Pastels and pink

Hello Everyone,

Well.. another day.. another dollar....I was shattered by the time I got home last night...

But did manage a bit of colouring once I settle down...the night before, the neighbours in the flat behind me [ must have been pay day] were on something that really livened them up, and all I could here was there stupid laugh ...thumping..and banging..walking up and down the share drive..my security light kept coming on.. which set the dog off....so I didnt get my 6 hours sleep, so was a bit sluggish yesterday...but last night my head hit the pillow at 11pm and I knew nothing till 5am...brilliant sleep....so off with a hiss and a roar today...short day...yay...for Wednesday...still have the boys...and a late night as Dad works till 10pm and Mum away at conference for work...

Well. that was long winded...onto my card...



That wasn't supposed to happen...I left 2 images highlighted and they both popped up at the same time..lol..never mind they are here now...close up of image and flowers and my pin I made...but think the silver thing is upside down..or the pearl on top of the pin is too small...either or there it is...



Theres the whole card...lovely Teddy Bea sitting in her garden..all done in pastel colours as that is the challenge at Teddy Bo   this week...cute huh!!!

Coloured with pencils..papers are 'Hanoverian linen' [floral]...and Andrea Jayne - Tulip linen..

Lace and spotty ribbon from my stash...flowers WOC..and the home made pin..lol..

Well, my high gear did not last as long as I thought yseterday...but I have my back up bananas today...they always give me a kick...another gorgeous day...but rain forecast for later today and Thursday...[very deep moan, for Thursday..my lady's wash day]

Time to jump on my bike [car] and get to work...will love and leave you...welcome to my new follower, thank you so much for joining me...have a great whatever you are going to do......

Luv CHRISSYxx
