Snowman Family

Hi all my wonderful blogging buddies, sorry I haven't been posting anything for a few days but hubster hasn't been well and neither have I,  I can't seem to shake off the effects of that darn flu jab! and then I was back at the doc's for some test's, I've decided getting older isn't fun LOL. Anyway enough whining on there are people a lot worse off than me. I was having a rummage through my wooden stamps and found this. Isn't it awful that we put things away and then forget about them? I think it's such a cute stamp. So I coloured it up and they have glossy accents on their hats and scarves but you can't see it at all and then the background was made up of lots of snippets, so guess where I'm going off to play?? lol Di's wonderful playground, if you haven't come across her blog yet you need to pay her a visit, such a lovely person she is and lots of fun is had by all who venture into the playground :) here is the LINK please go and take a look. 'His Lordship' is fit and well, not happy that he hasn't had lots of really long runs out, but at least he's been out everyday. Hope everyone is safe and well from the horrible weather that we've just had. TFL and take care and I'll be around to your blogs soon huggles xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxx

Poor you (and Hubby) being under the weather again, hope you will both be soon feeling better. I am ashamed to confess that I too have stuff packed away that hasn't seen the light for ages, but then I always think it's like having something new again!! Yours is a fab find, they are so cute and beautifully coloured. Love the patchwork effect with the papers too xx

Sammy said...

Gorgeous card Sue, and I love the stamp! It was a great find. I don't think I've been crafting long enough to have forgotten about anything yet, but I'm sure it'll happen one day, lol.
Hope you both feel better soon! x

Rita said...

Hello Sue. Beautiful card. I have to confess, I have not used my rubber stamps for over 2 years. Now I shall have to look them out and see what i've got. I got my flu jab on Monday after them taking blood. I have now turned a corner as to-day is the best I have been. Hugs Rita xxx

Hi Sue, sure hope you are feeling much better after the ill effects of the flu shot. DH had a bit of a reaction this year, but I was fine. Loved your cutie snow family, and really liked your snowy background. Also admired the way you used those snippets with some gold edging like a patchwork quilt. Very effective. Great card and nice to see ya in the Playground. Indeed, lots of friendly (not to mention talented too!) folks visit there. TFS & Hugs

Hello Sue, sorry to hear that both you and your hubby have not been good, hoping you both pick up soon.
Love your card, so cute and great snippets to make the background, keep well, hugs Kate x

Sue said...

So sorry to hear that you and your hubby have been suffering. I hope you are both feeling better soon.
Your card is gorgeous, adorable image and I love the papers.
Take care of yourself
Hugs Sue xx

It's a bummer when we get sick, hope you both feel better today, it is good to see a card from you and it's a beauty. I tend to put my wooden stamps in a box and forget them, we have so many beautiful ones too/. I used to have them all on shelves on a large book case but since renovating the studio they are boxed...must get them out...

GORGEOUS card Sue and a good enough remedy for being ill.xxxx

Wish I could just be there and give you a big hug to help you get better...no...wait a minute...on second thought i might catch it then...hahahahaha...I will send you a germ free virtual hug instead!

Hope you both feel better soon Sue. I know it is probably not good for "his other Lordship" not to get ill and with you as the carer, it is important for you as well.

Sweet little snowmen...isn't it fun when you find things you had forgotten about...almost better than shopping! lol Great use of snippets on your background.

Asha said...

Oh you poor thing! Best to stay warm and indoors. Hope you both feel better soon. Before I forget...love the card! This icy fam looks so warm in their scarves and hats. Love the colours too.
hugs, Asha

Hi Sue,

Carol Yates said...

Hi Sue, so sorry that flu jab reaction still has a grip on you, hope you are feeling better very soon.x Your card is gorgeous, love the stamp and your stickle paper patchworking. Take care.

Planetsusie said...

Hi there Matey - what a great card, those little snowpeeps are sooo cute. I love their little titfers and mufflers! A great find hidden in your stash methinks.

Sorry that you are still a little off colour and that Paul is also unwell. The flu jab is a funny thing because I also suffer when I have had one but Graham has just had one and has had no effects whatsoever - he is soooo lucky!

Hugs to you and mwah for Ollie babe.

Sorry to hear you have been poorly, get better soon as crafting awaits you in plenty. I love your card what is the sparkly white bits? I really like them and the glitter borders you have created on the paper, excellent effect.

Happy crafting and get well soon.

What a darling Christmas card Sue, those snow people are adorable. Hope you are both feeling better.

Elizabeth said...

Gorgeous card, Sue. The topper is super and I love the papers you've used. Sorry to read that you and your DH aren't well ... I wish you both a speedy recovery. And, no, got to agree, getting old isn't much fun when it brings so many aches and pains. Elizabeth xx

Christine Harrop said...

Hope you are both feeling better soon. Missed this yesterday- sorry. Fabulous snowmen and your colouring is great. Love and hugs Christine xx

Lynn said...

Hi Sue, loving your card. Hope you both feel better soon. Lynn x

Carol said...

So cute Sue, love the trio of snow people. Carol x

Karen Petitt said...

So sorry to hear you are still not well huni, is this the first year you had the flu jab? The reason I asked is after I had it the first time I was rough for a couple of months but it did then ease. My issue is I am immuno surpressed cos of the RA drugs anyways and having that blooming jab made me so bad.
Anyways huni I hope you are both feeling better now and I must just say I love this, it's a gorgeous image which you've coloured wonderfully. I'm trying to remember to dig out the old wooden stamps too - it's become a habit to go to the clear or unmounted ones first. Keep warm and well xx

Di said...

Hi Sue

Hope you're perking up after the flu jab reaction. Oh I do so love that stamp you rediscovered, and great use of snippets too.

Thank you so much for the sweet words about the Playground, it's all you girlies who make it happen - otherwise I'd be sitting on the swings all on me lonesome!

Sorry I'm a bit late calling by, still battling holiday laundry here :(

Hugs, Di xx

Hope you're both feeling better. Thanks for sharing your lovely card for CHNC challenge extra for October - hope to see you again soon. x
