It's the first Friday of the month so that means a new challenge has been set at the Crafty Calendar Challenge. The challenge for July is 'Summer Holidays'. So we would love to see your cards themed around summer and holidays - added option of yellow. Don't forget we are a monthly challenge so you have plenty of time to enter :o)
This card is on its way to a very brave little girl, Bella Tucker. On Easter Sunday Bella came down with a near fatal infection and doctors gave little hope for this little girl's survival. However, after five days in a coma she miraculously survived. Unfortunately, her survival from this infection was not without significant cost. The infection caused extensive tissue damage, and Bella underwent quadruple amputation surgery and is currently facing an extremely long and hard recovery at Children’s Hospital in Boston with extensive rehabilitation to follow, as she learns to live life without her limbs. You can read all about Bella here.
Erin has organised 4 blog hops for Bella. Each week there will be candy on offer. Erin is asking that you make a card and send it to Bella to let her know that people are thinking of her. Please show Bella you care by sending a card today. For all the details please visit Erin's blog.

Now for my news. I am thrilled to say I have been chosen as one of the GDT's at Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge. I was most surprised (and excited lol!) when I saw my name on the blog last night. I love CC products especially the super cute Popcorn the Bear and am looking forward to being a member of the DT for 3 months starting in August.
I am off work today but have a very busy day planned. I am going to watch Chloe's class assembly this morning and then having a BBQ lunch at Jamie's school. I also need to make a box for a wedding card I made yesterday. It's for my cousin and the wedding is tomorrow!
PS: If you are interested I have blog candy here.
