It's a SASSY Christmas in July . . .

Evening Everyone!  

WOW!  What a day of clean up after yesterday's storms!  We weathered the storm fairly well here ... some down branches and destroyed some of my flowers, but my friend Gretchen in a neighboring town sure needed a helping hand today trying to bale out her basement.  The water was so high in her yard that it was pouring in under her side door and running down the steps into the basement.  What a mess!

Anyways ... I was going to post this card tomorrow but I have a very SPECIAL blog hop for you tomorrow (please stop back and check it out), so decided to share one more card with you this evening.

I just adore these SASSY images over at Sassy Studio Designs and it's time once again for their Dare To Be Sassy Thursday Challenge.  Today's theme is 'Christmas In July' and I've chosen Belle Pinup as my Sassy subject today!

I actually have been having fun making a few Christmas creations lately and it's always fun to color & create with these fabulous images.  I've kept it pretty simple (didn't have much time) and am very happy with the outcome!
