Christmas In July?

Happy Friday!! This sure has been a fast week but I think I am glad this one is over.

Whimsy Stamps is having a challenge with a Christmas theme. Head over there and give it a try. It seemed strange to a Christmas card when the weather is so hot outside. I just tried to think cold and snow but it is a little difficult when you are burning up. The only Whimsy stamp I have so far is this Lion. I really like him and wanted to do something with him. I didn't want to use the usual Christmas colors so I went with the blue. I am pleased with the way he turned out. I do have a couple of snowflake punches that I wanted to use but wouldn't you know it, I couldn't find them with my punches. I guess I am going to have to really go through my room but they are probably right under my nose and just can't see them.

I hope you have a wonderful day and a great weekend!!
