Mid month reminder

Here I am back with a mid month reminder
for you all to get those Christmas makes into 

I am sorry that I am late getting this out but life hasn't been easy
I know you have heard that before but life
is throwing me bricks at the moment.
I have a really bad dose of Sinus and am on my second 
script of antibiotics and my youngest daughter has 
just had major surgery on her neck and will be in a neck brace 
for at least 13 weeks and not able to drive.
Ah well when you are down the only way is up and tomorrow is another day.
On to better things
My Card.

The background is white card and I sponged around the edges with
DI Mown lawn then stamped the holly with the same ink
and I am really happy with it.
The gold ribbon was 2 small pieces from my stash that I could use
up as they were going behind the die cut.
Always good when you can use up scraps.
Finished it off with a fussy cut Tilda and some sticker/peel offs also from my stash.

I repeated the sponging and stamping on the inside of the card and 
also on the envelope but forgot to take a photo of that.

Thanks for dropping in

Sun Bonnet

July 1st and look what  I have blooming in the garden.

No not the weeds....... the daffodil it doesn't seem to know 
we have another 8 weeks of winter yet.  Still a joy to see.

Also time to invite you to join us at 

As usual our sponsor is Bugaboo stamps and I have chosen
She has been coloured with Faber Castell pencils
and is very pastel but I smooched the candy cane added
stickles and 3D medium and some dots of perfect pearls to give her some bling.

Must say I do enjoy looking at all the cards you are making and visiting 
your personal blogs.  
Now is the time to start making those cards
to avoid the rush in October, November.
