Christmas Past

Phew... what a scorcher!!! I don't know about you but I have suffered so bad this week in all the heat. It's been a mad week altogether! My office is like a greenhouse and no matter what I did, I just couldn't get any cool air into it at all. My poor little dog has really not enjoyed it. I came home on Wednesday to find huge clumps of fur all over the carpet and he was there tugging away at it in a desperate attempt to stop itching - it must have been killing him! Thankfully our house is very cool in the summer (freezing in the winter tho'!!!) so at least it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I managed to get their hair cut though and it seems to have helped a lot. Hardly the weather to be thinking about Christmas, but I still managed to get my card done for this week's Winter Wonderland theme which is Christmas Past. This Thomas Kinkade stamp was perfect for me because (although I'm not Victorian, despite what my kids may tell you!!) the scene reminds me so much of what Christmas was like when I was a child. It was quite a difficult image to paint though - I certainly don't have TK's talent for capturing light (Lord, I love that man's paintings!!), but nevertheless, it was great fun (if not time-consuming) to do.

Well that's my lot for today - if you find yourself with an hour to spare, why don't you put something together for the Winter Wonderland theme this week and you could find yourself being the lucky owner of these fab stamps too!!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great week!! :o) xx
