It's Christmas in July at Fab 'n' Funky

Good morning everyone,
Hope you're having a good week so far.  
 We were fortunate enough to miss the torrential downpour that hit the GTA on Monday.
Thousands of people were without power, some of them still, with hundreds of commuters stranded. 
It's heartwarming to see how folk pull together in times of need and hats off to all the first responders for the awesome job they do.....

now on to business...

 Anne-Marie is hosting this week's Challenge at Fab'n'Funky and she has chosen  
Christmas in July

I love this theme....it gets us jump started on Christmas cards.

ps... Pat have you ever thought of having your comments in a pop out box? It doesn't matter with only a few comments, not far to scroll back, but with someone who gets lots like you it takes ages :)
I always like to look at the card while I comment. It's easy to do just go to settings, posts and comments and pop out window in the drop down box.
