Bah Humbug!

Why is it that everybody gets ill in the run up to Christmas?  It happens every year!  So far, hubby put his back out, Morgan's been off school with a chesty cough... I've taken Morgan back to school this morning (still coughing, but feeling better), walked back in the house and Dex started being sick - lovely!  I hadn't even got his coat off, so everything's now in the washing machine... sigh.... so much for all my plans to get lots done today!


Just though I'd quickly share another card I made with one of the new Little Claire stamps.  This one is called 'birdcage', although I've cut the actual birdcage part off for this card, the stamp is available to pre-order here.  The papers are Basic Grey 'olivia' with coredinations cardstock.  Sentiment is a digi one from Paper Makeup, cut out with a nellie snellen die.  Black pearls from stash.
