Creative Tuesday's "Christmas In July"

 Woo-hoo!  This Christmas date is going on in a tropical place, although the characters have insisted on dressing still with the colors of the season, as well as the layers.

It's July in this magical, tropical world-- the sun is brightly shining and smiling down on these two lovebirds.  There are actual lovebirds flying about-- bluebirds, and a few of them are even holding holly (which I previously had thought was interchangeable with Mistletoe, as can be seen in this 2011 C.T. entry: http://craftydvl.blogspot.com/2011/12/creative-tuesdays-mistletoe.html ).  With candy canes, sweaters, red, and green, this guy and gal are enjoying Christmas.  And with Palm Trees and A Happy Sun, they can enjoy it in July :-p
