Pretty Snowman

Hello Everyone,

What a day yesterday!! What should have been a breeze turned into a hurricane about midday.
I went to a clients house and the waterbed had sprung a leak upstairs and her basement was flooded by the time I turned up. Then the sky turned the darkest grey, the heavens opened, and thunder roared,the wind blew like there was no tomorrow...and I was already up to my knees in water....so glad there is only 8 working hours a day, was so glad to get home...

Have a 'pretty' snowman today...weel I tried to make him pretty to fit a challenge at bunnyzoes   and they want [anything Christmas...add pearls]



Coloured with pencils, and my marianne creatables die cut in half..papers from 'forever friends'[santa on his way] and embossed panel with snowflake folder..  and the cute image is a freebie fron Spyder [Lyn]   



After inking the sky in..added pearls for snow...plenty of glitter...



and a red ribbon with LOTV sentiment.

There we are..my snowmen are all done...except for the ordered ones, and a wedding card with box ,and a display board, and...and...and...thank goodness I have it all written down...

Off to work...Thursday.. cleaning day with my lady...but at least the sun is shinning after yesterday...washing can go outside.

Thanks everyone for all your fabulous comments...did you see I won a digi from Sugar nellie yesterday, whoo hoo.!!...from their blog hop on Saturday.....

Boys are here now,both talking at once....love and leave you...see you tomorrow...

Luv CHRISSYxx

I think these things happen to you in life because you have a wonderful 'Erma Bombeck-ish' way of relaying life to the readers.
It's hilarious the way you make light of a self-draining waterbed and a flooding basement and then oh so casually move into a beautiful card.
You're an inspiration. You should consider being a life coach!! :)
Love your card and that little bird with it's own stocking...SO stinkin' cute!
Well, I'm off to floss my teeth with my card now...
Ciao for now.
Hugs,
Lisa xx
