Christmas cards....

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my readers (if there's still anyone coming around). I know... I've been a really bad blogger the last few months... sorry...

I never got around to blog about the Christmas cards I made for Christmas.... so, better late than never, right? (Click on picture for larger view.)
These first three were coloured with watercolours. It's been ages since I played with my watercolours, and I had lots of fun. The stamps are by Panduro.
On the next three, I used my Promarkers to colour in. I also stamped some of the backgrounds (hearts, snowflakes and swirls).

I have used Promarkers on the left one here as well. Stamp is one of the twisted sisters by Sweet November stamps. The right one is made with different stamps, all by Panduro.

Then I ran out of time, and had to make a batch of quick cards...
I used the same lay out as on my previous card, paper from the same set, and there's no colouring in on these ones, just stamping to make everything a bit quicker. I didn't have enough cards to send to all the people I wanted, so I guess I have to start earlier this year....
-
Christmas was spent with my parents in Kristiansand. The girls really enjoyed being with them for a longer period of time. We even got to spend a couple of days more than intended as I got the flu and wouldn't even think about sitting in a car for over four hours to get home on the day we had planned... so hubby took all the presents with him in the car and drove home to go to work, and the girls and I stayed a while longer and flew back home.
I guess flying wasn't the best idea, really.... because when I got home, I got a really bad ear ache, and I have been almost deaf since new years eve.... I think my hearing is a bit better today, but can't say for sure since the house is all quiet....

Var litt for rask...
Sikkert veldig kjekt med julefeiring hos dine foreldre, men dumt at du ble syk da:(
Håper du er bedre nå, og at hørselen er tilbake!
KAN DU HØRE MEG NÅ!!!

These are all so cute Tonje, wonderful Christmas cards! Those Panduro stamps are adorable and I love how you used Jessamine for a Christmas card!
I hope you get your hearing back in your one ear soon! Take care! :)

Godt Nytt År. Jeg har lurt litt på om du hadde flyttet fra Blogglandia. Godt å se deg igjen. :)

Beklager altså, men nå måtte jeg le. Det må være skikkelig problematisk å finne ut om en er døv hvis alt er helt stille.

Men det er guffent med sånn flyforkjølelse-greie i ørene. Du får passse gost på deg selv og vli helt frisk - fort.

Ha en fin uke videre, med eller uten lyd.

Kjempekoselige julekort.
Det er ikke lett å få tid til like mye hobby nå som du jobber fullt.
Du får trøste deg med at i skolen er det mange og lange ferier.

Så fine kort! Yngste dattera styrer på med sånt- tror jeg må vise hene disse...

Å bli syk i juleferien er aldri greit(det vet jeg alt om-pleide alltid å reise hjem før jeg fikk unger, og ble alltid liggende. Det var hvert år!!!)- men det er jo godt å være hjemme da, og ha besteforeldre til avlastning! Håper hørselen har kommet tilbake!
