MIM and Skate Board Josh

Hello Everyone.......oohhh..it is chilly here this morning...no frost, but  definitely chilly....BUT!



my feet are warm...finally went shopping..two pair for $12....just had to get a size smaller as they stretch so quickly and get sloppy...very cosy.

SO!!...Monday morning, warm feet, chilly air..and time for another MAKE IT MONDAY 

This week we are being sponsored by the lovely, talented Kerry of Ladybug Crafts Ink!

http://www.ladybugcraftsink.co.uk



Kerry is giving away a £10 voucher to the lucky random winner to spend in store!

Now, I was so lucky to win an image from their new collection that was being show cased recently, so here is my card for this week..... 'Skateboard Josh'  .....


He is fabulous for the teen cards, especially boy cards....coloured with pencils, matted onto black card and kraft...distressed..and papers from my 'Country Basics' pad.



He is such a cool dude...added a bit of grey copic to the steps...



I was assurred by my 'Son' that the word 'RAD' was very cool....in his day I presume...and used chipboard letters for that....a giant chipboard button, tied with brown twine...done.

For my pick from last week I went for this beauty from #229  Tracey


Look at the centre of the flowers...fabulous..exceptional colouring.

Thats it..all done..the recycling truck is outside, waking up the birds and upsetting my dog 'Harry'..that means the boys will be here soon and time to get ready for work...have some new clients this week...new permanents...or as permanent as they get in this line of work....already had a phone call from the office to say, that one of the ladies remembers I rang... but cant remember why!! Oh Joy!!

Have a fantastic week...

Luv CHRISSYxx

lol... Hi Chrissy, I love the warm looking slippers. Too cute. Makes me want to grab something warm to drink and snuggle on the couch with a good book. Your card is just fantastic. I love the way you colored him and I don't know about 'Rad', but it sounds good to me. lol... Have a great Monday my friend. Hugs, Lisa

My feet are jealous. Those look like the softest and warmest little clouds. Your rad card is great Chrissy. I love the letters cut out that way and your POTW is one my many favorites. She did an excellent job with that image for her challenge. :)
