Day number 2 OFF!!

Hello Everyone,

Well, I'm at the closing of day number 2...[.early evening Saturday actually], and have been a busy little beaver...my youngest son came by and helped me finish off a patio area that I have been making for 2 summers now....just have pots to plant out, and a bit of colour around the place and it will be ready for the first BBQ of the season...looks good, considering it is on the south side and here that is cold,wet, muddy,and blaa...in the winter, but hot as blazers in the summer....

Made a card last night at my daughters...I had to stay with her last night as the boys went to the other G/ma and hubbstar was working...and the sooky bubba  didn't want to be on her own, so she lured me with peppermint chocolate....I fought it long and hard...but I am weak[head down]

Anyway, enough Tom foolery...here is my creation.....



Petty in pink Christmas card...



close up of image from my win at Pollycraft....



Another one for luck....

Coloured with pencils and glittered her socks, and used fabric glittered puff paint for her hat and dress trim....some very pretty lace, then covered most of it up, LOTV sentiment and one big snowflake wgich was from last year and supposed to be a tree ornament..and I popped a pink gem in the middle and a few more around the image.Pink spot paper is 'Tatty teddy'

Would like to enter this sweetie into challenges at...

Polly craft challenge  [Girls-girls-girls]

Little miss muffet   [Girly girl]

All done, thanks for popping in and all your wonderful comments, off to have a wee play,will see you maybe tomorrow...

Luv CHRISSYxx
