Christmas In August!

Hi folks, it's Friday again which means it's time for a new Challenge over at
This challenge is sponsored by 

This time our challenge is Anything Goes which means you have free reign to make whatever you want.  It doesn't have to be a card, some of the talented DT members have done a teapot, hat, and a pencil holder.  I stuck to doing a card as I thought it was about time I made a start on my Christmas Cards!  I know it's only the 1st of August today but believe will creep up on you lol. 

Had a hectic weekend last weekend, was in Scarborough to see Boyzone (swoon!) and then on Sunday it was Veterans day at our local park.  We had an amazing day, watching battle re-enactments, listening to a band and watching flypasts by some WW2 Planes.  Having a quiet one this weekend so hopefully can recharge my batteries.  We're going to be busy shredding branches but I'm also hoping to make some time for card making.  Hope you all have a great weekend! x

This is my card - it made me think of one of the heartwarming Christmas Movies that are always on Sky nearer Christmas - The Christmas Gift.

Recipe : Backing Card - The Craft Outlet Spalding
DP's - Nitwit Collections - Still Joyful Too
Image - LOTV - Christmas Bears - Presents - Coloured With Promarkers.  Liquid Pearls used to look like snow.
