NON TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS COLOURS



Hello Everyone..
I'm not whinging today..moving around and doing stuff...the sun is shinning and going to have a drive in the car as I'm ready,so off to see my Dad and Stepmother [just around the corner really]...but too far to walk as the fat in my back wiggles and with no bra on I can feel my stitches pulling..lol.

Too much information?...probably.

I have a Christmas card to share today using untraditional colours...and who better to pull that off...no other than BARRY...



There he is all purple and cute...I made this before surgery too and was just waiting for the right challenge.



Barry coloured with Faber Castell pencils...lashings of snow and glittered trim...

The snow is from "Sullivans"...comes in long tubes and so many different textured snow and glitter...so mixing and matching is always fun..but not getting it out of the carpet though where a lot of mind ends up..



The papers are  Rosies Studio 'Basics Brights"...a magnolia snowflake or two and the ribbon from my stash..

The sentiment stamp from Kaisercraft...and I made a tag and tied it onto the ribbon.

Challenges to enter....

Merry Monday  [untraditional Colours]

Crafty Hazelnuts christmas challenge extra  [anything goes as long as it is Christmas]

So there we go...no moaning or growling and have decided I quite like being at home..well, today I do..
See you tomorrow and thanks so  much for stopping by..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Fab card Chrissy! Love the colour, so vibrant and cheerful! Brilliant colouring as always and the snow looks amazing (on the card anyway, probably not so good on the carpet!)
You sound better today! Hope your stitches heal quickly so you can be properly attired:)!!! Enjoy your time off work, it'll soon be time to go back!

Dadgum girl, I turn around for a minute and you post a zillion things AND throw in a surgery in between. I got your message yesterday and had a huge "HUH?" I knew instantly I'd missed something vital. I am just so happy to hear that you are not in terrible pain and the benefits are that you are enjoying your time off and at home seeing family too. Your cards have me in stitches with all your adorable over the top 3D animated aspects you always include. That little turtle on the rock is precious!!!
It's a shame we don't live closer, I'd love to craft with you on your time off.
Big hugs to you Chrissy and I hope you're doing okay.
Lisa xx
