Feliz Navidad

Geez it was a hot one today!  
Rain came all around us late this afternoon, but not a drop at our house.  Didn't last long either.  We are still under fire alert and of course we have a burn ban.  I will be so thankful for some cooler weather.  (Yes, I know it is mid-July - I am not a summer person.  I want to summer somewhere cold!!!  Give me cold all year round!

Speaking of cold, I have a Christmas card to share tonight.

I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Stamps, flipped.  My dp is ancient Memory Box purchased at a favorite defunct Scrapbook store :( and cs is DCWV.  I stamped the Waltzingmouse image with Encore Metallic Gold, cut out with a Spellbinders die and I chose the sentiment from the same set.  The banner is from Memory Box, as well.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Crimbo Crackers - Anything goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Christmas in July
ABC Christmas Challenge - no embellishments
Creative Belli - Christmas/use old stash

Thanks for stopping by.  Margaret will be back tomorrow!
