Hi everyone - yes it's me again with another Christmas card - this one is for the Crafty Calendar DT and, as you may have guessed, our theme this month is 'Christmas in July'. Absolutely no problem for moi 'cos they are my favourite cards to make!!
I used an image from Mo Manning which I bought some time ago but have never used. She is such a cutie trying to catch the snowflakes on her tongue. Of course I had to use a few die cuts on here as well - it would have been rude not to - ;o)
Our prize this time is a Christmas Goody Bag
Let's see your creations over on the Challenge blog - we'd love you to become a follower as well but it's not an obligation - just join in and post your cards for us to see.
We are also looking for a couple more DT members - all you have to do is put the initials DT after your name when you enter your card onto our blog. We don't have many rules as a DT member, the main important ones are that you need to make one card per month and also comment on the number/s you are given. Simples!

Today is not as hot as yesterday so I'm a very happy bunny - the cats seem happier as well! Donny has been wandering into my craft room and flopping down on the floor with a huge - and I mean huuuuuge - sigh! He then gets up and winds himself around my legs until I get the brush out!! This is one weird cat, if either of us puts our hand down towards his head he flinches then claws come out and he thwacks us! If I put a PINK brush down towards his head he bumps into it and I have to then groom him - 10 minutes later (or longer if he feels like it) he falls over onto the floor and nods off. Half an hour later he's 'asking' me (same tactics as before) for another groom. I'm sure I've removed enough fur to stuff an old settee! Must admit he looks a lot less fluffy now and much cooler! I just need to sort out his flatulence problem and he'll be even more gorgeous - just like his missus, Blossom.
That's me sorted, I hope you will enter our challenge this month and thank you for checking out my blog. I'm just off to do some commenting before I start my next card.
Big hugs to you all and thank you for your comments. Take great care and keep cool!
