PLAY TIME




Hello Everyone.....

Today is the day...daylight savings ENDS today for me here in NZ...finally..and I get an extra hour in bed in the morning...but of course I wont be in the bed, I will be on the PC...but it gives me that extra hour in the morning...so no rushing around.....the only problem is...'How do you make 'My Lady' understand...sheez..I left her a note to say I will be there at 9.30am....she will forget the time once we start chatting and then I can turn the clocks back..lol..

Had a play today and made this card for a challenge at Top Tip Tuesday [Girls and Boys come out to play]



Cute little image from Raising our Kids   called 'At Bat'...made the sentiment with kraft and stickers...



Coloured with pencils....but his shirt...hat...and trousers, are paper pieced.

Did some doodle lines around the image for a frame.....



and a few Memory Box trees and Marianne Creatables fence...paper from scrap box.

So there we go....now move over Lionel Richie....you are not the only one dancing on the ceiling...



Top 5 QKR Stampede 









Top 3 Simply Create too 





Whoo Hoo!!....Thanks Ladies....

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fantastic weekend..

Luv CHRISSYxx

I love the story about you changing the clocks in secret!!! Hahaha. Fab card too Chrissy. I love the doodling for the Top Tip Tuesday theme. Faux stitching is not natural for me and I normally do the real McCoy, so I need all the inspiration I can get!!!
