Gorjuss Snowman!

Hi All, boy is it hot here, 26 degrees in the afternoon, and not that much cooler now in the evening, how is it where you are?  I just hope it keeps up as I think the children start their school holidays next week.

I've been awfully lazy around the house, just too hot to pull the vacuum out and too sunny to wash windows guess it will just have to wait.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last card and a Big Welcome to Lisa from Mermaid Crafts, lovely to have you here and I hope you pop in when you can.

As I'm typing this up Brazil are playing and Alistair is jumping up and down on the sofa, men and their football!!, every  time he shouts and jumps, so does poor Teallach, poor cat is stressed with it all.  I think there is another  couple of weeks of it to go.

Anyway, enough of this, I've got a little card for the Rudolph Challenge over at Scrappy Mo's blog,
Now I just love this little Gorjuss guy, but he looks awfully sad I think. I've given him  a vintage looks with his colours. LOTV papers and Zig water colour pens.

It's going to be a sticky night, so I don't expect to sleep I do not anyway, still mustn't complain, I'll say cheerio for now and see you soon,

I would like to enter my card into

Fun Christmas card!

Anne said...

Love this Kate, that poor snowman does look sad doesn't he!
I'm so thankful that I don't have to go to work in this heat, I've been enjoying the garden but like you haven't done much else, far too hot to be vacuuming!
Just watching the England game as I type this, I'm not much of a football fan but do like to watch the big games with Keith and support our national team. I hope they do well this time - it's long overdue and I do like Gareth Southgate

Oh I think he looks sad in this hot weather because he is worried he is going to melt and disappear! Another gorgeous Christmas card Kate, it is hot here too, I like the sunny days, but not the humidity. Have a good night xx

Maria Illsley said...

A lovely design Kate. I like the papers you have used. I love the hot weather but don't see it during the day as I'm at work at least it will be nice for the weekend and I will be able to enjoy it xxx

brenda said...

Yep, a good couple of weeks still to go Kate and I just hope they are more exciting that Englad last night.

I really like your choice of earthy colours for your Christmas card and that snowman is such fun.
