Christine, This is a wonderful card and you did a fabulous coloring job. I am so sorry you have that cold. It is really going around here a lot. Everyone has been getting it. I's just keeping my fingers crossed that I don't get it. Feel better soon.

Fabulous card Christine..as always, but you know I always give out gold stars if they are male cards!

You are not alone..me and him indoors are both full of head colds..it only seems like 5 minutes ago that I got shut of the last one! Hope you're feeling better soon.

So..you had a little retail therapy did you? I can guarantee you'll be stroking them for a while before you're brave enough to cut them!

Love & hugs

Hi Christine, hope you are getting rid of that 'sticker' of a cold. Keep warm, lots of fluids (which ever takes you fancy) and relax - crafting is good!!!
Your card is fabulous - love the design and colours, I do think Edwin is so sweet and I love how you incorporated the music score.
