Make it Monday and a Penguin



Hello Everyone....

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend... I sure did, busy with supervising the building of the new fence, or the finishing of it, visiting 'My Lady' 3 times a day...that is always a mission..and we had Soccer, end of the year presentations on Sunday afternoon, so there was not time for anything else this weekend, so I am so glad this card was done a couple of weeks ago, as it was my G/sons Birthday card..he chose the image himself and nothing would change his mind....


This is a little freebie from Dustin Pike....

Coloured with copics and pencils...papers are 'Authentique "Endless and Fair Weather'..



The ice cubes were drowned in glossy accents and a touch of glitter for the snow.

Needless to say he loved his card, maybe the contents more than the card, but he always takes the time to read the verse inside and big thank yous...before the contents shoot into his wallet...

So there is my card for this week, and our sponsor is for this week is.....


                 Mandy is generously offering our winner a digi paper collection of their choice.

My pick this week is a really cute retro card from Jodi #30..



Fabulous card Jodi, loved the colours and image and great design, so eyecatching.

So there we have it another MAKE IT MONDAY LINKY PARTY IS OPEN 

Hope you will join in and share any paper craft you have, whether you made it last week, this week, or 2 years ago, pop it up and share it with everyone...

Onto a new week then, off to work, and time to listen to the same conversation over and over again..lol..our subject the last few days is her dead friend who used to sit on the kitchen bench in the winter as that was where the sun was..lol..

Have a great week, thanks for stopping by..

Luv CHRISSYxx

So glad you gave a side shot (on the porch railing...YEAH) of the ice cubes..that really showed off the bathing on the cubes. Your GS obviously has good taste and confident in your talent to deliver ;) I love that the penguins defrosting dinner!
As for your POTW...HAHAHAHAHA...I'm becoming more at ease with being 'vintage' now.
As for your lady, what a sweetheart both of you are. :) I remember being with my great grandmother when she asked me to pass the apple butter for her pa. Apparently we were having a lovely picnic on the top of a hillside. Even though we were actually sitting in her kitchen, it was a very special experience.
Hugs to you my friend,
Lisa xx
