Christmas in July

It is 112 degrees today in Las Vegas, I just need to find a place where it is just 84, so I am going to LA  to enjoy the cool temperature, ahhhhh......


OOPS!!!!!!

edit: my husband decided to drive instead, so he called to cancel our flight to LA 90 minutes before take off, we then drove 20 miles and ..............
tire burst on highway 15, 8 miles before we reach the next town Jean, we called for Benz road side assistance, it took them 10 minutes to get back to us and 100 more minutes for the technician to come help us, my husband decided to do it himself under the heat, and 20 minutes later, we are back on the road again, only this time is towards Vegas. Back to Benz service center and they can't do anything for us today, so here I am, back in my room in Las Vegas.


to bring the temperature down, I am sharing a Christmas card in July



and this is going to enter the challenge at

"Christmas in July"

Not exactly the road trip you had in mind.....
But you spent your time well; or should I say perfect?
I love that vintage image of that beautiful tree. And your hexagon patterned background is gorgeous!

112 degrees out, I cannot fathom it, I start to wilt at 80 degrees and if it gets to 90 I've had it:O). Glad you made it back to Las Vegas OK. Your card is beautiful! I love the background it looks like a type of stained glass. Wonderful!
hugs

Oh Kirsty, what a shame your travelling plans didn't work out like they should have. If you need a place to cool down, you should come to the Netherlands, we still put the heating on in the evenings! Your Christmas card looks so cool with all these shapes!!
