Christmas In July

I don't know about where you are but here in Arkansas it is HOT so I made this Christmas card to think Cold...using a QKR Stampede stamp Melting Snowman . Boy that is exactly what would happen if a snowman was built outside now I don't think it would last 10 minutes. To make my card I used some Creative Memories and Bo Bunny papers, embossed snowflakes on a piece of cranberry cardstock and sanded it, then added a little faux stitching.
We are having a Christmas In July blog hop on July 23rd so be sure to stop back by then for more Christmas card inspiration.
