Christmas in July: Index Card Art

"Why fit in
when you can
stand out?"
 
~Dr. Seuss
Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American
writer, poet and cartoonist
best known for his children's books
written and illustrated as
Dr. Seuss
 
 
Here's something that stands out:
Christmas in July
 
My
Summerlicious index card art
"Christmas in July"
 
{See how I cleverly combined Christmas symbols with a July theme?
That colossal  ice cream cone is flipped over to represent a Christmas tree! Cool!
Notice the yellow firework burst  at the tip of the cone/tree where a star might be? Nice!
I didn't forget your presents, and Santa's hat is there too!
How did I make a peppermint candy frame?  At Picmonkey of course!}
 
Amazingly Creative Son and I discovered the joy of
Christmas in July
last weekend when we walked into this ice cream shop
decorated with holiday ribbons and bows.
The teenage girl ice cream scoopers wore their Santa's Helper hats. So cute!
Christmas music played in the background.
It was 100 degrees of Texas heat outside.
Think: flip flops at the North Pole!
 
Inside the cute little ice creamery/candy store
it was
frosty and cheery and a little weird.
 So unexpected!
Joyful even!
 
Christmas in July
is celebrated
very famously here,
also here,
and here!
 Check this out too!
 
~Cheryl Gee was so enchanted with the sun and Santa concept of Christmas in July she watched "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" John Hughes' 1989 classic movie that very night because you know she's too busy to watch it in December!

~Cheryl Gee was honored to be featured by Christmas TV History!
