Graham's card


This is the card I made for hubby. I bought this stamp when it came out in July and have resisted using it for anyone else as it is perfect for him.  Our car is kept in the garage but if it was outside and it snowed he would soon be out there clearing away the snow.

Image - LOTV
Medium - Copics, Sakura pens on the lights
Papers - LOTV Festive Trimmings
Dies - Sweet Dixie fairy lights, MFT wonky stitched rectangles, Doohickey slender firs, Dee's tree, Simon Says Kate snowflake

Challenges
The Cutie Pie a day in the snow 
Allsorts Christmas lights 
Winter Wonderland frame it 

Well I didn't get my planned day out yesterday. I have had a persistent cough since the end of September. I went to the Doctor then and he said it is a nasty virus which can last up to 100 days!  At the beginning of this week it got worse and I started to hear a rattle in my throat and upper chest. Back to the Doctor Tuesday afternoon and I now have a chest infection so have some antibiotics.  I am hoping it will now clear up as I am really fed up with coughing.

Fabulous card Marianne.
I hope the meds sort everything out for you. There have been so many 'bugs' about since the Summer, everyone seems to have been coughing or sneezing.
