Are we all warm enough yet???? It is sooooooooo hot here in Idaho that even the bugs are dying!!! (The only silver lining I have found!) I have to water my garden twice a day. I can't have the stove on (Okay, TWO silver linings...no cooking!), or have the lights on, or do ANYTHING in the house.....even craft! So it is fortunate that I had played with this Santa stencil and embossing paste several weeks ago. I am squeaking in with this card at the last minute for the June Rudolph Days over at Scrappy Mo's.
Although I am happy with the way this card turned out, this stencil is not really my style. It is a gently used retired brass Quietfire Santa and Reindeer stencil and I have used it only this one play session. I decided that I would offer it as a giveaway to a commenter who would like to have it. Maybe nobody wants it, but if you are interested say "Yes, please to the stencil" in the comments. This giveaway is open until 11:59 pm Pacific Daylight Time, July 7, 2021. I will send this gift WORLDWIDE....just like Santa does!

Hope you liked my card. I was wishing a snowy scene would make me feel cooler, but it didn't work. lol... (Feel free to remind me that when we had snow in May I said I was very ready for the warm weather to get here!!! Arrrrgh!) Stay safe if you are in one of the severe weather regions!!
