Passion for Promarkers - Christmas in July...

Good morning, dear Blogger buddies and a Happy Tuesday to you all! Well, it seems that if my motivation to craft was rather low, it is now virtually non existant now that the Summer holidays have started! My time is spent clearing up after, feeding and trying to entertain a bored 12 year old! Plus it looks like Mother Nature is against us aswell and the weather has turned to it's usual British Summer default of grey skies and drizzle...the holidays are rather long when you're cooped up in a 3 bed semi!
But anyway, just to cheer you up, I'm here to share my DT card for this week's Passion for Promarkers challenge...yay! This time we have the lovely Hazel in the hostess chair and she has chosen a theme of 'Christmas in July'...Now I struggle to do Christmas cards at the best of times - I think because we start doing them in September for our workshops - plus I don't do Christmas until the 1st December! We are being sponsored by the fabulous A Day for Daisies and they're offering one lucky winner a $12.00 voucher to their store...
We were lucky enough to choose an image to play with, so I went with Little Cats Christmas...
...I pfaffed around with this card so much, trying to add different embellishments and promptly decided to take them all off again, as anything else detracted from the sweet little kitties! So my card ended up very CAS with just a bit of Glossy Accents on the fairy lights and dare I say it...a peel off sentiment!...
...I would've liked to do some doodling on my card (inspired by Shelly's amazing doodles!) but I'm not brave enough to just go for it yet and I can never remember to do it before sticking everything together!
I need to get my finger out and get some stock ready as I'm having a stall at the Meirioneth Show at Rhug on Wednesday 24th August!  I'm creating some pebble art pictures and bag/key charms using sea glass from the Cardigan Bay coast plus I need to bulk up my cards and try and think of some other crafty items to sell!  Wish me luck and if you have a bit of crafty motivation, can you please send some my way?!
Thanks for dropping by! Hugs,

A sweet image and I love the CAS look. When you mention Rhug my mouth waters for the fab organic bacon butties at the farm. Fond memories of our holidays in Wales. Elaine

Adorable. I love the long (wide) card design. It makes it stand out in the sea of A2 cards. Thank you for sharing with us at the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge. - Myrna DT
