Okay I give in- Christmas in July it is !

Holly -Ann missed her last week at nursery because of the mumps-but with some new cream they dried up really quickly,and her nursery teacher told Tasha to bring her for a couple of hours on the last day to meet her new teacher and children as she goes into chool reception after summer.Well after waiting for 10mins at lunchtime Tasha asked the reception where she was ---only to be told she was staying hot dinners in the hall with the rest of the class,she only told the teacher her Mum had forgotten her packed lunch so the teacher paid for her to have a hot dinner,as her Mum walked past the hall she looked up and waved -then carried on eating!!!so ended up staying all day.
Last week I resisted all the Christmas in July challenges but this week almost every challenge is this --soooo I gave in and made one(and another male card) hopefully a CAS one so feel free to comment-good or bad.
I have used "In the Cold"my favourite winter image from Robyns Fetishcoloured with promarkers,soft snow,and glamour dust on papers -loose in stash and finally chalked some clouds-finished.
