I can't believe it's true!  Where is the year disappearing to?  While ya'll ponder on that, I'll share with you my July DT card for CHNC Extra!

I didn't have a whole lot of time to get this one done...I've just started a second shift job last week that has me working 4 10 hour days.  So, I'm in bed until 9:30-10:00, which doesn't leave a whole lot of time to get things done before heading out.  The perk for the moment is having Fridays off, but that will be ending after Labor Day.  Hopefully a 1st shift position will open up that I can bid on that will get me out of that mess! 
Back to my card; I used the adorable Bugaboo image Turtles - ChristmasAs always, Bugaboo is our wonderful sponsor:
And the randomly drawn winner at the end of the month will win $21 worth of digi goodness!  :)
I also used the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:
Other challenges:
Animal Friends #40:  Animals with dies/punches
CHNC #287:  Use a Sentiment
Well, that's it from me today.  I am really looking forward to this long weekend here in the US!  HAPPY 4TH of JULY to all my American friends and family, and HAPPY CANADA DAY to all my Canadian family and friends. 
Take care and God Bless!
