Charmingly Cool!

Thursday, September 1, 2011


We've had record temps here in Texas lately that have got me wanting to move to a cooler climate. It was 108 this past weekend and we are still sweating it out here! Yikes!!! Thank God for Texas Sweet Tea and Air Conditioning. :)

Since I'm trying to keep cool I've got a Christmas card to share with ya today! {I'm determined to get my holiday cards done early.} I've kept this one sweet and added a pretty bloom from Hobby Lobby.


I love this reindeer and the MME paper.
I think it looks great with the chocolate cardstock.

Have any of you started on your Christmas cards yet?

Hope you are having a great week!

Such a cute card, Angi! I adore that little reindeer and that fabby sentiment. Such a pretty flower, too. You are so good to be working on your holiday cards. :)
Yucko on that heat! Enough already, right? It's still hot here, but it's starting to cool down in the nights finally. This morning was decidedly crisp at 6 am. I can feel Fall a-coming!
