The Fab Four

If I can just go for the sympathy vote for a minute, I'm feeling really sorry for myself, my nose is streaming (you really wanted to know that, didn't you?) my throat isn't as sore as it was at the beginning of the week - that is until I cough when my whole body hurts like the devil. Hubby and I both have dreadful colds - we're blaming some unknown person we travelled with on the packed-out tube (underground railway) on the way to the Coldplay concert on Friday night. Because he's suffering just as much as I am we're just having to muddle through - neither of us is well enough to take control of the fetching and carrying and shopping for medicine stock ups! I guess that's why I'm on here looking for some sympathy lol, I know it's just a cold and will go away soon but when you're in the middle of it, well, you want all the sympathy you can get, don't you?

The good thing about blogging. forums and all those other "social networking" do-dahs is that you can gossip away as much as you like without passing on all the germs you're enduring! And it doesn't hurt your poorly throat either.

My offering on Bubbly Scrumptious this week is a batch of easy to make Christmas Cards using up those scraps of paper and other bits and pieces from September's Bubbly Funk kit.
Yes, I know it's shocking that I'm actually making those cards - believe me, it's scary to me too.

We send quite a lot of cards each year and I feel guilty if I don't make them all. I'm rubbish at making batches of cards that are all the same, so I find that having some fairly simple designs that I can tweak as I go, or make with different papers and embellishments is the best way to go for me.

The pics on here are sneak peeks of what you can find if you visit the Bubbly Scrumptious blog.
All the photos and instructions on how I put the cards together are there, and apart from a few bottles of Stickles, some ink pads and basic tools like craft knife and punches everything I've used is from the September Kit.
HERE to visit my page for today's Bubbly Scrumptious and if you'd leave a comment on there I'd be really chuffed! (I'd like one here too, though because I'm greedy! lol)

Thanks for visiting today, and a big Thanks You for all the lovely comments you've left over the last days and weeks, they really mean a lot. I'm back tomorrow with my DCM - that's if I manage to make something today to put on there!
