Hi ya, I'm  feeling really 'chipper' today.

My cold has almost gone and  I'm looking forward to the weekend when I will see all my crafty mates at the Allhallows Crop on Saturday...... whoopee do!

 I wanted to make another Christmas PIAO card ( plonk it all on!) this week but I was worried about my nose dripping all over my beautiful Christmastime papers!

You folks understand how that could upset one! lol

So out came my Speedball Brayer and Adirondack Inks ...along with a selection of Clarity Stamps. I enjoyed making the cards shown here and I really got into a rhythm, rolling the brayer between sneezes!

Close up of the 'dots' lol!
