Woe is me!

Morning lovely bloggers!  Hope you're all feeling better than me today - I have the most stinking cold, so don't come too close!!  Took the day off work yesterday but can't today as it's our busy week ( I work in payroll) so going to struggle in ( this said in my best martyr tones with my hand against my forehead!! Lol!).
At least I was able to make a couple more Christmas cards for the total - up to 83/120 now!! And here they be:



These are made with the delightful Antoinette from Kraftin Kimmie, another fav for Christmas this year. I've watercoloured her with Distress Inks and layered her up onto a mixture of MME and K&Co winter/christmas papers.  The little skate charms I've had for ages and thought they were made for this image.  The colours weren't quite right though, so coloured the tops and the little star with my promarkers to match the papers.  The big bow on the first one was tied with the fabby Bow Easy which I bought at Quixotic Paperie.  Speaking of which, I'm entering these cards onto their blog this week as they are asking for us to use charms.

Well, off to finish getting ready for work, enjoy yours whatever you're doing!!  Take care and thanks for stopping by!
Signature final

Oh you poor thing, perhaps a hot toddy tonight before you go to bed would be good (any excuse!!). Cards look lovely I wish the 200 I've made so far were for me but as it stands I have only got about 20 done for myself! Hope you feel better soon hugs Pam

Hi Julie

I hope that your cold is now sorted - though people are saying they are dragging on and taking a bit of shaking off!

We got the germs here and nearly four weeks later are still coughing!!

How goes your Christmas card count? I was well impressed with how many you are hoping to make.

Love Jules xx
