Merry Christmas

Good Morning.  Happy Tuesday. It is still really hot and humid here.  I am wondering if we will need to wait until Fall before getting some weather that is comfortable. 

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we are thinking Christmas!  The theme is Christmas in July.  Originally I was thinking Green and Red but with it being so Hot here lately I then thought Snow!  This is a new stamp I bought at one of the conventions.  I love it and thought spending time with friends at Christmas is fun so this would fit. I cut out the snowman and bird, popped them up and then thought it needed more so I cut out the hat and feet and popped them up again.  You can't tell by the picture but it looks really cute IRL.
