A Real Christmas in July

 Hello again…

Well today is the last day of the Christmas in July Challenge over at Bugaboo’s Catch the Bug blog, today’s Challenge is to use this week’s freebie Digi AND choose a recipe from a variety of nine different Present boxes. I have chosen to use box nine the last one on the end, Ribbon, Image and Stitching.

On the weather front yesterday we awoke to a massive dump of snow for the area I live in making our neighbourhood in to a true Winter Wonderland. 

Friends in other towns had over 30cm of snow but we got a little less around 20cm over everything, but it never lasts long and most had melted before the end of the day leaving little patches here and there in the deep shady areas in our yard. I simply have to share:-)
