Yes- and more Christmas Cards

Good morning to you all its Tuesday 5.30am, im not sleeping too good just now so i thought it was best to just get up and make the most of my time. Have almost finished those cards (yes, i know, ive been saying it for days!!!) but i really think i have this time! but i have to then start the wrapping of presents! i always start off enthusiastic but start losing heart towards the end! So, hows your week going? i hope you are all managing to get things done. So much to do and so little time as always.

This is one of my favourite cards i adore these precious moments characters, i remember them from when i was a little girl, along with the Mabel Lucy Attwell characters, does anyone else remember them?

I have recently acquired some other stamps in this design and can't wait to use them in the New year. I was saddened by the fact that these stamps are no longer in production, so will have to search ebay when finances pick up later in the new year.

Of course these are my favourite Elizabeth bell images, i have to say her work is always first class and im looking forward to using her lates lot of stamps that i havn't yet had chance to ink up.

These Gruffies by stampabilities are also some of my favourite stamps, i do have trouble colouring these images though, so i decided not to bother, i just coloured the scarf and branches, hope it doesn't look too odd! I have to say i adore the large cuttlebug snowflake die i am going to have to try and get my hands on one of those too in the new year.

Finally this is not my normal taste, but i felt not everyone likes the cute look, hard to believe but apparently true, according to my husband! This is obviously not a picture of me in my younger days, but of how David would like me to be!!!! I have to say i have grown to quite like this stamp.

Well thats it for today, my camera needs recharging so i don't think ill be posting anymore for at least a day or so.

Hope you have a good day each and every one of you and remember to keep warm, its freezing!

Hugs Linda x

Fabulous cards! and yes I remember Mabel Lucy Atwell but I'm much older than you! Having 2 boys in the late 70's 80's it's that era that I've missed out on as they were into Paddington and Thomas! Love that foxy lady stamp, it would be great for some of my 'awkward' customers - where is it from? hugs, annie x
