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 ;))

Oh wow I think summer has well and truly disappeared! The last couple of mornings have had a ~gulps~ autumnal feel to them! I mean come on its August its SUPPOSED TO BE SUMMER!!! Shouldn't it be hot? Or are those just the summers of my childhood? We have had some awful rain and high winds too.... just the snow to come in September them.... which the forecasters say might well happen! Cripes best dig those sweaters out then. Oh and the snowshoes too. I can't wait.... Oh hang on I can wait! Keep the snow.

Challenge 43 - Aqua

Howdy there peeperoos! Oh my I think summer is definitely over! The weather here is just.... well .... awful sums it up perfectly I reckon. This morning had a hint of autumn in the air! I mean come on please a bit more summer!

I'm guessing lots of you lucky folks are on your holidays - I hope you've got some lovely sun. I fired up the RPT and he picked Hazel as last weeks winner of the Joanna Sheen voucher.

So this week our theme is fairly topical..... its AQUA! hehehe! At the moment its throwing it down with rain I love the irony of it.... aqua of course is water! So aqua it is. Now this can either be aqua coloured or you can have some aqua, water on your submissions. New work only please though. This week we kindly sponsored by the lovely Lili of the Valley They have got the most B E A U T I F U L stamps! They are so lovely and colour wonderfully! Oh there's a new release of stamps too ;))

As usual the Gorjussettes have some inspiration to share with you.


So pretty darn fabby huh? So we'd love to see your aqua interpretations too. remember the lucky winner gets a Lili of the Valley stamp.

Challenge 42 - sketch

Wow challenge 42 already! My where does the time go to? I wish I knew I'd try and sneak some back! I mean how can it be August already for goodness sakes?? You certainly wouldn't think it was judging on the weather. Today has been quite chilly. I wondered at people out and about in their coats. Once I'd gone outside myself I wished I had mine! Oh and it rained on St Swithins Day too....its been fairly constant since too. The only thing I can say about that is that now our grass is green instead of brown. On the minus side its growing and needs mowing!

Anyway enough of my moaning ;)) I'll have you asleep before you know it. That would be no good you'd miss the fabby cards the Gorjussettes have made for you. Thanks to all who played last week, some beautiful babies out there. The lucky winner picked by the RPT is Janice who entered by email. Send me your details please.

So this week is a sketch as its the beginning of the month and it also means we're sponsored by the lovely Joanna Sheen. The lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher for spends in Joanna's shop. I mean whats not to love? As they say you have to be in it to win it.

So here's the sketch

And here's the inspiration by the Gorjussettes

So aren't they just super? ~applauds Gorjussttes~

We'd love to see what you can do with our sketch!
