Christmas in a heatwave

Morning Peeps, no Allsorts post today as the current challenge is running for two weeks with the chance to win a £15 WOWVOW voucher.  

It's Zachary and Faith's wedding tomorrow, the weather is set to be glorious and momentum and excitement is gathering. As mentioned, mobility remains as issue but had a visit (shock horror) from the GP this week and he has prescribed morphine patches to help with my pain, so I am hopeful this will ease movement somewhat.......after all I need to be agile enough to grab the next glass of bubbles to stave off dehydration. Will share photos in my next post on 18th.

So instead of Allsorts shares I have a couple using some  new Highlight Crafts Two Red Robins goodies. I have a discount voucher (BRENDA10) if you are tempted to treat yourself on their website......just add at checkout.

Also a heads up that the Crafting Live show at Peterborough promises to be a sell out with a bumper number of exhibitors, you can book now here.

The new A Frosted Eve USB launched on Create and Craft last evening and I have used one of the backing scenes from the USB along with other new dies from the A Frosted Eve collection. I adore the background scene with Santa, it comes in a landscape and portrait option.

To create the semi wreath I used A Festive Posey and of course a couple of Robins from the same collection. The sentiment is from one of my own sets released on Create and Craft last month and can be purchased from Stamp Addicts here. Further down a sneak peek of two more of my sets just released which will showcase on C&C in the next Stamp Addict show.

One more not shared on my blog as yet using more of the same collection along with Deer to My Heart, aren't they adorable little creatures.

My new sentiments and inspirational quotes, a few old favourites and some new ones as well, for whatever reason the photos are blurry but I promise the stamped images are clean and crisp.

And they go rather nicely with these which are new and now available from Stamp Addicts and will also feature in the same C&C programmes.
No samples made with them yet, but will share soon.

Enjoy the sunshine and keep cool.

Hello Brenda, what stunning cards. especially the one with the deer, beautifully designed, most certainly mantlepiece pleasers.
I hope the morphine patches do the trick and that you get some ease from your pain. Enjoy the wedding and will look forward to seeing you piccies, take care, Kate x

I miei migliori auguri a Zachary e Faith per il loro matrimonio! Scusa il ritardo nel commento! Spero che nonostante tutto tu sia riuscita a festeggiare questo importante evento e anche con le bollicine!!
Due cards straordinarie, adoro le dolci scene invernali, quella con i bellissimi fiori e i pettirossi, e quella con i cervi!! Davvero belle e anche rinfrescanti con questo caldo torrido! I tuoi sentiments sono molto belli, sono sicura che andranno molto bene!
Aspetto di vedere le foto del matrimonio! :)
Buon Ferragosto!! Abbracci!
