It's a Blue Christmas at Winter Wonderland

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are all well and not suffering too much in this heat we are experiencing in the UK at the moment.
I love it - hoping it lasts for the next 3 weeks before we head off to sunny Spain for a couple of weeks - but I don't suppose it will!!!

So today Jack breaks up from school for the summer holidays - yesterday he said he had the best day ever at school - his house won the house championship for the year and he was picked as the representative of his house to accept the trophy in a whole school assembly - can't wait to see the photos :o)
Then his house all had a special fun activity afternoon - the PE staff constructed a water slide on the playing field - going down a massive hill - they had a BBQ - played football - had water balloons and sponges - generally all round perfect fun and activities for the warm weather.

So onto my DT share for today which given the weather we are having seems rather strange - but as it's for


that explains it all lol!!!!

Hiya Debbs.
My Daughter accepted the Trophy for her House when she left her school (back in 2001) I remember she was sooo excited.
Hope it stays nice for you and you can build your Tan for your holls.
I wear Garnier stuff to keep my Tan, it's really good Body Summer it's called and it's on offer on the Boots website at the mo. Everyone says my tan looks good and Natural too!

Beautiful blue Christmas card (my favourite colour for C cards)
Adore that image and I must get me that curved border, have a great Weekend.
