I've not been feeling very well today - a bit much chocolate yesterday perhaps!
I hope you soon feel better.

Hi Sue,
I'm still smiling from reading your comment on my blog, that was hilarious! Maybe they did an English version of Pippi as well, I'm not sure?! Good call to make a X-mas card on a day like this, it started off ok in the morning, but then it got all gloomy, nothing like yesterday with the beaming sun and one really could feel that Spring had arrived. Sweet Christmas card, hope you're feeling better soon! Hugz, Sandy

Doreen said...

I like this sweet, pink Christmas card! It does have the right Christmas feel to it in spite of the non traditional choice of color. The die cut hollies, pearls and glitter pompon are such lovely details!

Sorry to hear that you are unwell, I hope you feel loads better soon.
