Morning all.  Tis warm is it not?  I think the reason for my "out-of-sorts" at the weekend is that I am coming down with something - the throat is sore, the glands are up, the snuffles are starting.  What a time of year to catch a flippin' cold!

Colds are for Christmas, and so is this handsome young man - he is my first outing in August for the Lili Of The Valley Design Collective:

Oh I do love me some James Bear!
Painted (of course) in Distress Inks (ReInkers) with some dots of Ice White Viva Pearl Pen
Papers are all Dovecraft Krafty Christmas
Sentiment by Paper Smooches
Pearls from stash

You may have noticed that the Lili bricks-n-mortar shop is closed at the moment.  Don't panic people, this is simply down to relocation - the on-line store continues as normal supplying all those lovely goodies.  Speaking of goodies, there are more to come this month with Part II of the Christmas release - keep an eye out for the release date and the obligatory sneak peeks soon.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Hi Squirrel,
This is a beautiful Christmas card. Your colouring is stunning and I love the colours you have chosen for your card design - what I call 'proper' Christmas colours and I love them.
Sorry to hear about 'the lurgy'! I am just getting over a nasty one which involved a very irritating cough which has had me consigned to sleeping on the sofa because I keep waking everyone up! (Just getting my own back I say)! (-;
Hope you feel better soon...

Sue said...

Gorgeous card Squirrel. Adorable James is coloured so beautifully and I love those papers.
I hope you are feeling better soon.
hugs Sue xx

Oh, so sorry to hear you you are coming down with a cold, hope you feel better soon.
If only handsome James could come and give you a big cuddle I'm sure you'd feel better in no time! He is the bestest bear ever and I love your gorgeous card; the muted reds and greens are lovely :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

What a perfectly delightful card! Although, in real life I don't think Christmas trees are that huggable. James certainly is though!!
