Monster mash!

Hello Everyone.......Do you remember my 'Young Man' I was given awhile back as a new client...and I walked in to his house and was astounded how anyone could live like that....well, I'm still going to him...but!....he is keeping his place so much better...he has mates around who comment on things....and he wont allow anyone to flick bottle tops around anymore, if they do, he makes them pick them up, or he does it himself before I go on a Thursday...

Well, last week, I went there, and walked in and he was beaming at me....I smiled back and said to myself, "look around girl, dont miss whatever he's happy about"....well, I could not help but  notice....he had put up new nets and drapes in the lounge and dinning room.....beautiful.....even if the drapes were the same colour that he already had, they were clean and fresh, made sooo much difference.

I have taught him well....my job is done.....

Have a cute card to share today...a freebie from Spyder [Lyn] 


Wicked isn't he...great monster, love him.

Papers from Basic Grey 'Life of the party' and the background papers are a printable download from 'Doodle Pantry' a birthday gift from Michelle - Pink Paper Paradise  thanks Michelle...



My monster is coloured with Faber Castell pencils...glossy accents on his nose and balloon, and glitter on his parcels.




A side view...fabulous chipboard balloons from my scrapbook box...had a rumage for a birthday badge and found these...inside decorated as well....and a chipboard no.4..

So there we go...this card is going to a little boy in hospital....his brother is a friend of my G/son..and the wee fellow will be spending his B/day in hospital, so made the card for his brother to give to him...

Pouring with rain this morning...started last night...so out come the hair straightners, have a long day ahead of me...

Going to enter a challenge at Penny's paper craft challenge  [Birthday]
Thanks so much for stopping by, and all the wonderful comments you leave...see you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Spyder said...

aw, what a great job you have! It must feel great to make a difference. I really feel a lot of the 'troubles' there is with the young today is the simple fact that no one praised the little things in their life, like a scribbled drawing as a child.

He's GREAT!! Love him! You know I'm going to have to 'borrow' him, don't you! I've had two coloured images of him on my desk for weeks and still haven't used them! Love those balloons and your papers are perfect!! (That's it! I've been trying to find the right papers!) I have changed the balloon a little bit, I thought it was a bit pointy! Haven;t loaded up this weeks freebie yet. 4Shared won't load it...going to have to use the email again I think! Have a great day.
