Happy 4th of July... let's think about Christmas cards, shall we? I know what you are thinking, "Kim has lost her mind! It is 106 degrees outside and no way in the world am I going to even think about Christmas right now."

But wait! You haven't even seen them yet! So, take a peek at the Christmas cards we will be making at my Christmas in July class this month:

See! Don't they just say, "Cool weather is right around the corner?" I thought so!

Here is a close up of the window that the little snowman is looking out of. It is all frosty and chilly. Brrrr!!! I think I need a sweater.
So, if you feel the need to come inside, cool off, maybe indulge in a great cup of coffee or some of my southern sweet tea, just give me a shout and come on over to make a stack of these cooler weather cards!
I now return you to more meteorological correct card making, with this:

This is the cute little bunny from Animal Crackers. He managed to hop out of his box the other day to remind me that he has not seen ink. Ever. So, I did what I needed to do and got him and all his cute, bubble-headed breathren out and stamped them all day today. This bunny did me the courtesy of requesting some of the new In Colors for his own, so I had to oblige. He is colored in with Melon Mambo and then matted on Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie that have been swiped over with the Melon Mambo ink. I had to add a bunch of silver "whiskers" for him since it is the 4th of July.
I hope everyone is having a safe and fun weekend. Please stay hydrated in this heat...water is your friend. And, to my new Mr. Brown...just get my order to me early, and there is a big bottle of Gatorade in it for you!
Have a happy holiday everyone, and until next time, Happy Stamping!
