Christmas in July

Morning Peeps,

Hope you all had a fab weekend.  I had to go shopping to Tesco on a Saturday afternoon, all I can say is never again!  I hate shopping at the best of times. Yesterday me and OH went out on our bikes, a gentle 6 mile ride..... NOT.  Hubby's idea of short cuts again, up steep hills, sharp left and up a vertical rock hard mud  hill, so much so I nearly fell off me bike, well actually nearly a couple of times.  We were going up a one way street so had to go on the path and got stuck behind two people so I came to an abrupt stop and as I can't quite touch the ground with my feet I nearly fell into the road, lol.  Anyways, 355 calories burnt off so it had its plus points.

Anyways, are you guys having problems with Blogger, I can't leave comments, sometimes my page is all over the place. Even having difficult writing this post with the text all across the icons at the top. I usually swtich browser but it seems to be a problem on both that I use. Grrrrrr.

Today's card is made using All Wrapped Up available HERE.

  6. Amazing card Tracy, love that tree !!! Your colouring is perfect but all I need to know now is ..... what did you spend the 355 calories on ?!?!?! lol lol

  7. That tree is something, especially with the texture of those branches plus the snow - & I love the way you've used Candi for the baubles together with those brads(?) in the corners. Her green eyes are so pretty too & you've really used the patterned paper to its full advantage with that Santa on it.
