Surfs up!!

Hello everyone,

Managing to sit for awhile today..stupid back...I've had to stand a lot longer to craft lately, and have decided that, that is most of the problem, being tall, I'm leaning over to work, and pulling from the bottom ...up... so I'm sitting on a plush fur cushion, resting the weary muscles,with my wheat pack tucked down my trousers..lol..

Have a wee card..just for fun..









This little fellow was a freebie at Raising our kids  real lovely to colour, and have a few more up my sleeve, for later on.

Coloured with pencils and paper pieced his shorts and the boogie board.
The seagulls are actually doves, a stamp I have  and use for weddings and sympathy cards, but modified the colouring and to me... they look  like seagulls...

The sentiment is a sticker from scrapbook days, new my hoarding would come in handy.

Ok...now I have to move.. so will say farewell..and do some more commenting standing up...not easy..no wonder I am behind..but I am trying.
Will catch you all tomorrow...
Luv CHRISSYxx
