...a Bella-riffic Christmas in JULY?!...

...ok.  I gotta tell ya- I LOOOOOVE my Bellas.  My Stamping Bellas... ;)

So much so, that it's ONE HUNDRED (and two ;) degrees out and I'm having to bend my brain to Christmas time.  LOL!!!  Now, I know that LOTS of new product comes out LONG before the weather outside gets frightful, but I am so not a winter person to begin with that this is really hard for me.  In fact, I don't even submit to the mag's during this time of year because they usually want Christmas copy and well...I just don't do Christmas THAT early.

However, I pulled out some leftover (and retired) Girls' Paperie scraps and this super cute little stamp "Santa's Birdhouse" from Stamping Bella to make my "Christmas in July" card today:

Well, what do you think?  Are you hearing carols and craving hot chocolate?  I guess I've succeeded if you are...or maybe even just if you think it's cute, LOL!!!

Be sure to stop by the rest of da Bellas to see how THEY got festive today:



That's all for me.... be back soon and ENJOY a lovely weekend, everyone!

I'm praying I'm not hearing carols yet, I'm still enjoying all the sunshine and warmth of summer. But you have inspired me with this cutie. And I love the embellished flower.
