Merry & Bright



Good Day

I have been very quiet late due to the fact that we were away for our summer holidays. We just came back and I thought I'll give you a bit of how we celebrate Christmas in South Africa. In a sense it is totally different from the Northern Hemisphere, since we have temperatures between 28°C & 40°C. Here, Christmas is in the middle of our summer school holidays and most people are on holidays, with friends and family and many of them next to our beautiful coast. They do celebrate it, like this little penguin from Digi Darla on the beach. The papers are from my stash and I used a Cuttlebug emboss folder and Spellbinder diecuts.

Challenges I joining:
The Outlawz Colour Challenge 18 December with twist of wings
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #185 - Sketch
Digi Darla's #42 - Holiday cheer with embossing

Thank you and wish you all a very blessed festive season and may love and laughter fill your days and may you make that unexpected call to an all forgotten one to spread some love!

Thank you for your presence in life!
Hugs
Olga
