Christmas in July

Hello everyone,
I wish it was cold enough right now that we might get a little bit of snow. That just is not going to happen. With this terrible heat wave we have been having it brought with it a big storm on Friday night/Saturday morning. Rain, hail and 70+ mph winds. Our back yard has tree limbs all over it. Many trees in the area were taken down by the winds. Lucky the tree limbs were the only damage we had, but we lost our power for 14 hours and boy did that really throw me behind on a lot of stuff.

Ok enough about my life. LOL

Through the Craftroom Door has a new challenge up and it is Christmas in July. Wow I hope you will stop by and check out my fellow DT's inspiration. There are some really pretty cards out there. I guess everyone was a little tired of all the hot weather when they made them. :-)

My card today is colored with Copics. This is an old stamp that I dug out. I don't remember who it is by but I am pretty sure they are no longer in business. Shame they had some wonderful stamps.

I got a chance to use my new memory box die. After I cut the snowflake border I cover it with glamour dust.
The Season's Greetings stamp is by Studio G.
I used a little more glamour dust for the snow area.

Our sponsor this time around is The Paper Temptress. You could win a $25.00 gift certificate for the store. You should see some of the papers that she has.
