Greetings from Cape Cod! Apparently I am taking the word vacation to heart and forgot about posting this Christmas Tilda card for the Magnolia-licious Challenge! LOL! So sorry about my late posting for today.

The Magnolia-licious Highlites blog is having a Christmas In July challenge! You can read all the deets here. But lets just say that there are PRIZES involved!!!!!!!! :) Now, I know that you people like FREE stuff!!!!! LOL!

The Magnolia-licious DT has made some yummy-scummy Christmas cards with our favorite Magnolia Stamps that can be viewed on the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog. Or there are links to their blogs right there to the right on my side bar>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Well, I got my first sunburn of the season yesterday. We went to the beach for just a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. My friend Tracey and her kids came down for the night and we had a great time. I was the whitest person on the beach. I am not kidding!! people put their sunglasses on just to look at the glare coming off my legs. So, foolishly, (as usual), I thought I wouldn't put any sunblock on because we were only here for a few hours in the afternoon and it was overcast and I could use a LITTLE color. hmmmmm....I am pretty sure that anyone with Irish heritage is laughing by now, because we ghosts don't ever get a little color....we just get BURNED! RED RED RED! LOL! Sunblock will be heavily applied when leaving the house from now on. I think all that previous rain washed out my memories of sunburns. Actually...I do this every year! DOH! But the kids had a good time. At least I do apply sunscreen to their perfect skin. :)

I will try to post again tomorrow! I got some CHA peeks for you!

Have a Marvelous Monday!

Very pretty Kerry! I love the way you colored her coat. It has such depth!

I hope you're enjoying the cape! I feel like summer is flying past me timewise, but with the weather it barely feels like summer. What a weird year!

Beautiful card as always! I love looking at your creations.

As for the sunburn...I can total relate! I am Scottish and Irish and can't tell you how many times I've just been told I need to get a tan. Right like my heritage will allow that! LOL. Put some aloe on it and relax.
