Bert, a catapult and a candy winner

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to my newest followers. My cold got much worse yesterday and I am feeling pretty awful today. I had an interrupted night and was sitting downstairs drinking hot chocolate at 5 o'clock but then went back to bed. Hope I sleep better tonight.

My card today is the first play I have had with one of the Cutie Patooties which I won from Little Claire for naming them Bert and Mary. Here's Bert looking mischievous with his catapult. He has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The papers are some old Dovecraft ones which I think nearly everyone bought. They are such great papers for male cards. I love blue and brown together ad used DI Frayed Burlap on all the edges. I also used my MS zigzag punch and added a Craftwork cards sentiment and some card candi.

I sure hope today you are feeling much better than last night. Sounds like some good rest is all you need. I love your little boy card. The background paper is so suited and the colours are so nice...browns and blues are perfect!

Hi Marianne,
Gorgeous card hunni. Love that cute image.
If I have a bad cold I always find that a measure of whisky topped up with lemonade and popped into the microwave for 15-20 seconds works wonders. It really helps you to sleep. Who knows? Gotta be worth a try eh??? Hope you're feeling better real soon hun

Hope the cold clears quickly Marianne and you soon feel much better....lots of VIT C in the shape of Lemons and a spoonful of honey in it with boiling water....of course a tot of whisky is a good addition to it as
