Sketch # 27 on the JCBC blog

I'm a day late with my DT-card for the Just Christmas and Birthday cards challenge.
Last week Britt brought home a very time comsuming gift from school... LICE!!!!
I've been washing and cleaning eversince. Unbelievable how much work it is to fight those little monsters. I have to vacuum clean, clean our beds, the towles and our clothes everyday, and I have to check our hair 2 to 3 times each day. At the end of the day I'm so very tired I don't have the strength to do any crafting. But it seems we are going to winn this battle (just a few eggs can be found on our heads) so that gives me time to craft again.
Janina made a perfect sketch for someone with almost no time for crafting.
The papers were a gift from a good friend so I can't tell you from which brand. The stamp is from Whipper Snapper and the buttons are from stash.

Thanks for stopping by today,

xoxo Karin

Hi Karin, gosh you've been having a hard time! Lice seem to be making a big comeback here too, I'm convinced its got worse since they got rid of the 'nit nurses' over here, we used to get our heads checked once a month when I was little by the school nurse. Great card, such a good image. Hugs Dawn Marie.xx

Sorry to hear about your troubles. I have heard that coconut shampoo and conditioner helps keep away the lice. I have no idea if it is true. Cute card!

YIKES Karin sorry to hear about the not so nice gift from school. Blow dry your hair on the hottest heat will also help.

Onto your amazing card. Love that image and the papers are so cool with it! :)

Sorry to hear about your unwanted visitors when my son ws at school he oly picked them up once thank goodness but I used the shampoo from the chemist so it didn't take long to get rid of them. It is a headache though and you must be shattered poor hun.

Love the card just gorgeous.

Hope you are rid of those "creatures" really soon. I have sat here reading your post scratching away merrily. Just mention the word nit/lice and that's me scratching my scalp away ! !
