Crazy with paint

Hello Everyone,

Yay!! for me...it's friday morning...only 7 hours of cleaning up everyone elses mess and I can attack my own...mind you..I put my washing out very late yesterday and got it all dry by 7pm...

My dog was freaking out most of the night as kids down the road were letting off fireworks...must have putting them in a metal drum as the explosions were deafening....that drum or whatever wont be there when they come home from school today........and I might throw a lecture in with it...I'm good at that...lol..

Have a card to share today that I do love...but went a bit silly with the white paint...so hid most of it...



Little 'Street Urchin' from Mo Manning....so cute and so lovely to colour....



Coloured with pencils, and edges painted, and added glitter..snowflake all glittered, then in got a twist in it, but has flattened out now....



Papers from a candy I won,  a Grace Taylor chipboard corner sticker...ribbon from my stash, and the flower and leaves from the $2 shop, came in a bunch that you put in a vase, but I pulled it to bits, and I think the berries were from the Christmas department at the warehouse.

I just noticed that the flower is covering the wee bird...but there is one under the petal..

Thats me done....I feel the need for some toast for breakfast so will go and do that then head off to work...The mornings are so beautiful now, and can eat outside, all the flowers I planted in my pots are growing so fast, and starting to look pretty....have stumped the birds in my vege plot with netting....and the snails are no too happy with the pretty, green, but very nasty pellets...haha...

Have a wonderful day/evening  and will catch you all tonight....2 DT posts this Friday..phew...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Gorgeous card, Chrissy - wonderful image and I love your glittery snowflake and the poinsetta. I wish you'd pop over here with your lectures - on the heath where I live, teenagers have been letting off fireworks nearly every night for the past two weeks and every time, my little dog sits under my legs shaking until I pick him up. I'd love to know who sells them to them! Hugs, Marie xx

Fabulous card, Chrissy! This little character reminds me of The Little Match Girl. She is so cute! I even like all the white paint as I think it adds to the charm and shabbiness of her cute little patched dress. Lovely coloring too.

Hugs,
Anniebee

Hi Chrissy. By now you are on your way to it being Saturday. Just know that I am jealous of you. lol...Anyway, great card. I love all the white paint and the cardboard. Very very nice card indeed. I hope you did give the neighbor boys a good whatfor. I don't like crap like that even if it is the 4th of July or New Years. lol... I guess at the tender age of 45 I am and will remain an old fuddy duddy. lol... Enjoy your weekend. Hugs, Lisa
