Decorating The Tree

I thought I would be kind to you all and give you a break from my
cards featuring poinsettias. Don't relax too much though, because
there are many more to come.

In Australia, my square cards (150x150mm) are quite expensive to send 
through the post, so as I have to mail the large majority of my cards, 
I have made quite a few DL (rectangular) sized cards.

A closer look at the super-cute bear and little bunnies, busy
decorating their Christmas tree.

Inside my card matches the front. Because the words "Merry Christmas" are
repeated all over the DP, I decided there was no need for a special greeting.

Here in Australia, we still have 2 weeks of spring left, yet today, where we live in the Hunter Valley, it was an horrendous 39oC in the shade on our verandah...some parts of the State (NSW) reached 45oC!!!! There are many bushfires raging out of control, but thank goodness not nearby. I think for once the weather experts are correct in predicting a horror summer...high temps, high winds, little or no rain, and low humidity (today was 21%). These are perfect ingredients for massive bushfires.

It is still extremely hot outside, so our airconditioner is working very hard. I am off to have a cool shower and try to get some sleep, so until next time, thank you for visiting.
