TPC #80 Christmas in August

Oooh what glorious sunshine we've woken up to here in East Yorkshire. I'm sooooo excited today!  The boring bit is picking my car up from the garage bout 1pm after it failed its MOT first time round - bummer!!  Once thats done and its all taxed I'm off to pick up Harley, my eight week old cocker spaniel and bring him home!!!  I can't wait, it'll be interesting to see how Murphy and Dylan take to him.  I brought a little blanket home for them with Harley's scent on a fortnight ago so they could get used to far Dylan growls it and walks away, won't have it anyway near him.......and Murphy takes great pleasure in taking it straight out in the garden, dumping it down at the bottom and leaving it there lol.

Today we have a fabby challenge for you over at Totally Papercrafts.  We want to see

Christmas in August

Just perfect for making a start with those Christmas card.......or if you're really organised........adding to an ever growing pile of them lol.

I used a really fun image from Karen's Doodles who are sponsoring us this week and offering THREE digi images to the lucky winner - whoooo hooooo.

Don't you just love Bigsby!!!!

This was a first for me as the papers are all DIGI - I am no longer a digi paper virgin rofl.  I'm quite chuffed with how it turned out and I think I've discovered a new addiction in the process lol.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges.......

Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Try it On Tuesday - Anything Goes
Papercrafting Journey - Anything Goes
Craft us Crazy - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by, we do hope you can join us over at TPC this week and can't wait to see what you create.

Just a little reminder that we have TWO challenges running over at Fussy and Fancy at the moment.  Firstly our usual fortnightly challenge can be found HERE but we also have a very special month long challenge with loads of sponsors to celebrate us hitting a massive 1000 followers!!!  You can check out that challenge and sponsor details HERE.

Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to get ready to go out now, the children think he's coming on Sunday - can't wait to see their faces when they see him today!!

Take care, have a fabulous weekend.
