Withdrawl over....

Hello Everyone,

Well I must admit, although I had no crafting time since TUESDAY...I had the most wonderful time, with my very best friend of 36 years....Yes...I suffered from withdrawls, mainly at night time, as I'm not a TV watcher, but a listener, and I have been sitting watching all the rubbish that I usually listen to...but what a fabulous fun time we have had.

 For a couple of nights we took panadol to ease our aching heads from laughing, twice I had to pull off the highway as we were laughing so much I could not see through the tears...and right now... I cannot even tell you what was so funny....but more than likely she picked up my road rage, and started doing it herself, the difference was, I mutter, she yelled.... as a passenger...lol...

Anyway.. bless her heart, she has gone home today, a very emotional goodbye at the airport, and we vowed never to leave our visits as long as this one [6 years]

And when I wrote things on my blog about her, just to let you  know she was putting the words in my head..sometimes from the bedroom...sometimes from the bathroom...and most times she was sitting next to me.

Right...onto a card...which I made this afternoon, for the Just Magnolia Challenge

I was hopping around today, as needed some inspiration, and found this challenge, so here you go.....



Gorgeous papers from Tatty Teddy 'Especially for you collection', flowers WOC, coloured with pencils.


and green at that....I've never coloured in green before on a Tilda, but I quite like it.
Lovely big sparkly butterfly, and a sentiment [I remembered]

Card number one done......and Oh!... it felt so good.

Thanks for stopping by, and a big welcome to 2 new followers, thank you so much for joining me,
and thank you all for your lovely comments.

See you tomorrow...
Luv CHRISSYxx
