Windy windy blow poof...

Hello Everyone,

Talking about WIND...we had a wild westerly night last night....Trees down, plants ripped from their roots right out of the ground, it came so suddenly. Rubbish bins, the big 40gallon drums bins, were sliding down the drive, the windows....well...it even scared me...not to mention Harry...my flat is windows everywhere and they were moving..I tell you, it was rough.
Poor Harry, paced around, ears down, kept getting under the computer desk....and I wasn't even on the computer....it went all night till about 3am...still blowing now but not howling..will be interesting to see what damage has happened around town.
I do know that when the winds hit down south, a tree fell and landed on a car and killed 2 people....and that what was going through my mind last night.......Our road...every second or third property has these enormous trees out on the council verge, and I was watching them go to town, at least they are not close to me, and if they went they would have gone away from me..phew...

Anyway, we survived the night, and I'm all prepared for these grandchildren to arrive...work first....doing 'my ladys' hair for her today....then playtime with the kids...should be fun.

have a card to share today...and it is Saturday morning here, and I never post on a Saturday, but this one was easy for me, and made for a challenge at Creative inspirations     



Not very good photos, the colour is off as I took the photos on top of my stove with the range hood light on, as I finished it at 11pm last night, and forgot we get the sun really early, but with the wind would'nt be able to photgraph outside at the moment anyway...



Coloured with copics this time, added glitter to her hat coat.For this challenge you had 3 colours to use...blue..grey..white...

No DP's just embossed the grey cardstock with the snowflakes in silver, and around the image, glittered the dog as well...and added blue and white flowers across the top, and clear liquid glue for the ice..
Changed the blue tones with the royal blue ribbon with silver thread running through..and some blue pearls.

The white roses are organza and satin ribbon,and you cant see here, but they have tiny white seed pearls glued on.....I bought them $2 bunch.

Thats me done for today....off out to check for damage and find my rubbish bin...

Welcome to my new follower, thank you so much for joining me...and thankyou to everyone for your fabulous comments you leave me....

Luv CHRISSYxx


PS...forgot to colour her mittens...duh!!!
