1st Snowball of Winter

Good evening all.

No - I haven't gone completely gaga although the title might suggest so. And I do know that we are in the middle of June but half the year has already gone and if I don't get started soon I will end up as every year - short on cards to give friends and family for christmas.

Today Phoebe and I took the train to Belper. Had a lovely day shopping and eating lunch and once we got home we spent some time doing a little home-work. She is working on the "proper saying" of the alphabet and not just phonics. I am pretty sure it's all a bit confusing for her. And yes, the Pokemon bug is still in the house - she has her little heart set on a soft Pikachu toy so it's a browse on ebay for me lol.



As I mentioned I have a christmas card for you today. The challenge at SCACD is Anything goes and we all love those. So I thought I might get started on this years cards using this gorgeous stamp designed by the super talented Elisabeth Bell. Isn't she just super. I have kept the design simple as I send a lot of cards to family in Denmark and if I attach too much embellishment the postal cost is huge.
