Christmas Door

 Good Morning Peeps,

I hope everyone is having a good week.  Change in the weather here today after a sunny week it’s now very grey and raining and the temperature has dropped considerably, I think summer is over.

The Image is a LOTV (pre-coloured topper), background paper by Polkadoodles, sentiment and glamour dust.

 Good Morning Peeps,

I do hope you have all had a good week, we have had a week full of mixed emotions, on Tuesday our eldest granddaughter Zoe was 21 very happy occasion, but so sad no hugs, no party, no celebrations, no family gathering just each of us in turn calling round to wish her happy birthday.  On Thursday Abbie left for her first year at Manchester  University and on Saturday Zoe and Jude are off to University, Zoe to her third year at Nottingham and Jude first year at Sheffield.  It is just going to be so quiet around here.

Now back to today where have a new challenge starting at MyTime to Craft with the theme of:

Inspired by Harry Potter

Not being a Harry Potter fan don't know much about the books or films but managed to find this old small image from Red Hot Bed so I made an ATC with it.

Background paper from Honey Bee Stamps, old stamp sentiment (can't remember make) some die cut stars.

Please take a look at the Challenge blog to see some great inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a good day!
