Dutch Dare Challenge #57: Christmas in August

Goodmorning everyone,
it's been a very busy week sofar. Last week of the vacation and there were a lot of things we still had to do. Monday I took the girls to a playground not far from our home. We have plenty of playgrounds next to our house, but none of them have swings. Tuesday we spend all day at the flea market selling old toys. So funny, we spend all day selling old toys and at the end of the flea market we ended up in the toy store buying new toys of the money we've earned.
Yesterday we cleaned up the girls bedroom and playroom (there are stilll enough toys in it to call it a toystore) and today we have to make preparations for Ruby's birthdayparty. Her birthday isn't untill August 22nd but she's celebrating it with her friends tommorrow.

Because we've been so very busy there wasn't much time for crafting and I had to make my card for the DDCC this morning.

This weeks challenge on the Dutch Dare Cards Challenge:


I already saw other challengeblogs doing this challenge, so if you participate in all of them you should have a nice number of christmas cards ready by December.

Here's what I came up with.

Don't forget to join us tonight at another Scrap Online over at Paper Craft Planet. We will be making a card online. There's a discussion posted with the supplies you'll be needing and starting 7.30 PM -London Time- I will help you create a card, by posting pictures of every step.

Thanks for stopping by today,
xoxo Karin
