Hi everyone, I really must apologise to all you wonderful peeps for not getting round to commenting on your blogs, yesterday was my first day out really, I've had no energy to craft and 'his lordship' has just been left to run around the garden, I'm so glad you can schedule blogs for DT work or I would have been stumped. I had a really nice day yesterday went out with my good friend Jayne, we are known as 'Thelma and Louise', she still keeps saying to me 'why I am Thelma'?? LOL. So we had a few hours out at Debbi Moore's store and Dawn Bibby was there demonstrating. Jayne used to work and be on Debbi's design team for a number of years and still does some but she is doing a degree so she doesn't have that much spare time. Then the highlight of my day was seeing my little friend Jessica who I used to spend a lot of time crafting with and showing her techniques she's only 8 but she is one to watch LOL she is on Debbi's DT now! but I got lots and lots of huggles, she's adorable. It was a great day, I got home and fell asleep ! So tomorrow I'm going to my usual craft club with all my friends so looking forward to it. I hope you are all well and I promise I will visit all your lovely blogs after tea :)) This card I sat and made today, love this snowman LOL TFL and hugglesssssssssssssssssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm glad to see this fun, adorable card. Hopefully, you're on the mend but I can understand it takes a while. I crossing fingers and toes that I don't come down with any of this kind of bug this winter. It can't be fun. Take care.

Marilyn said...

What a fun and cute card! I always admire how some of you do such a great job of the cutting around an image... this looks perfect! Lovely colouring and a pretty layout.

What a great Christmas card. Those little chaps have done a super job on their snowman!
Great bright colours Sue!
Glad to hear you had a good day out. It sounds like a lot of fun too! It is always wonderful to spend time with a good friend and great that you were able to see the young lady!
I have had a cold for weeks and am getting pretty fed up with it too! Just seems to never go away completely...sounds like yours but \i think you have been much, much worse. I think I was lucky and got a mild case...but \i will be glad to see the back of it!

Di said...

Hi Sue - I love this card! Great use of snippets and did you notice how contented the snowman is at having those cuddles? :)

Glad you feel somewhat better - these things do take their toll. How lovely is someone would ujst flick a switch overnight and we'd bounce out of bed and find it had all gone away! Take it slowly hun!

Hugs, Di xx

Gorgeous card Sue, so sorry you are still not well huni. You must take care of yourself, don't worry about visiting me huni, I know if I've not heard from you that you are rough. You have mentored an 8 year future crafting star by the sound of it - now that is seriously impressive. Hugs from me xx

Kathleen said...

Hi Sue,
my wonderful little blogging matey.
Now this card is really superb, it make me want to cuddle a snowman too. Even if it's would be blooming cold. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Love your design and the colours are amazing.
So glad your feeling a little better, you take it carefully now and don't over do it. I can sympathize with you I get very tired most days and have to have a nap now and again otherwise I just couldn't go on. well it's my age I think. lol.
Love and hugs to all in the J household.
Lots of crafty love. Fairy Godmother Jenny L.

Hi Sue, and thanks for your visit. It's been gray & gloomy each day we've been in Fla., but it's even worse at home, so we're not complaining. It drizzled some here today, but we got out to have lunch, found a new stamp store (had intended to visit another one about 45 mins away, but thunderstorms were predicted for late afternoon, and we didn't want to travel too far away in case of nasty weather). I managed to get to a Jo-Ann & Michael's too. Your card is just lovely. I'm liking those rusty colors with your pretty snowman & friends. Beautiful coloring and your pearl trim is just fabulous. So even & spaced. You have steady hands. So glad to hear you were able to get out for a bit of fun, and hope your energy comes back very quickly. TFS & Hugs. Stay warm.

Hugs Mrs A.
