Ladybugs and MIM

Hello Everyone.....Hope your weekend was just as best as it could be...mine was.

I did end up taking one G/son to rugby as Dad had the other one, both had to be at their sport parks at the same time, so old muggins volunteered...but, WOW!! that litle fellow played well, I lost my mind, and screamed out... RUN,TYLA,RUN,...was like the soundtrack out of Forrest Gump...he picked up that ball, and ran from one end of the park..all the way to the other end..only to loose steam and got tackled, his support was not there, they couldn't keep up... and lost the ball..awww.he was doing so well, but so much praise was there for him, and you could see the pride in his eyes...my Champion.

Well, onto to Monday...a blustery day, but the rain that was predicted never came all weekend, and still just threatening....so lets party with....MAKE IT MONDAY    


This week we are being sponsored by the fun and funky
Digi My World!





They are offering the lucky random winner a $10 gift voucher to spend in store - how fab is that?!

For my card this week I was lucky to get this little cutie patootie to play with...




This is "My Little Ladybug"  awww...so sweet.

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and a few copics...found some scrim netting ribbon [covered all the bases]...spotty ribbon and papers from my scrap box...



Used a new pencil, not from my set, for her hair, and not all that impressed, a bit dull...too ash.


A side view...

Lots of tiny butterflies and a ladybug pin...

For my pick from last week, is a beautiful card.. shared with us by MANDERLY 


A beautifully coloured painting...reminded me of what I used to do, with stamps and inks...

Thanks for sharing with us Manderly...gorgeous colouring...

So thats me done for a new week at MAKE IT MONDAY ...try to pop over to the main blog and check out my teamies gorgeous creations...going to be a great week...

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your week...will see you tomorrow... 

Luv CHRISSYxx

LOL...Phew, I panicked for a minute when I saw this pop up. I thought blogger messed me up again.
What a fantastic story about your rugby champion. I bet he was stellar. Too bad the team couldn't keep up with their star player.
Chrissy your card has such beauty and flair and always the wonderful shiny bits that I love. Your POTW can put me in a trance, it's so lovely to stare at.
Hope you have a great week...
Hugs,
Lisa xx

Manderly said...

Oh my! Thank you so very much for picking me as your POTW!!! I just had to read through your comments to see if anyone said anything, and others liked it! I am so honored! Thank you, Chrissy, and thank you Chrissy fans!

Alright, away from selfish me and on to a true artist...you and your card! This card is exactly why I love your creations! You have that something extra that creates such beauty and causes others to feel good inside when they look. Would never know she has flat ash blond hair if you didn't pick it out! But its not flat and either is the card...beautiful coloring and the embellishments are perfect! Gooo, Tyla! Next week you'll get em'!
