August Snowflakes

We've had a VERY uncharacteristicly cool summer here in MI this year.  The rest of the country seems to think we've been melting (I was asked, actually, if I was dying in the heat.  On that day, it was a high of 70.  Low of 55.) but we've been cool and comfortable.  Until today.  August is usually a miserable hot month in Michigan.  Your skin feels like it's boiling and you down tea and water by the gallons and still don't feel a lot of relief.  Well, guess what? It's been damn near ninety for three days and you know what you do for that?

You make a Christmas card!!

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  Sure all the sparkly goodness doesn't come across on screen, but I promise you that all that glitters is silver, pink, red and white.

I'm entering this in:

Thanks so much for looking.  I'm off to start my Halloween projects.  Laters!
