Totally Gorjuss 45 Christmas in August.

Good morning everyone. If you're reading this on Saturday morning Mr Blogger has kindly published this post for me. I am off to an all day crop to celebrate my local craft shop being open for a year. Can't believe this year has passed so quickly!

But as the title suggests over at Totally Gorjuss our challenge this week is Christmas in August. So dust off your Christmas stamps and DP and take the chance to make a start to your Christmas cards.

This week we are being sponsored by Cupid Stamps.

I used :-
Image :- LOTV.
DP :- MME.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Card Candy and Poinsettia :- Craftwork Cards.
Other flowers :- EK Success retro punch.
Stickles, ribbon, buttons and string from stash.
I'm also entering some challenges :-
Papertake Weekly :- 3,2,1 - 3 flowers, 2 DP and 1 ribbon.
Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog :- Christmas in August.
A Spoon Full of Sugar :- 3 flowers, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon.
Thanks to everyone who joined us last week. It was lovely to see all your "Star"cards. I hope you can join us this week andmake a start to your Christmas cards at the same time.
Enjoy your weekend, especially if you have an extra day because of the Bank Holiday. Needless to say we don't have a day off up here in Aberdeenshire but I'm looking forward to next Monday as we have a local holiday then.

Edited to add :- guess who messed up the scheduled post?
