FOUR OF FIFTY AND A CHILLY SATURDAY


Hello everyone...Yes, I must say that the temp has dropped as Autumn is starting to turn into Winter...not really freezing but you sure do notice the wind from the south...

I haven't left yet to go to my friend in Christchurch..[down south...getting closer to the chill]...not flying out until Wednesday morning...my kids bought me the tickets for my birthday and flying down on that day..

But onto today...and card Four of Fifty...



A lovely Swan stamp from" Firecrackers designs"...coloured lightly with copics and the water has glossy accents on it..[ 7, 8, and 9.. I have also used this image and they will pop up all together...]



 

Some lace and pearl trim and I used scraps of paper for this one as the pile in my basket was growing...





A few pretty flowers and parts of the swan was made 3D..

Sorry the photos look a bit washed out..must have been a cloudy day or a lousy photographer.. the 3 of them are different colours..

Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you also for your fabulous comments on my Digital Delights story on Thursday..can't wait for next week either and I wont even be here..

Luv CHRISSYxx
