Who can't wait?

Wow! it is HOT today! I've been sitting in the shade reading but came indoors  for a while to cool down- nice and cool in here as I've had windows and curtains closed to keep out the heat. I'm not complaining about the sunshine- we waited such a long time for this lovely weather, I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts and will be back outside before too long!
In the meantime I'm taking the opportunity to share a couple of Christmas cards I made before I went on holiday. I used some cute Colorado stamps, coloured with  markers and various DP from stash, most of them scraps and this sketch from Cheerful Sketches

 Thanks for visiting today, I'm off now - my book is calling!
