Bad cold!

Don’t you just hate having a bad cold. My darling son has kindly shared his absolute stinker of a cold with me and I am full of it, as is he, bless him. Alex is really suffering with this one, with an intermittently raised temperature, nasty cough and exhaustion. He has still wanted to go to nursery this week though and by all accounts has enjoyed himself even if he is a little more subdued and easily upset than usual. When he comes home in the evening the only thing he really wants to do is watch a little television and then have a bath and go to bed.
I have been attempting to crack on with my Christmas cards this week and made the first two following Unscripted sketch #27 using the snowflake embossing folder on my cuttlebug.
This is the second one with sakura stardust adding some sparkle to the background.
The next card is Tim’s favourite (he likes green) and follows CPS # 138. For some reason I found this sketch really hard to work with, but the card turned out OK in the end.
Finally I followed this weeks Sketch Saturday sketch for this card using slightly subtle shades of blue (the colour reproduction isn't good in these photos I'm afraid). I am off out to a work’s leaving do tonight so must dash. Have a great rest of the week everyone.
