Beautiful cards Nic, perfect colouring and lovely papers. Hope work isn't too manic over the next couple of days and you certainly deserve a few days off especially after being poorly. Happy Christmas to you and yours.

2 fabulous cards Nic, love the papers and design and of course the cute little mouse. We are open until 6 Christmas Eve!! Hope we don't get many in though, open just for emergencies. You'd think people would have better things to be doing than being poorly at Xmas lol. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Holidays and thanks for all the lovely comments you have left me this year. Debs xx

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response .

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time

Awwwwwwh! Hunny, these are both absolutely GORGEOUS! Loving Henry (even after a mouse infestation in our garage) and, as always, your colourwork is breathtaking. Christmas hugs, Sxx

Judi said...

GREAT cards Coops! Like you, my family ones always end up being the last I make. Perhaps we should get stuck in and make them in January next year, that way they'll be done, and we'll have a few more hours to prepare next year. On the other hand, we'll probably put them somewhere 'safe', and not be able to find them, lol.

Hugs & a VERY Happy Christmas to you.

Love
