Christmas in July, "Peace on Earth"

Christmas in July.  A very hot day in Minnesota.  I was just thinking how nice it would be if we could mix the weather up to suit us, today I wouldn't mind some snow and cold weather.  We were blessed with a marvelous weekend and my husband and I were able to get out of town at a friend's Cabin.  Thank you for that!  On  our drive up and across the border to Wisconsin, you go through many small towns.  I have to tell you that many of the residents love to sell things along side of the road.  Strange stuff I have to say and really, you all know I love Vintage but at some point some items are just trash.  Old rusted tractors, trucks,  and you name it and we even saw half of a house 'For Sale', yes, half of a house.  I don't know where the other half went too, it's not like it walked away.  My Husband and I were commenting on all the stuff we saw and I asked, who buys that stuff?  Then he said, remember when your dad bought ...   HA!  Husbands always recall what you don't want them to remember and forget what they should remember.
Here is the "Peace on Earth" card.   I would tell you all about it but I think you already know.  You folks know stuff.   Okay, let's see, the gold snow flake which is underneath the main image is a Christmas Ornament from last year on clearance, umm.  Otherwise, you know the rest.  I do have another Christmas  card made but the photos need to be done, let's see if I can post this Christmas card and still be in July.

  12. Very elegant and beautiful card. Thank you for joining us at the 2 Sisters Challenge. I look forward to seeing your next creation.

  13. I'm with you on spliting the difference on the weather between winter and summer. I will miss these days when that snow starts to fly again. Need to move south I think, because I fret too much in August when it is still nice that summer is almost over instead of just enjoying it while we have it :P
    BTW, your card is lovely. I always love to see those deep, rich Christmas colors. Pretty stitching too. You are getting a good start on those cards. ;)
