Across the Miles

Good Morning all,

I hope you are all having a good weekend.  Here, the weekend is over but we had a nice long weekend (Thurs, Fri and Sat) and we had some fun.  Thursday was not a good day for Daddy! We went to a huge park/beach and had a BBQ (hubby doesnt like BBQ's) then little man decided to go for a swim in the sea fully clothed so Daddy joined him and forgot his new mobile was in his pocket! It's a gonner! Oops, that was an expensive swim!   All week we promised 'little man' a trip to a waterpark so that's what we did yesterday.  I daren't go on any rides ( i just take the photos) but it was fun.  Back to work/routine/crafting/housework today.

So, onto today's challenge at One Stitch at a Time.

The theme this week is easy.......... Christmas - Use a Digi.   I hope you will all join in.  The more the merrier.

The sponsor is the fabulous..... Joanna Sheen

I was delighted to be given this fantastic digi to use on my project.  It was fab to colour and i thought i would opt for an very non traditional Christmas card.  Very unusual for me, so i would love to know your thoughts.  The papers are by K&Company. The image is called 'Muse 3' by Ike. You can view it here.

If you pop on over to the One Stitch at a Time blog you will see the beautiful inspiration from my fellow DT sisters.

Divas By Design Challenge 61 - Anything goes
