Christmas in July.

Well I have to do something to try and feel cooler, this heatwave is really taking it out of me!
Good morning everyone, I hope all is as well as it can be in your world...hugs.
Yesterday I was out before 8am, before the heat of the day, having a little hobble round a fairly local lake that I haven't seen before. I keep going out to try my new camera on different settings so I can get used to it :o) After 5pm I went out and found another lake that I had never seen before to do the same. I can't believe there were fairly two local (within about 6 miles) nature reserves that I didn't know were there!
These are Christmas card Nos. 36 and 37 for my own use, but in fact I have also made 52 for orders as well!

Both are white linen card folded and cut to 5x7.
Trees were hand cut from MME Card which I've had for several years.
Sentiment stamp is Penny Black, an old one.
Pearls from stash. Can't make up my mind  whether I prefer it with or without the pearls.
Both are very quick and simple if you want to make batches of the same card :o)
