So pretty in pastel

Hello Everyone.

I had a night of witches and goblins, ghosts and monsters...then I had little boy who knocked on my door and asked me"got any lollies"....I said "yes, thanks"....he looked up at me totally unphased..and said "well, can I have some"....I replied " well, all depends, have you something to show me, can you do a trick, you have to earn them"...he stood there [no parent in sight]...and next minute he broke into a dance...which I presume was break dance or hip hop...you get the idea...and was amazing...on my drive way..spinning around..no music..just doing his thing..............well, he was given his lollies, and a lesson in manners....which was a 10 min lecture...but I think he understood the correct way to approach people by the time he left...lol...he would have been no more than 7yrs old..and no costume..BUT...[softy]

Onto my card.......



This beautiful image is a freebie from Michelle84  her free to colour drawings are just beautiful.



This one is from her 'Iris' collection.... hair and skin and flowers coloured with pencils, dress and shawl with copics.. c-o, and c-3...added glitter to her wings and crown....the lovely papers are Pinkpaislee - butterfly garden collection

I used that lovely die from Marianne Creatables again..cut in half for a frame.
Added a few pearls and a feather...I really love this card..

Going to enter her in a challenge at  Crafts 4 Eternity  [Magical-mystical]

Done...off to work I go...finish early today...then off to the school, get the boys and then to their place..I'm the cook tonight...roast chicken...yum yum...

Welcome to my new follower, thankyou so much for joining me...will see you all tomorrow...

Luv CHRISSYxx

This is gorgeous Chrissy, what a beautiful stamp and what beautiful soft colors, really love it ... it would have been so fun to see that young kid doing the dance, how sweet :)

I can only imagine what it would be like to be your neighbor. I'd be in stitches all the time! OMG I about wet myself reading your story...HAHAHA! Why didn't I think of that last night? Word would of spread pretty quickly from that poor kid, I'm sure.
Your card is a stunner, Chrissy. You're great at finding the most gorgeous images to color (free, even) and marrying them with stellar background papers. Love the extra bling of the feather.
Don't work too hard and I look forward to more laughs from your ever comical perspectives.
Hugs,
Lisa xx

She is so pretty and your coloring is awesome Chrissy. I was so hoping you'd win one of the die sets. Missed a few posts so had to scroll back to see what I'd missed and I have to tell you that birdie card is adorable and I love everything about it. The Autumn Stroll card reminds me of one of my gransons when he was small. Keep those creative juices flowing more of your wonderful cards. No way I got enough mojo or time to post everday but sure hope not to miss any of yours....LOL "Hugs"

Hi Chrissy, lol... I love that you taught your little visitor a thing or two. I am kind of that way when I am at work. If a customer walks up to my pharmacy counter and they are yaking on their cell phone I will step up to the side and act liking I am waiting. I had a young guy ask me if he was in the wrong line. I said in a very nice manner "No, I just didn't want to interrupt your conversation so I will wait until you are done. (enter my nicess smile). Boy did he get off his phone and appologize. Yes, I am very sarcastic and SOOOoo think it is rude to be on the phone and expect someone to wait on you. So with me getting off of my soapbox I will become once again the nice woman my parents raised me to be and tell you just how beautiful I think your card is. OMWord, I just love your coloring on this along with the frame and her wonderful wings. :O) Hope you had a great Nov. 1st. I still can't believe it is this late in the year already. Hugs, Lisa
