Have you been roasting too...

...gosh it's been hot here.

We Brits are never satisfied with the weather - never mind what it does. Today the temperature where I live has been 80 degrees (F) that's 27 degrees (C). We also have a habit of using the F temperature scale when talking about heat because the numbers are bigger and make things sound hotter and we use the C scale when talking about the cold because the numbers are smaller and make us 'think' cold...strange; aren't we LOL

Anyhoo...with this in mind - the heat I mean - you may be surprised to see that I've made a Christmas card...no please don't choke on the ice in your Pimms - I really did say CHRISTMAS CARD. Here it is...
The design is using this weeks sketch over at "Less is More" and I will also be entering it into the "Creative Craft World" Christmas in June - Card Crazy Challenge.

The card is 6x6 smooth white CS - tent fold. The coloured strip is dark blue Bazzill CS and the snow flakes are Glitterations. The sentiment was a silver peel-off coloured blue to match the bazzill, using my Copics (I didn't have a suitable small stamp).

There are some lovely DT items over on both these challenge sites so please do hop over and have a look...or better still, why not play along....................

I'm not envying you the hot temps as it's lovely and cold here! One of these days I'd love to experience a cold Christmas. We have Christmas in July festivities here, but it's just not the same. LOL
