(There are FREE templates to download, so anyone can join in the fun!) Have any of you girls started creating for the holidays yet? It is NEVER too early to get started! My Cyber Girlfriend Julie at Julie's Open Window, has gotten a jump-start with her holiday tag making! Check out her cute lil' penguin gift tags :) You know I looove to hear from you, SO tell me if you started making ANYTHING for the holidays yet? & if so what? Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Bless your heart my new friend! I hope your readers will be inspired to give the holidays a thought, if just for a moment. I have a feeling now that our temps are rising again, I may be back at something more seasonal, but there are so many new 'snowy' paper just waiting to play with me!

Julie Ranae said...

P.S. Love what you did for the color challenge. I can honestly say I wouldn't have thought snowflakes. Don't you just love how we all think differently enough to create and yet we're simpatico enough to communicate?!

Shana said...

That's gorgeous! You still don't have the a/c fixed? You poor thing. You could come over here and do your projects. :)

Brenda said...

This is such a unique choice for this challenge. You are really thinking outside the box. I can't believe you are still creative with such high temps and no A/C! That's dedication!
