Crafty sentiments xmas in June challenge and new release!

Hi Everyone! Well the kids missed sports day yesterday due to illness but we still have nursery sports day tomorrow so lets hope the weather holds out for that and lets hope noone else is sick between now and then lol!
Thanks to the national teachers strike though I still have a house full of children today and a house full of builders!
So what did I do last night once I got everyone in bed?! Did I craft my heart away?! No I spent my evening eating homegrown cherries dipped in chocolate and watching Twilight! Well a girl has to do what a girl has to do when she is fed up with cleaning up after sick children and messy builders! Hopefully I am now on the right track for the rest of the week, a good dose of RP and chocolate gets me right as rain again!!!
Todays challenge over at crafty sentiments is one of those mid year festive ones! I have to say that it's a good job we have xmas related challenges from here on in otherwise I wouldn't get around to making any xmas cards!
We also have lot of fab new xmas related releases and this is one of them and he is called "taking a nap".

I have followed the sketch this week at sweet sketch wednesday and have used papermania deck the halls paper. My sentiment is a freebie download ticket and my ribbon and brads are from stash. My flowers are wild orchids and my charm is from pink gem designs.

Isn't he a cutie? I have coloured him with prismas as per the norm!

I also want to enter this into Creative craft world xmas in June challenge, For fun xmas, Crafty catz add a charm and crafty Anns xmas in June challenge.
Please pop by and see what the other DT have made for this challenge and there will be another new release with blog hop happening tomorrow so look out for that!
Hugs to all and thanks so much for coming by!
