Little Red Wagon #196 - Christmas in July!

Hi there.

I'm running a little behind with today's post (as is the norm!)......should have appeared yesterday, but things were a little busy and time got the better of me.

The usual joys of cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, looking at more fluffy bundles of fur (the puppy variety) and generally entertaining the kiddo's..........entertaining resulted in the form of "Let's detox and vacuum the couch and clean every other surface in the family room!".

Much fun had by all!!

Anyhow, yesterday over at Little Red Wagon......




........our hostess, Rosanne wanted to see a little Christmas spirit.......just about snook that one in on the last day of July for a "Christmas in July" challenge.

I'd coloured a Christmas image quite a while ago - probably one of those from last Christmas that never actually made it to a card, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to dig it out and be ahead of the game for this years celebrations.

Winter Joy.


Changed things up a little and went with a simple Easel card.


Haven't made one of these in a looooong time!


The digi is from Pollycraft and coloured with Copic's.


Papers are from Authentique.

Hopefully you might get a chance to join along with this weeks challenge over on the blog.

Also check out what the rest of the girlfriends came up with, if you need a little festive inspiration!

Have a great day.

I'm off to get things rolling with the "Let's see who can clean a bathroom the fastest" game.

The joys of summer vacation!

Take care and I'll see you soon,
Jayne.x.
