Cold Hands Warm Heart

Hello Everyone, 
I'm sorry I've been such a bad blogger for the past week.  Tom has been off school poorly for the 3rd time this month! He's got a virus and just isn't shaking it off! and I've had a few headaches...think I might need new glasses! I'm so behind with everything at the minute and I would like to tell you that blogging will be back to normal in the next few days but I've got a hectic month ahead! 
I had a craft fair last week, and got a few orders...17 Christmas cards ..all personalised! A lot of them are based on cards I have already made and put on my blog, so I won't bore you when I get round to making's one of the orders...
This is 'Cold Hands Warm Heart' from Lili of the Valley.
I've coloured them with promarkers and the background paper is from Lili of the Valley
I've used a Marianne Creatables tree die and a Crafters Companion snowflake die. 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Christmas
Crafters Cafe - Use an image with a Hat
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra - Anything Christmas

This is so cute Lorraine - Snowmen are my favourite Christmas card theme and this is just a fab design, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who's dropped of the radar lately - I've had so many things go wrong lately that I think i've forgotten how to blog! - hope you get on track soon hugs Judith x

Life has a way of taking over sometimes Lorraine, hope Tom is on the road to recovery and you go get your eyes checked!! I love this gorgeous card, so perfect for Christmas.

Poor Tom, sorry to hear he is not so well, sometimes these viruses just take hold and last for ages. I hope he gets over it soon.
Gorgeous sweet card, this is a lovely image and beautifully coloured too.
Hopefully your headache disappears soon, hugs Kate x

Christine L said...

This is fabulous Lorraine.... more wonderful colouring and shading! Well done on your craft fair..... personlised cards always go down well... I used to sell lots when I lived on the Isle of Wight! Where did you do your craft fair? Most of the ones round Wetherby charge around £40 per pitch - which is a little too much for us card-makers, don't you think?

PS... Hope your son feels better soon... can't be much fun for either of you! x

Gibmiss said...

Hi Lorraine
Hope you are all feeling better now.... Gorgeous card....
Hugs Sylvie xx

Dapoppins said...

I hope everyone at your house starts to feel better soon! Wonderful Card. I love the subtle shading. Thanks a bunch for playing along at Party Time Tuesdays!

Anne said...
