Cool off

I live in Utah.  It's famous for snow.  But regardless of that, it is in a desert and has scorching hot, dry summers.  I hate the winter, but this week I've been pining for it.  This heat is sweltering!  So I pulled out my "coolest" looking stamps to play with, and found one of my favorites.

Stamps-There She Goes, Paper-DCWV, Rub ons-Fancy Pants, Ribbon-Offay, Twine and Buttons-American Crafts

It's designed by Tortico for There She Goes, which tragically closed its store at the end of last year.  But Tortico is now designing for My Favorite Things, so you can find her cute images there (not this one, but some really fun others).

I wanted to make a Christmas card without the standard red and green.  Think it works?  I love the teal and purple, but am not sure about that sunny yellow.  Guess summer snuck into my card after all!
