Challenge 45 - Christmas in August

Howdy there peeps! Well what a week its been! What with fairly appalling weather, manically busy and then my baby girl Harry being hospital all week! Well I've not known if I was coming or going. The coming and going being the 120 mile round trips to the vets mainly. Yes folks that's right 1 2 0 miles! Why I can hear some of you say, well with Harry being a parrot and regular vets know nothing about them. Only the best for my girl.. Hence the trip. She's back home now and is getting better.

So thanks to all you stars who came to play last week - gee I'm so funny! Humorous and not odd.... well not too odd ;)) Just a bit odd.... but hey what's a bit of oddness between friends? Anyway I cranked up the Random Picky Thing and he picked Kerstin. Email me your details please include the challenge number in the detail and I'll sort your prize out.

So what's this weeks challenge I hear you cry.... louder I can't hear you! Well the weather here has turned decidedly chilly and they reckon snow is due in September! Have we moved into the Arctic Circle or what?? So I thought we'd better start thinking of Christmas. Now I sell a fair few cards and they're done and dusted mostly. However most of the ones I send are VERY last minute the glue is only just dry on them. I know that will be a surprise to everyone.... OK perhaps not to those who know me ;))

Anyway enough of my rambling... unless you want more? I can do a few thousand words easy... OK enough. This week we're sponsored by a lovely stamp company called Cupids Clear Stamps. Now these are really really nice, they are just ace! So the lucky winner will receive a set of stamps.

So here's the inspiration from the Gorjussettes.

So inspired? Because I think these are just GERT LUSH ME BABBER!!! Now you may think I'm nuts.... but I was introduced to that saying earlier in the year by a retreat pal ;)) I think its a wonderful saying, makes me smile when I say it.

OK I know I'm rambling. Entry via Mr Linky please, link to your actual entry and not your whole blog. New work only and nothing back dated, please be fair to those who play properly ;))
