Evening All

Whoosh ... what a scorcher it is today!  I've had to dig out my industrial strength fan when I got home from work as the office was so humid I felt like I was roasting on a spit but at least the sunshine makes everyone happy and in the holiday spirit.

So talking of holidays I can't believe I have made my first Christmas card ... YES in July!  I know there are several Christmas challenges but I tend to ignore them until December is a little nearer.  BUT last week I purchased some beautiful digi images from Pink Petticoat and couldn't resist using them.  Fortunately there are two challenges this week where the theme is 'Christmas in July' so here goes.  I've used this weeks sketch from Freshly Made Sketches too although when I've checked their website I've missed the challenge but I like the sketch anyway.

See you all Soon

Card Recipe:

Image: Pink Petticoat - Merry Christmas Sweetie
Papers: Freebie from Quick Cards Made Easy
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Pearls from the Hobby House
Ribbon from my stash
Mini Mosaic embossing folder
Coloured with Promarkers
and last but not least a sprinkling of glamour dust on the icing ... yummy!
