Christmas in June at My Time to Craft

Good Morning All

Hope you are having a good Saturday, it's been a good week this week, I have been enjoying watching some of the tennis mainly Andy Murray.  I have been to Sports Day at Heidi and Lauren's school, great time of year for watching the summer activities at the schools.  Granddaughter Jude became a teenager this week so spent time with her on her birthday,  now a quiet weekend planned.

Well we have a new challenge for you over at My Time to Craft and for this fortnight it is:

* * * Christmas in June * * *

This cute image is by Bugaboo and I coloured with Copics, the papers are from my stash and I added glamour dust, a sentiment, charm and ribbon.

Do pop over to the challenge blog and have a look at the great cards by my fellow DT members and maybe join in and get a head start on your Christmas cards.
