City Crafter Challenge # 221 Christmas in July

Hi Friends! It's the fabulous Kirsty's turn to host this week and she has chosen the theme:

 Christmas in July (never too early, so YES, make a Christmas card for the challenge this week :-)
 

 

 
I hope you can play along! With it being 110 in Redding it was hard to make a Christmas card  :-) Ummm I wonder if Kirsty had the same problem? I used the stamp set from Hero Arts called Wreath of leaves. I embossed the stamp set with Shabby Shutters embossing powder. The poinsettia die is from IO and the house is PTI. Still at the coast and having a great time for my B'day!  Be back soon :-) Hugs, Char

This is a sweet Christmas card, Char!

Sounds like the heat is pretty high where you are! We traveled to Vegas at the beginning of July, and BOY was it hot! 108, 111. And we traveled to the Canyon, and on the way there in THAT desert, it was probably higher yet. Too hot for me! LOL

Glad to hear you are having a great time! Love how the write really accents the shape, wonderful card!

Lisette Baker said...
