Christmas in July 2020

Hello crafty friends!  Here on the East Coast - man, it's HOT!  It's 97 degrees right now, and humid, and I'm incredibly grateful for air conditioning.  Thought I'd show some Christmas cards to you all today, so we can think cool thoughts.  LOL

I'm playing in another challenge today, one that is new to me.  It's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, and the current challenge theme is 'Santa'.  I've got one Santa card, and a whole bunch of other Christmas cards to share today!

Oh my stars...where to begin!! These are all incredible Colleen. Your frosty village with the pink snowy sky might just be my favorite, but I love them all. Hopefully the heat relief we had today will head your way. It was 98 here with a heat index of 105 yesterday and humid too. 85 and much better today!

Super cute cards, Colleen! Hmmmm...they are all so nice it's very hard to pick a favorite, but if I did, I'd choose #8. I especially like your design on this one; it's brillant! CAS and yet so elegant. 97 is hot!!! Glad you have AC (we don't). Staying in and enjoying cool Christmas Card crafting, sounds like a good plan to me!

Oh, my, you do have a lot of Christmas cards and they're all just great! Loving the first because you're so good at the collage type, but I've also always admired your gift for CAS, such as some of the cards here. So much fun to see these, Colleen! Good luck to your flowers handling the heat, and to you being out there watering them.
