Hello Everyone..

Today over here in New Zealand it is AUGUST the 1st..eek..who stole July?

The good news though, it is time for some new challenges and projects and second up is my CCAYR project..


and our theme is...CHRISTMAS TREE..

I have this silhouette die and just had to use it..although I cut the cat off and stuck it back on and it went crooked...he is walking up the snow

The sky was done with Oxide inks, a tree die added behind the hill and the sun is setting, these folk are only just going to make it home before dark..

The tiny snowflakes are nail art embellishments...

So there we go, get out those Christmas tree dies and stamps and come join in our challenge..

Thanks so much for stopping by..


PS..only 1 more sleep and it will be Friday my day off..AND..I have the weekend off too..whoo hoo..

A lovely silhouette scene with a good oldfashioned Christmas vibe, I love cards like this. So nice with the golden sentiment.

This is such a pretty scene Chrissy, so perfect for Christmas. Of course in your neck of the woods, you'd be in real trouble with that much snow at Christmastime :-) Miss my summer Christmases spent at the beach :-) Love the silhouette die you used and you're right, that kitty does have a bank of snow to climb :-)
Have a great day.
Big hugs,

I'm simply refusing to believe it's August... there's clearly been a mistake somewhere along the way. As always I'm in awe of anyone who can get their Christmas mojo going in midsummer (though I suppose it's not for you!)... and this card is a real wintry treat. I do love a good silhouette and these are really good.
