Spots everywhere

Hello everyone,

Today is the anniversary of my husbands parting...4 years ago today, he died in my arms after a long hard illness....he battled for 5 years when given 3 months to live, he defied all the odds...astounded the medical profession, and never complained...RIP Dave..oxox

And on a happier note, today is my daughters Birthday...my baby girl...over the hill I tell her..lol..and we will be partying tomorrow night as we both have the day off from work, couldn't have worked out better.

I have already shared the card I'm giving her so have this little cutie that I made last night...
Layers and spots.....



Cute little freebie chicken from Anji  with his little boots and hat...



Coloured with pencils and added glossy accents to the rain drops...



Papers are from Doodlebugs "swiss dot blue jean boutique'

The ribbon and brads, and one of the little hearts all have spots, and all different colours, but all go together.

Entering in a challenge at Divas by design  [spots and stripes and Simon says [anything goes]


So there is my chicken for today.....another exciting day at work about to start..cant wait.[said in a sarcastic voice]...Boys will be here shortly and we will watch cartoon network for a wee while, then on the road...yay!!....it is Friday morning for me and  I finish early...

See you later tonight...and big things are going to happen...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy. I know I how told you before, but you truly are a sweetheart and 1 in a million. I am sorry to hear about your Husband. It is amazing what people can do even when all is against them. I am sending you all my hugs for both you and your baby on this day. Happy Birthday to your baby as well. I hope that you both have a splendid day with each other tomorrow. I love this card that you made for her. It is just too cute with those boots. lol.. I truly love it. Thanks so much for your lovely comments yesterday. I really love talking to you and hearing about your days. I find that even though I am somewhat at a lost at times with all this internet and high tech gadgets I am still very greatfull to be alive in a time when I can talk to someone that lives so very far from me. When you think just 20 years ago you and I would never even have known the other existed. lol.. Anyway my friend, I hope that today and tomorrow are bright and shinny for you and your family. Hugs, Lisa
