so tired!

I have started attempting to get fit again...the only problem is that my hip has decided to object, meaning that I am not sleeping very well as it is giving me jip at night.  I am so tired today and so ready for a gentle and relaxing weekend at home with the family.  We have nothing planned which is a really nice feeling!
Crafting wise I have finally got going with my Christmas cards...simple and elegant is definitely the theme for this year.  This first card uses three Christmas trees (a free stamp from last year) stamped in versamark ink and topped with three gems, as such the card fits with PTW and PIO 'things in threes' challenge and with the stamp simply 'hard rocks' challenge this week.
The next card also uses three images, but this time three stockings, which have been coloured using my promarkers.
This card uses two different stamps, broken china distress ink, a white pen and my favourite sakura stardust pen to create this Winter scene that fits with the Spoonfull of sugar 'winter wonderland' theme and with the SCSC distressing theme.
Finally I made a birthday card with autumnal colours (Kaboodle Doodle challenge), and a butterfly (CCT -bugs and Penny's challenge - anything that flies). I would love to know what you think about these cards. Have a really nice weekend everyone.

Oh wow I love this style of card I recently purchased some stamps and love playing but have not managed to create anything as stunning as this with that perfect distressing
