Jolly Angel

Happy Friday! How is everyone? Not too many coughs and colds I hope :) I've had a cold all week which won't shift and is just really annoying me now! I'm really going to try to take it easy for the next few days as I'm going to Paris on Sunday for a few days with a friend. We only decided to go last night... I love impulsive travel plans!!

Here are a few Chrissy cards I made with the yummy Jolly by Golly Cosmo Cricket papers and one of the beautiful Lockhart angel stamps - I just love colouring these. (They're from Ellen Hutson in the US)
