New day...Monday

Hello Everyone,

You guessed it...I'm so stiff this morning.. look like the crooked man who walked a crooked mile..
and to make matters worse.. when I'm finished work today..I have a small truck load of dirt and compost mixed arriving...and it is cloudy..rain threatening..and I will be shovelling dirt flat out into gardens, and onto an old lawn that needs a facelift....The things we do!!!



We are away again with a new MAKE IT MONDAY LINKY PARTY  and thankyou all for the amazing entries we had.....



For my card this week I have done my first Teddy Bo card...I love this bear, so easy to colour...
Coloured with my pencils..die cut leaves...cute buttons and string..and a sweetcorn charm...



Bit of a side view.....



This week we are sponsored by the lovely Mandy over at








Mandy is so kindly offering the Primrose Path digi paper collection to our winner!


Gorgeous colours...I need some of these papers.

Of course I had to pick my favourite again....and after long hard looks I found this little cutie....




This was an entry from Jacee #211  so cute...and she some really lovely shots of her card on her blog..

I think thats all  my work done....now it is up to you...post those gorgeous projects up on Make it Monday  and be in to win....

Have a fabulous week, click the MIM link and pop over to the main blog for linking up your paper projects  and to see my lovely teamies gorgeous creations.

Lisa M said...

Chrissy this is simply perfect. I love how you decorate a card and I'm drooling over the little corn charm,it's absolutely darling. Beautiful combination of fall leaves and the twine spaced on one side and then gathered for the knot on the other is just a perfect touch. OMG...I thought I was losing my eyesight while typing this. LOL...then I realized your virtual cat actually breathes...hahahaha. Phew!
Good luck with the yard facelift and I hope the weather works out for you.
Hugs,
Lisa xx
