BURGLARS BEWARE


HARRY IS ON PATROL.....




Hello Everyone..

Scary stuff happened yesterday....went to my daughters after work to watch the boys after school and as soon as I reached the end of the drive I knew something was wrong...just those little tell tale signs..gate slightly open...another gate to keep the dog out off the front lawn was down...and then around the back, the laundry window wrenched open...and YEP!!... BURGLED..all the boys ipods,psp's[ and that's all the names I can think of]...but there was lots of stuff taken..Marie's jewelry...booze...cameras...laptop..all sorts of stuff that you can pop into backpacks and scoot off...mongrels..but the good news is...the idiots put it on Facebook in an auction site...and guess who enquitred about buying it all...my SIL...who is a prison officer...and around he went with the cops for back up and the thief was a 13 yr old girl..for gosh sakes...but they got a few things back...not sure what happened to the rest of it....time will tell...left me shaky that is for sure...


Anyway, I'm steady now and ready to share a card I made using this gorgeous image from MARIKA at WHIMSEY STAMPS..she was the Friday Freebie and if you missed her you can get her from HERE  ...

This is the beautiful SUMMER ...



Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and liquid pearls on her necklace..



Close up....with glossy accents on her glasses that you can't see...but it is there.



Fabulous papers MME "A Mothers Love" ...and a borrowed starfish from my daughter bathroom...and a stamped sentiment from Ladybug crafts ink.

Entering these challenges....

Wow Chrissy that is frightening that a 13 year old girl is doing things like that! I can remember being that age and the worse thing I did was fish in a Private Pond!! You do wonder where everything is headed don't you!

Anyway your card is gorgeous Chrissy wish I looked like that in a bikini!!! Susan xx

Kat W said...

So sorry to hear about your horrible experience but happy that you have some stuff back at least - fingers crossed for the rest later.

Love your pretty summery card - the circle with eyelets and twine is so cute!

Hugs, Kat xx

Oh my word Chrissy! So glad that everyone is OK most of all and what a scary thing to have happen! I couldn't imagine it!

Such an adorable creation my friend! Love the twine woven through the panel for a "sea side" theme...lovely colors too! :)

Danni said...

Very scary stuff! Glad that they found her though! Sad that she was only 13..makes you wonder what went wrong for her to start so young!
Gorgeous card!!

Oh my goodness, that's terrible. It's crazy to think that a 13 year old girl could do such a thing. At least she was caught and some of the items have been recovered.

Your card is gorgeous. I love the image and beautiful colours.

Take care, hugs
Sue xx

It's rather tragic when a girl of that age starts her life like that - and all the sorrow and grief it gives others as well...
Nice card though. Nice touch of those added circles with twine and the little starfish. Great image too!

Very scary stuff Chrissy. I'm glad no one was hurt but it is an unsettling experience for sure.

sue w. said...

Hi Chrissy, what an awful thing to happen, I know just how it feels but my god a 13yr old, that's frightening. Pity the dog didn't bite her a..!!
Super card hun, love the layout and papers. Fab image.
Hugs Sue W.

Tracy said...

Oh how terrible! Sorry it happened at all but sure glad she was caught. A girl! huh
Your card is so much fun Chrissy. I love the eyelet/hemp stitched circle. It's a really cute embellishment. Wonderfully cheery and summery. Hugs!

Jenée said...

Chrissy, I am glad you were able to recover the items gone missing. My younger daughter's house was broken into a couple years back (same type things stolen), and sadly they were not able to recover any of it. The most disappointing was the jewelry because, despite compensation by insurance, some items could not be replaced. Glad no one was injured, though (in either cases).

I do like your little card. The image is delightful, and I really MUST hunt up my coloured pencils and have a go at them. It's been quite a while, but whenever I see the lovely work you do with yours, I get the hankering. Overall wonderful card!

OMGosh, this is scary. Can't believe the culprit was a 13 year old GIRL. Good grief. I sure hope she learned a valuable lesson and never do a dumb thing like that again. On to your card, it is lovely and I really like the colors your chose...so soft and pretty. Take good care.

Mary J said...

OMG, it must feel awful to know you've had a stranger in your home. I hope your daughter is ok and not shaken her too much.

Your card is so sassy and gorgeous! My husband was looking over my shoulder and loves the sexy lady!!

Oh, my goodness, Chrissy - how horrible. So glad you've got some stuff back - not the brightest of thieves - and I hope you get good news on the rest soon.

Lovely summery card to cheer things up though!

Planetsusie said...

Brilliant card Chrissy - I love the fact that you have used pencils for this, I really must have a go with pencils myself. Particularly like the embellishment with the twine through the holes (can't think for the life of me what they are called) lol!

As for the burglary and a 13 year old girl doing it - how awful for you all. I really hope your family get more things back and that they recover quickly.

Big hugs to you Sue Pxxx
