High Hopes Challenge

High Hopes Christmas in July challenge. This was tough I guess I am not in the Christmas mode right now. Living in Minnesota and Christmas makes me think of snow and cold. NOT ready for that. Well, I did buy this stamp last year for this Christmas. I have a family that likes the outdoors and fishing so I thought this was perfect. I think this one turned out great. I am going to do something similar for mine. I will have to change the layout because of postage.
