Christmas in Spring


What a glorious sunny day again here in Essex. The birds are certainly singing their little hearts out today and the woodpecker is bashing holes in the apple tree like there's no tomorrow.The blue tits,long tailed tits, great tits, blackbirds, robins and wood pigeons are all busy looking for nesting sites so we must remember not to tidy the garden too well. We also had the ring necked parakeets visit us again today.
So not exactly the time of year to be thinking about Christimas is it? but that is the challenge at Secret Crafter this week.
This is a card I made last Christmas for two football fans but didn't get a chance to show.

This is also for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge which is make a square card
Stamping Vacation Nestabilites challenge well I used my circle nesties.
CES Challenge blog - Challenge 29 Die cut crazy.

Well off to make a start on Sunday lunch or should that be dinner and make the most of the sunshine and that extra hour of daylight.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
