Xmas in July - Tilda

Good afternoon Friends, Well I managed to do a little crafting after my Grandson's were asleep last night, and Grandad has taken them to the park for an hour to give me a wee break so I can prepare dinner, It's been wonderful having them, they are such fun to be around but in future I think a 1 night sleepover will suffice. lol.

Anyway here is one of the cards I made last night after they were sound asleep. I'll try and upload the other one later when they are tucked up for the night.

I've made this specifically for a few challenges, the theme in all of them is Christmas in July. So without further ado here are the challenges in no particular order.

1. Magical Crafts Challenge: Sadly this will be the last challenge as the blog is closing down after this challenge has completed. I will be sorry to see you go girls, I always enjoyed your challenges but wish you all the best for your future ventures. The theme is Christmas in July.

2. Paper Cutz Challenge: Also have the theme Christmas in July, this is a new challenge blog for me but I look forward to entering future challenges when time permits.

3. Ooh la la Challenge: Has a theme of Christmas in July too this week.

4. The Shabby Tea Room Challenge:
Another new challenge blog for me and I just love the name, they have a theme of Christmas in July and I look forward to more of their challenges.

Thanks for popping in to visit, I had better go now and finish off Dinner for the boys.
Hope to see you all later.
