Dress Up Chloe

Dress Up Chloe (2)

Morning All. I know I shouldn’t complain but it’s still so hot. It’s been a little thundery here and I‘m almost wishing for a storm so it cools off a little.

Anyhoo, We have a new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge today and it is my time to pick the theme. Well it’s 4th July so as it’s Independence Day across the pond I thought I would go with the theme of ‘Red, White and Blue’. I have used Dress Up Chloe and made a cute little birthday card:

Night All. I’m very late popping in to share today’s card. It’s been a very long, busy and super hot week and I think my brain may have taken a little holiday…..I thought I had scheduled this post! Well how wrong could I be?

Anyhoo, enough waffle it’s Fabulous Friday again over at Tiddly Inks and I’m sharing a card made using the fabulous My Super Boy:

Beach Hut

Beach Hut (5)

Morning All.

Hope you are all enjoying the good weather. It was hard work in the garden yesterday in the heat but I can relax a little now as my new shed and greenhouse are both built. Although I still need to sort all the gardening equipment and  put up hooks and shelves in the new shed to house it all.

Anyhoo enough waffle! Can you believe it’s July already? Me neither but it does mean it’s time for a new digi stamp challenge over on the Little Claire Blog. This month our theme is ‘Holidays’:

Evening All. I’ve had a really busy day as I’ve been out in the garden and whoop whoop my greenhouse is now up and glazed, but boy was it hot and even now it doesn’t seem to be cooling down much.
