More Christmas cards to share...

Hello friends... I am as sick as a dog at home... didn't sleep a wink last night and my body is aching all over... thanks to those who have emailed me good wishes... I really appreciate it.  I really hate being sick, so the emails and sms's from my work friends are really most welcoming...

I made 2 more Christmas cards which I'd like to share with you and am really loving this new look compared to last years cards.  I hope the recipients are going to see an improvement in my technique, but most importantly, that they'll just enjoy the Christmas wish being sent...

I just adore this little Lili of the Valley christmas stamp.  She is such a pleasure to colour in.  It's the second time I've used her, the other is for a project which I'll share with you all later in the year....

And then I decided to go completely off the christmas reds and greens and used pink, green and blue, hope you like this one.  She's a Lili of the Valley fairy.  As she's carrying a present I thought it appropriate to use on a Christmas card... and

because she's a fairy, you just have to use lots of glitter... you can pick it up better in this pic below...

Just loved that pink paper with the snowflakes on it, I think that was my last piece and can't remember where I purchase it from ... boohooo

I found one of those glue pens with the stickles inside, they come in gold, silver, green, red, blue, etc.  I've had them for absolute ages and thought I would use the silver one to cover the dots on the gift. I was quite thrilled with the outcome.  Around her skirt and wings I used Rangers Stickles, Star Dust, just love that one!

That's it from me for now.  I think I'm going to head for bed to see if I can catch up on some sleep...

Thank you so much for the compliments on my other cards, I really hope you like these as well.  I am really loving this Clean and Simple look.  Take care, tons of hugs, Sharon x

Your cards are beautiful Sharon! I love the papers and your colouring is so awesome! Last year I made Christmas cards with ribbon and buttons and the price to mail them was crazy, so I learned my lesson...simplicity is better! I really hope you feel better soon. Nothing worse then not feeling like yourself.
