Hello? Anyone out there? LOL...boy it's quiet in blogland at the moment...I forgot how quiet the summer months get. At least there were over 160 of you still about who entered our Christmas in July Challenge lol. Thank you to all of you and apologies if you didn't receive a comment from one of the Ladybugs. We've all been super busy or on holidays but we try and leave comments when and we hope it won't stop you entering this months Summer Fun Challenge. Before I show you my card I want to remind you to check the Challenge Blog to see if you were a winner of either:

Really??? Am I really giving all that away lol?? You've got 2 weeks to claim your prizes but once you do you've got plenty of time to spend it :-D

Ok onto this months challenge...yup, you've got another month to be creative and enter our Summer Fun Challenge. Only rules for this one are it's got to be fun and it's got to be summer themed!

Here's my'd better get your sunglasses out lol....

When I checked the theme on the DT blog I instantly knew which image I wanted to use and it wasn't a digi ;-D I feel like I haven't stamped in ages and it was great to get the cling and ink pad out. I stamped Jack and the Worm  and colored him with my Copics before cutting him out with my circle Nestie and sponging clouds to create a sky.

An easel card was the order of the day...I haven't made one of these in ages...they're so much fun :-D

I used Sentimental Numbers for the numerical sentiment adding Glossy Accents to the 8 and you can just about see it on the shovel too.

There's no better time to get Jack and the Worm and Sentimental Numbers than now as the summer stamp sale continue with ALL cling stamps at 1/2 price! Dare I say you could start your Christmas shopping :-O

Steven arrives home today from Spain with his girlfriend for a few days as it's her 21st (note to self, start card now!) on Friday. I haven't seen him since June 28th and I'm sure he's grown in all the sunshine..last count he was 6' 6 1/4" so maybe he hasn't lol.

I've got my Pampered Chef training tonight...I am really looking forward to it though nervous for my show on Monday. I know I'll know everyone there and I'm pretty good at the chat and not a bad cook (haven't managed to poison anyone...yet lol) but this is a whole new ballgame for me. Wish me 
luck :-D

I think that's it from me today. Hope you're enjoying the Olympics as much as I am...go Canada...go Team GB lol!!!

Catch ya later x
