 I have the heatwave to blame for my lack of blogging this past week - in fact a lack of everything really.  When I feel hot and uncomfortable just sitting still that is really too much for me so in fact I've achieved nothing beyond the bare essentials although I have read a couple of books.  Suffering from sleep deprivation as well as I guess are many others.  Anyway there is at least a little bit of breeze about this morning and I've actually managed to produce a card even if it has taken me much longer than normal.  This one is for my Christmas collection and has used up a few more of my snippets for the stamping and die cutting - no whole pieces of paper or card have been cut into this morning 😉

  5. Hi Val

    I agree .. .. this week has been too hot for anything other than "what you have really got to do".

    I spent quite a bit of mine under the shade of the outdoor umbrella colouring. Very enjoyable!

    Love your Christmas card. Great layout and cute little bird stamps.

    I think we are in for a cooler time of it this week.

    Love Jules xx
