Nordic Christmas....

Hi.  I've been MIA for nearly a week.... all because I've got a bad bout of bronchitis.  Been coughing and feeling lethargic since Thursday last week.   Over the weekend, I went to the Chocolate and Coffee show (Son's partner Erin, was exhibiting her little biscuit,  XoBites) and other than that, didn't feel like doing much.  Wasn't sleeping well with waking every hour or so with coughing.  So took myself off to the doctors on Monday to find I had a really bad bronchitis and needed to stay home for 3 days!  Great I thought, lots of crafting.... but oh no, simply have had the energy till late yesterday and even today, I haven't been that enthused - so know I AM sick!  

I did manage to make a little set of 4 cards I've called my Nordic Christmas collection.  I took some Nordic patterned paper fro Sugar and Spice Studio and made a simple set of cards.


The PP takes centre stage with sentiment stamps from Altenew's Lyrical Script set.  The snow flakes are from a Hero Arts set. 

Just what I needed.... simple but effective.  And the Christmas stash grows quickly with these CAS cards.

I'm off for a quiet walk, hoping to help clear the lungs.    Take care

Such pretty papers made into lovely cards, Dawn! I've had some health problems, too--sure zaps the creative juices--couldn't even read blogs. I'm better & hope you are, too!
