Merry Christmas????

How fun is that? The weather is so delightful... :-) OK, no snow songs here... Outside the weather with heat index considered is over 100 degrees. Creating this card served a dual purpose... first to make me think cool and second to get a jump on the holidays. Our Daily Bread Designs is also having a challenge this week. Submissions need to use the same image more than once.

The ribbon actually started this whole card quest. Yesterday I made a stop at my local BigLots and found this awesome ribbon for a buck! I must be the only one whose mind starts turning with ideas when they spot new ribbon... LOL... I know it is a double post but I was so excited I had to share. Hope you are having a wonderful day!
