MY ACHING BACK!!!



Hello Everyone....

Ooo...my aching back....but the flaxes are chopped down, the snails are all squished, the van loaded up and off to the tip...so I'm done!!...the painter comes tomorrow to my sons house to start the water blasting and then we will see a transformation as his house gets a long awaited face lift with fresh paint...

This is card number two I made yesterday, and this one is for Simon says Stamp  [Use Arrows]...and Here comes the Boys   [Lots of layers] and KKKK  [lots of layers] and
Joanna Sheen Challenge  [lots of layers]..


Image is from Kenny K - Airbourne  ....

The fabulous papers are Rosies Studio "Journey"...and the sentiment arrow stamp from Kaiser Craft "Friends"...



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



And the side view...decorated inside to match...

Off for a long soak in the tub to unstiffen these old muscles...give me a hoover and a toilet brush anyday...lol...glad to get back to normal work tomorrow..

Thanks for stopping by, will see you tomorrow...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi, Chrissy! It's so great to see one of your awesome cards in our challenge!! As you know, I'm a big fan of your crafty work. I love what you have done with "Airborne"! I just made a birthday card for my grandson with that image, though his birthday isn't until May. LOL! I just love coloring Kenny's digis. Good luck in the draw, girl, and thanks so much for your recent visits to my blog! I always love hearing from you.
