LIVE from a cold windy Napier New Zealand

Hello Everyone....well it seems like months since I have been on here, but only a week has past. and so glad to see that my scheduled cards went up, and thank you all so much for the lovely comments you left me, such a pleasure to sit and read them all....

My trip to Australia went really well, I only got lost 3 times and lost my passport in our tiny local airport...can you believe it!!..how stupid...I had taken it out as I knew we needed it at the check in, but slipped it back in my bag and it shot into a makeup purse and I just couldn't see it...luckily while I was sliding into a panic mode, my G/duaghter calmly waded through my messy bag and found it before my son threw me out the door..lol..

Went to the craft show on the Saturday, and I was in craft heaven...wow!!...so many stalls, and so many people, or should I say women...pushing and shoving, it was like the Bendon Bra sales...frightening for awhile...lol..but I soon learned to give a shove back, make use of my height, for reaching over heads, and this is what I managed to get in 1hour and 45 mins........


                                         WARNING PICTURE HEAVY..........but oh! so yummy..






There is another picture but it wont load just yet, so I will show you a card that I made just before I left for a challenge at Ready Teddy Go  and it is one for the boys.... 



Such a cute image from Spyder [Lyn]  called Archie  Archer...



A close up of image...coloured with pencils...


And the side view..

The papers are gift wrapping papers with a linen texture on them, the dragon fly cut from those papers...the spots and stripes from Crafters choice 'country basics'.

This has turned into a novel, so will let you go....off to play, will show a few more pictures when they come to hand, and where we stayed...paradise..

Great to be back...

Luv CHRISSYxx
