Thanks

Hello everyone,

We ended up with a fine day yesterday...now this weatherman...I'm quite concerned that we pay him good money, and I'm so sure he just looks out the window...hums a bit, and decides..."yep!...looks like rain for Napier, and well, I'll throw in a weather warning for good measure"...because nothing happened..no wind, no rain, but the the big high over the country[which is supposed to be good] has bought early morning showers today....of course! thats it!...he's looking out the wrong window!!!


Have a sweet thank you card to share today...



LOTV teddy, holding his had written message of thanks...



Close up...coloured with pencils.



Close up of the handmade flower, which I could get very addicted to...hard on your thumbs, but rewarding..and WOC roses.



And a side view....fabulous papers from DCWV 'Linen closet" and ribbon from my stash.

Entering this cutie in a challenge at Creative inspirations   [With Thanks]



Do you know what this is???...of course you do... it is a Broccoli...but!!!  Do you know where it came from...........out of my garden, thats where...the first Broccoli that I have grown..EVER!!

So I took a photo of the nasty stuff, but I will eat it, as it is good for me...but only in a chicken stir fry...

Thats me done for today...off to clean and hang out washing, and the sun just peeped out, that could be a good sign....

Thanks for popping in to say hi! and all the lovely comments you leave...will see you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx

My gosh, what a pretty card. I'm crazy over the textures and designs, all so different and yet perfect together. All wrapped up with that very impressive bow! Your flower is just tremendous too Chrissy. Love everything about this beautiful thank you card. :)
p.s. Most beautifully displayed broccoli I believe I've ever seen and as for the weather man. I can be right 50% of the time...can I have that job?
hugs!
