Christmas 19.....

..... a card to make you think cool.....

Good morning everyone, I have given up on trying to sleep, it's 5.45am and I have been up more than an hour now. I hope the heat isn't affecting you as badly as it is me! Anything over 20c is way too much for me, and it was 35c when I went to work at teatime yesterday. Thank goodness it is cooling down for the weekend

Anyhow, I digress, so here is my card for today.

I made this one simply to give me a reason to use my new Memory Box die set. Both the fence and  trees die come from the set of 4.
Basecard is my usual white linencard, folded and cut to fit 6x6 envelope.
I then cut and aperture with Spellbinders die. Paper inside the card is from HOTP and I have had it for at least 8 years. I know that because I haven't bought any papers for about that long!
All diecuts are cut from a slightly off white glittercard.
Leaping deer also cut with Memory box die and the tree inside the card punched with Woodware punch. "Icicles" punched with Martha Stewart.
I will add sentiment if and when required :o)

Miserable hot here in the Northwest Jackie, to hot for me. I think I have that center die and love the drippy edge punch for your icicles and fun holiday design. Very clever.

So sorry to hear you're suffering that much with the heat Jackie.. I must admit, it's a bit too hot for me, though I did sleep!

I bet making this card cooled you down slightly though, as it's a perfect snowy scene.. love how you did the inlay!!

Big hugs

Wonderful cards since my last visit Jackie. I do feel for you with this heat. My conservatory was 44 degrees yesterday, I took a photo and sent it to the girls who told me the Derby was hotter than Cyprus, yikes. Hope it gets cooler for you soon. Tracey x
