More Christmas in July.

Well it's not been July weather so why not get on with some Christmas cards? I love this mummy snowlady with her cute little baby don't you? I think I might make some more cards with this sweet image.

I used :-
Image :- Dillybeans Stamps.
Colouring :- Promarkers
Sentiment and card candi :- Craftwork Cards.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Snowflake :- Martha Stewart punch.
Embossing :- Cuttlebug and Craft Concepts.
Corner :- Whimsy.
Glamour Dust and ribbon. 

I'm entering the following challenges :-
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge :- Monochrome.
Crafting When We Can :- Monochrome.
Simon Says Stamp :- Anything Goes.
Charisma Cardz :- Monochrome.

I hope this fits the monochrome challenges but if not I'm happy for these challenges to delete my entry!

I've not achieved much today. I had to take the car for it's MOT today and then tax it so that ran away with a lot of my morning but at least it's done! It's been really nice today. Not completely sunny or hot but there has been sun and it's dry and warm so that's a bonus after all the rain we've had.

I'm off to see if I can get anything else done now before I need to walk the dogs and make tea. I'm off out tonight so as usual my day off has just vanished. I would so love to not have to work!! On the other hand my friend recently had a minor op and has been off work for 4 weeks. She thought she'd be off for a couple of days so she's pretty fed up now and will actually be glad to get back to work. So I suppose not working is fine as long as you're not off work due to ill health or recovering from an operation.

I'm quite looking forward to taking the dogs out now when it's nice. Makes a change from coming in with muddy boots and eight muddy paws!!

See you later if my internet connection is behaving. Sometimes it's not very good in the evening. In fact the last two evenings it's been so rubbish I could hardly get online at all!

  3. I figure reading your post Kat that the weathers still not very summery up your neck of the woods, fingers crossed it might make it's way up there.

    Gorgeous card, you can't beat a snowman for festive cheer.

    Have a good walk with the boys.
