Tis' Friday

Hello Everyone,

Tis' Friday...yay...been a hard week...one more day with a rock tied round my ankle and then I'm free for two whole days....

Went to my 'young mans' yesterday...cleaned his doors and frames,and up in the stair well....talk about spider webs...there is only so much time you are given to do these jobs, and it is good to get all these other chores done, so we are nearly there...will make my life easier when it is all finished and I can go in and do a regular normal clean...he's so lovely though and gave me some Baileys chocolates...I must have had such a look on my face, he started shaking his hands and saying...no,,no,,not like that, no strings attached....... you're too old!!.....charmed I'm sure...but I knew what he mean't...I think..lol..

Onto a card to share with you, another one sitting waiting but knew it was there as I made it for a DT card, but used another one, so this was just waiting for a challenge and one at Cute card Thursday  popped up...flower power..



Sweet image from Meljen designs...coloured with pencils.



Grass has a few copics in there and the flowers...


Side view...made the flowers myself, the butterfly from Vicky...and buttons from Marianne.



and my handmade flowers,made with corrugated card, MS leaves...

I really dont want to tell how long this post took.....but I'm going to...40 mins..for goodness sake...I found the photos last night, was all organised this morning...and lost the photos...I could not remember what they were labelled under....[deep exasperated sigh....] but got there in the end...

Have an afternoon tea party at school today for my yougest G/son...he does not know that I'm going....he doesn't know his Mum has taken the afternoon off to be there too, so it should be a lovely day for all...

Thanks for stopping by, love to hear from you, see you over the weekend....

Luv CHRISSYxx

Don't break your neck to read your comments...we need your talent and talented you are! I should be doing 4 or 5 to you, have been behind because I didn't turn on my computer for 2 days but I see that you are your "old" self (lol about chocolates and your young man!) and creating such beautiful cards. I love the fairy-so fancy-but I love your lower key cards also, like the Teddy Bear. You are just one talented lady! So look forward everyday to see what you have done. The Tea sounds like a lovely time. Let us know and the look on your g-son's face when he saw you and Mum!

Hi Chrissy.
I hope you had a great time at your Grandson's. I am sure he was super pleased for both you and his mom to be there. My kids still love it when we surprise them like that. lol... I really love your card. Great flowers. I had a gal from work give me all her corigated paper that she gets everyday when she buys a coffee. I am so going to give some flowers with it a try this weekend. Jerry wants to know if you live near the water spout that we are hearing about over there. I know you were sweet enough and told us before were you are, but I am such a geographicly impaired person I got my poor hubby comfused and he knows. lol... Have a great weekend. Enjoy your candies. :O) Too cute! Hugs, Lisa
