Cards for our little grand daughters at Christmas

As ever, I'm right on the end of the wire with these. I need to go and queue in our Post Office today (might take a book) after going to a funeral at lunchtime and also nursing a stinking cold and cough - once again!!  New bug, old bug - I dunno (: However, I did make some cards for the girls in Germany - which I hope they'll like:

It's from a card set from QVC called 'Patchwork Pals', I'll be honest, they aren't all my favourites, but I got a couple of acceptable cards for Mia and Livi in Germany. What is very cute is that the fronts are covered in acetate and then right behind the image there's a back view!! Kids will be nosy :))

I said, I'm struggling here with yet another cold/cough, as my Dad would have pointed out, it must have been drinking out of damp glasses on the Wednesday night out! And his 'remedy' was to rub your chest with an empty whisky bottle - after drinking the contents - he was a bit of a scallywag :)) But, the show goes on!!

Hi Di

Sorry to hear you have "more" germs. Hurry up and get rid of them before Santa comes to call!!!

Great cards .. .. loving the acetate idea and being able to see a back view as well as a front.

Good luck in the Post Office queue .. .. and sorry you have a funeral to attend :-(

Take care.

Love Jules xx

Your dad sounds great! hee hee I hope you get over your cold real soon. It's a bummer being sick, especially this time of year.

The cards are adorable - and personalized with their names. How thoughtful of you!!!

I got my "craft closet" all done, however, my workspace is still full of packages to post and gifts waiting to be wrapped. Am going to try to join in on the WOYWW - but may be knitwork.

These look super cute I am sure your Grand-daughters will love them. I did my Grandsons the Kanban ones with the wobbily heads and they loved them.
