Three More Little Cards!

Good Morning Everyone and I hope you are fine and well, big hugs to those who are not, and hope you will feel tip top soon.

Woke up to a foggy morning, and my dearest hubby left early to go down and do some hillwalking in the Cairngorms, and has left his phone at home, no wonder I worry.  However the fog has now burnt off and it's shaping up to be a nice day.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card, which didn't pop up when I scheduled it, but thanks to the tips received from your good selves, I now know the error of my ways.  I had my time zone at Pacific Time, silly old me, so hopefully that's it sorted.

I would like to say welcome to my newest follwer, Sue, thank you for choosing to follow my wee blog with all it's ramblings, but hopefully projects that you will like.

I've an afternoon at work today, so I thought I would do my post just now.  I know I will be tired later and if today is anything like Monday at work, I certainly will be.  After five months away from dealing with people with mental health problems, I thought I was loosing the plot the other day, and finished up exhausted.  Even my colleague thought it was a particularly frenetic day.

So to my little cards, 
I've used the Tinsel stamp again but this time just layered it over some LOTV Christmas Paper, with some silver twine and a few blue gems and glittered up the tinsel work.

Die'sire Tree Die and icicles die turned into grass with Green glitter card, lots of little gems.

SB Snowflake Die, Papermania Snowflake Ebossing Folder and Christmas ribbon, and a few pearls.

I'm really awfully pleased with how they have turned out, although self praise is no praise at all, as they say, nevertheless, I'm pleased.

Away now to get myself together and get on my merry way.  Have a good day yourselves, whatever it is you do and see you all soon, happy crafting and remember if you visit, please leave a wee comment, I love to know you have been here and I will be delighted to return the compliment and visit you.

I know how you feel about the phone Kate before I went on my carers break to look after my hubby he was a devil for not answering his phone! or replying to my texts LOL he drove me up the wall, now he can't get away hahaha. These cards are so pretty hope you have a good day lots of huggles Sue xxx

Fabulous cards and love the sentiment!! I know what you mean about worrying when Alistair is away. John is a terror when he is away. I have now got him into the habit of at least a quick text. Although to be fair when he's up in the mountains coverage is patchy - I worry and then get two or three messages together when he's back in reach of a tower, or whatever it is! Love and hugs from Christine xx
