Christmas in July.....

Hi there everyone.
We are almost fully settled in to the new house. There have been some hiccups along the way which have prevented me from getting it all done quicker but we are slowly getting there. Thank goodness we've had the school holidays to make things easier. It is back to school for Miss Molly tomorrow & she is very excited. Her new uniforms are ready & her bag is packed.

My son had a pretty momentus event happen today. He got his DRIVER'S LICENCE!!!
He is very proud & can't wait to get his first car.

Rosie the dog & Bella the cat have both settled in well. Rosie has grown heaps & her legs are so long. She's rather naughty though at times & suffers terrible separation anxiety when we go out.
Hopefully she will outgrow it, fingers crossed.

I decided that I needed a bit of a push to get back into making cards. Luckily Ideal Papercraft were just starting their Christmas in July Card Challenge.
Each week a new challenge is set & you have a week to upload your card.

The first week's challenge was to have a collection of at least 3 similar items on your card.
This is my card







I used all Making Memories products on this.

The second week's criteria was to feature a star or something to do with stars.
The card I made uses Scenic Route papers, a MME journalling card & a Cosmo cricket chip star.







It's good to have the ol' creative juices flowing again & a bonus to be getting some Christmas cards tucked away because the way this year is flying by it's going to be that time of the year before I know it.

Thanks for popping by to catch up.
Hopefully I will be blogging a bit more regularly now :)

Hi Jewls, so wonderful to see you creating again, love these christmas cards, nice and simple yet classy with the papers you used.

Glad you are all settling into the new house, new life, new school and congrats to your son on his DL.

So glad Rosie and Bella have adjusted.
