Something New

Hello Everyone,

I managed to get through my visit yesterday with 'My Lady' without too much drama..she has accepted we are in the New Year..1912....nooo..2012...well...for 2012 you would think we would be a bit more advanced..and so we went on...for 1/2 an hour...I left feeling I should have worn my Flash Gordon suit, maybe she would have been happier, hopefully in a better mood this morning...

At least the rest of the day was mine, and mine alone...and make cards I did...several...the mojo was in top gear and so many ideas floating around in the old grey matter..so here is number 1...



The elephant was a freebie from Beccy  and I printed the first one big,,,the babies small and fussy cut them out.[same elephant, just re-sized]



Coloured with pencils, sky with template and ink, and the last of my grass from Dora  and a tiny mushroom, that was attached to a peg and I ripped it off..



Close up of charm and brad, as I have made the card to be a New Baby Boy card...

Going to enter my card in a challenge at The squirrel and the fox   [something new]
and paper take weekly [anything - optional something new]
There you go, thats me done, have a full day at work today, holidays are over, and had a practise yesterday getting ready to go back to work.......I picked up a feather duster and had a flit in my craft area...totally exhausting, do not know how I will cope with a full day..lol..

Thanks for stopping by and all your lovely comments...see you tomorrow...

Luv CHRISSYxx

It must be a bit of mystery bag every day as to what sort of day you will have when you visit "your lady". Poor old thing, she must get very confused and frustrated (you too probably, lol, with the converations going round in circles.

Your card today is absolutely ADORABLE!! I love the little elephant family. You really do a great job with the sky too.

There are many animals that I just love, but elephants are probably in my top 2. This is WONDERFUL and I love that you staged them to hold tusk to tail...that's just adorable!
What a great day to fire up those synapsis JUST for YOU and craft the day away. Sounds perfect.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful card with us at The Squirrel & The Fox.
Good luck to you...
Hugs,
Lisa xxx
