Sweet Xmas wishes

Bleh.  That's how I'm feeling.  Bleh.  Sitting here in my dressing gown, with a nasty cough, chapped lips and a dribbly nose.  Attractive, huh?!  Now I've left you with that image, let me remedy that!  I've got three cards to show you today, all featuring A La Modes stamps by My Favorite Things...

I don't think that last one looks very Xmassy, does it?!  I think the sentiments are general enough to use it for something else! 

Well, no more chat from me - off to bed with my cough syrup!

Love the two first cards that are much more Christmassy than the third... Hope you recover soon!

Wow hunny, you've been a busy girl! All three cards are superb, but agree that the third isn't so Christmassy as the first two. Beautiful work and stunning papers. Hope you are feeling better soon sweetie. Comfort hugs, Sxx

She is so cute Mary and very modern. Love all three colourways and the pompoms are adorable.
Hope you feel better soon. I have had the same symptoms now from the end of October and totally fed up with it:( My craft room is like one bit tissue box!

Poor you, hope you'll feel better soon (not well enough to go to work but well enough to craft - lol). These are so pretty and I love the colours on the last one. And the embellishments on all of them are really super.
