Moving Along With Christmas

Good Morning to my lovely blogging friends, I don't know about you, but where I live we have had such a mix of weather this week!
I have to say I'm very sorry, I've been a dreadful blogger this past week. I've had a manic week at work and not got around to visiting anyone, I will try harder this week.

Thursday again means it challenge time again over at
Thank you to everyone who entered Lisa's challenge last week, don't forget to visit the main blog to see if you were the lucky winner or one of the top 3

This week it's Shell who is hosting, and she has chosen
 'Christmas In July'
Just the kick up the backside I needed to start my Christmas cards!
We are sponsored this week by
and they are offering the winner this fabulous prize
Some of us were given images to use and I chose this cuddly little snowman. The papers are DCWV and the snowflakes were die cut from Sizzlets and dipped in Twinklets Diamond Dust. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
Don't forget to visit MAWTT to check out what the lovely DT have made using Stitchy's images and to get all the details of this weeks challenge

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie
