degree or less weather. I'm sure somewhere it's perfect, sigh...
