Christmas in July!

Hi friends! 
 I hope your weekend is bound to have fun moments and happy memories!
Thank you for the well-wishes ♥
I'm feeling slightly better and moving on forward as we're still
enjoying summer here before the dreaded 'back to school'
in just a couple of weeks! :(
Did you know there is 152 days left until Christmas!
I know, hard to fathom!
But it's true -- and although it seems like a lot of days,
we started with 365 ... and almost half of those are gone - WOW!
Riley and Company's bi-weekly challenge is Christmas in July.
That's always a fun theme!
Most of my stash of Rileys actually include winter/Christmas theme :)
They are not only super cute but make adorable holiday cards,
and you can cater them to just about any profession, theme, etc!
For today's card, I used Wreath Riley and paired it with some holiday papers.
You can find this Riley and many, many more right here in the shop!
Of course, we'd love for you to play along!
If you upload your card/project to Splitcoast Stampers please include the keyword Riley1514.
Thanks for stopping by!
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!
