Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Am I a beggar for punishment??
Am I just insane??
Do I love 'My Lady'........................yes, I do...and that is why I have taken on the task as her carer 7 nights a week as well as the mornings..I'm going to be pushed to the limits, but she was SOOO happy when I told her that her other carer was leaving and 'Shirley's Homecare' asked me to step in...she clapped her hands like a little girl..

I'm pushed for time this morning too, have been so busy with hush hush stuff...lol..that time has just slipped away...

Have a card to share for the challenge at Scrapbook Stamp Society   but I was a bit confused with the title of the challenge and bloghop combined on the same weekend and sort of made the image a strange colouring...never mind, it is what it is...



This image is "Little Girl" by artist Morgan Fitzsimons....usually a winter image, but I got confused and the challenge is "The Garden Patch"...but I read it as spring in the Garden, or something like that...and coloured her in spring colours..lol..



Close up of image...



Side view....

Coloured with pencils, added glitter to her [holly] flowers...my Cheery Lyn fence die, and flourish.
DP's are from Crate Paper 6x6 pad..."Portrait Collection"and Magnolia doo hickey border down the side.

Blogger is still being so silly my end...one day good, the next day I could kick him....cannot add anything on DT blogs at the moment, no tool there to click....

Have a special Thank you to Claire   for sending me, [as a special mention on her blog] this award.


Really appreciated it Claire, thankyou so much..

And a big welcome to 8 new followers, thank you so much for joining me..

And thanks to everyone for all your lovely comments..really love to read them all and appreciate them so much...

Must fly, cannot be late to 'My Lady'...she does stick to time..

Luv CHRISSYxx
