Summer Holidays and Christmas Cards?

Good Morning!
I'm back again...
Summer Holidays have kept me away from my laptop, however, crafting has been taking place in between various activities...
Daughters birthday, trip to Egypt and a Wedding!

Just a couple of holiday phots for you...

 Resort pool...

Snorkelling in the Red Sea...

Desert Dune Buggy!

My youngest swimming with the Dolpins!

It's all about Christmas now to most cardmakers especially if you are on a DT for a wonderful stamp company called Wild Rose Studio.

So much gorgeousness popping through my door that its impossible not to be inspired to start the Christmas cards even if it's hot and sunny outside.

Too much cuteness!
Basically everything is from Wild Rose Studio...
Stamp, papers and dies and I really encourage you to look at the new christmas dies.
They arrived literally the day I went on my hols so I haven't managed to use them yet but the snowflakes and frames are beautiful.

Coloured with promarkers first and then with my Spectrum Noir pencils...

Organza bow and the ivory with a sparkle and pearl flower.
This postage stamp sentiment is from a set and I coloured it in which I've never done before.
Love how it looks!

Obviously had to add glitter and jewels to the bouquet!

Winter Wonderland...Anything goes for Christmas
Let's Craft and Create...Ribbon or Twine

So were heading towards the last week and wow how quick has that gone?
As usual I will be cramming everything shoes shopping and hopefully another beach walk.

We have movie and Pizza night tonight for 5 eleven year olds...
and then a 50th Garden party on Sunday!
Hope you all have a FAB weekend!
