When you are hot you're hot!!



Hello Everyone...

Hope all is well in your part of the world....I'm only going to say this once...Phew I'm hot!!!....I dont do Summer very well...now if I was a butterfly, I could spread my wings and fly somewhere shady and cool, but for now I'm sitting in my craft space with the fan on trying to be calm and cool...[not working yet]

Today is Wednesday and time for a new challenge at FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAYS
and this time we want to see.... 'In with the New'....new house...baby...job...marriage etc...




Trying to find the right spot in the Summer for photographs is a bit tricky, but here is my Baby Fairy Buttercup  from Mo's Digital Pencil  ...

Coloured with pencils and copics and copic dots around the edge...


Close up of image with her glittery wings and flower....



And the side view....gorgeous papers are Pink Paislee and the netting tucked in the back was a little bag with  chocolates in it..a little Bee from Mo's too...and flowers from WOC...the sentiment is a clear set I've had forever...and bow from my stash.

So there we are...and after my break away I am looking forward to visiting you all, so brush the dust off those Fairy wings and lets link up to Flutter By Wednesday 

Thanks for stopping by, will see you around blogland...but have to make it snappy as I'm a tired girl today...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy,
Your post really made me smile...can't imagine being hot at this time of the year! The heating is on here in the U K! Think you should come over and then you would be cool :)
Love your summery card makes me think warmer weather is on its way.
Great top 5 with Barry featuring as the main star, love him too!

Happy New Year.

Hi Chrissy. I hope that found a cool place to rest in. I think your card is just adorable and I love how you always take pictures of your cards outside. It makes me feel like I get to see a little of your world each day. I think your coloring and your arangement of this card is just too cute. I have a friend who is expecting in about 6 more months, so I am always happy to see baby cards as I want to come up with something very special for her. :O) I hope you had a wonderful holiday. Get some rest. I am back to work today and I will confess to you that I am in a bit of a snit as I just don't want to leave Jerry and the M&Ms. It's not that I am lazy, I just love being home with my family. Oh well, I guess we need to eat and have a home so off to work I go. lol... Thanks for letting me vent and get myself out of my snit. That has by the way been my nickname from my Dad since I was a little kid. I guess it is more fitting than I ever knew. Hugs my friend, Lisa

You're struggling with photos due to too much sunlight and in my part of the world I struggle with the more or less lack of daylight:)
It's a really sweet card, love the detail of the bee!

This is totally adorable, Chrissy... I love the colours you've chosen - it's like she's wearing a gorgeous daffodil! Such a pretty card...

I hear you about the heat, although we're in the midst of such grim, gray wetness, that I even envy you that! Happy New Year!
