Hi there blog friends - it's time for a mid month reminder for the Christmas Cards All Year Round Challenge where our theme is to use 'Bright Summery Colours'.  As always I've mixed mine up a bit and the snowman is dressed in bright colours and the backing papers are pastel summer colours - well who said it wasn't weird up here on Planet Susie eh??


7" x 7" White card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Image - 'Winter Wonderland'  b&w designs by Daisy Mae Draws at Hobby Art
Papers - 'Stocking Fillers' 8 x 8 First Edition
Papers - 'Festive Trimmings' 8 x 8 LOTV 
Corner Punch (unknown maker)
Memory Box - Snowflake Corner die
Pearls from stash
Stardust Stickles
Scrap of Gold card for mat

Now for the details of the prizes on offer this month

Prize No1 is
Prize: 2 digis (3 if you've used a Stamping Boutique digi)

Prize No2 is
Gingham Tape
October Afternoon Chip Alphabet
'Your Next Stamp'- Monty the Snake (unmounted rubber stamp)

 Definitely good prizes!!!  We want to see your entries, you can do any paper project as long as it's Christmas and fits the theme so come on get cracking - it's not that long until the big day - and it's being so cheerful that keeps me going!  Plus the fact that I really do love making Christmas cards - mojo is never really too far away when it comes to these.

Oh well must be off, as I told my blog friend Christine (Harrop) Blossom is looking well after her surgery to remove an air rifle pellet from her side but Biscuit seems to have been rather more stressed with his stay in the cattery and his over-grooming and skin condition have flared up again so I have to keep up with medication for him. 

Oh and he's been up to his cheeky habits again - our neighbours recently moved (so Milo doesn't pop in for her snacks now!) but the new neighbours have Billy, a rescue ex-racing Greyhound, who might be a tad dangerous for felines to be around - I wish someone would tell Biscuit that though, 'cos he was found in their kitchen the other day having a feed  - courtesy of Billy!!!  I was mortified - not quite as mortified as when Catherine (who's just moved) told me that one day she'd just come out of the shower when she came face to face with Biscuit walking up the stairs having a little perv!!!

Lots of big hugs to you all and take care - enjoy the sunshine.

Love  Sue xxx
