Christmas cards in July?

It has been throwing it down here- got unbelievably soaked but it made me thankful for a dry house, dry clothes, a car and dry craft things (ok- so the ink is wet!). When it rains- what else should you be doing? Here’s this afternoons offering.. and yes I really love green at the moment!

Everyone seems to be doing Christmas in July! We had the real Mcoy (well sort of), last week when one of my kids had chickenpox. We had a tree out, mini presents, Christmas card making (of course!), watched Miracle on 34th Street and had a full Christmas dinner! It ranks as one of the more memorable days so far! Last night I was picking my starter kit for Stampin’Up !  Kid in a candy store just didnt even get close!! You pay £139  and get over £240 of products! You have got to see the stamps and inks, cardstock, papers, and there is a mighty fine scalloped edged punch I have my eye on. check it out…

In the meanwhile if you feel inspired- I can’t help you (YET!) but go to and she can get you a catalogue, goodies or great advice..oh, and tell her I sent you!!
