Christmas in July

Good Morning Peeps,

Hope you are all having a good week.

Our eldest son called round on Wednesday and came into the house, it was quite strange really as he was the first person to have been inside the house for four months, we enjoyed a nice comfy chat for an hour or so, made a change from having to sit outside.

Time for a new challenge at My Time to Craft where for the next two weeks our challenge is:

Christmas in July


Quite a simple design using some embossed card for the background, the Happy Christmas die is by Sue Wilson, and the trees are cut out of green glitter paper with a Sweet Dixie bunting die which I thought made cute trees turned upside down and added a little tree trunk to each one.

Well it looks like it is set to be another beautiful day after a couple of cloudy ones.  I do hope you are all well and keeping busy, my biggest problem at the moment is remembering what day it is as every one seems the same.

Good Morning Peeps,

It’s been a bit cooler and cloudy for the last few days so no reading outside, just walks around the village, but we did have a socially distanced street party last Friday all eight houses in our close decorated the houses with home made bunting and flags and all sat in their front gardens with their picnics.  We were able to have chats (or shouts), we had music and everyone had a good time, well as good as could be had within the restrictions.

Funky Flowers

Good Morning Peeps,

Happy New Year, hope you all had a lovely Christmas.  We had an enjoyable time with the family and a nice rest.

I have my first card of the year for you today and it’s for our challenge at My Time to Craft where our theme for the next two weeks is:

New Stash



For my card I used some new stamps from Polkadoodles and did some of the colouring with some new Promarkers Brush pens which I got as a Christmas present, I also used Copics for my colouring. The sentiment is a JOFY stamp that I have had for ages but I really love the words.  Sorry about the quality of the photo but the days have been so gloomy it’s hard to get a good pic.

Hope to see you joining in our challenge and showing off your new stash.

Have a good weekend.
