CLIENTS DONE!!!...OVERSEAS..GETTING THERE..



Hello everyone...

Phew, it is so hot today, and I swore I would never complain about the heat after a long coldish Winter..[ but I lied ]..

Look what I have accomplished after my first set went to sales when they shouldn't have...


haha!!...  no one will find these cards, I have hid them well, and hope I remember where I hid them before December 20th...

But I will share a card with you that I made for the youngish man I look after and have for a long time now..he is the nicest bloke ever..BUT..the most disorganised and grubby..lol..




So here is his very untraditional card as he loves white tigers and has them all over the house..pictures and stuffed toys, even his duvet..

I found the image on the net..printed him out just as he was but added white paint splatters for extra snow..isn't he gorgeous....so regal.

Added cheese cloth and corrugated cardboard box behind to give him plenty of dimension..stamped the sentiment and white embossed it...



See...yummy and thick and NOT going through the post..

Challenges to enter...

Always playing with paper  [Christmas cards----although mine is very untraditional]



Cards in Envy   [extra layers]

Crafty Boots  [spots or dots]

That's me done...off for my late tea tonight as it is  just too hot to eat..

Thanks so much for stopping by...see you tomorrow.

luv CHRISSYxx

Your white tiger card is amazing. They are such majestic creatures and I have had the good fortunate to see them up close several times!! I love the corrugated card you added for that extra touch!

You didn't think I would hold you to it did you? (not complaining) Once you get to the last layer of clothes that you can legally remove without getting arrested and you're still hot...that's when I start complaining. Heat is horrible. You still have the open invitation to come spend winter here and then you'll never sweat...LOL. Your cards are AMAZING!!!! Good grief you're on a roll. You achieve every genre of crafting with masterful techniques. You truly do wow me!!
hugs to you Chrissy,

Marilyn said...

This is beautiful and your friend is going to love, love, love it!
It's so odd to see someone talking about heat... it's getting so cold here. The first days of winter are such a corker and blah, there's not a single thing I like about it except for looking out the window at how pretty the snow is. But I don't want to go out in it... just look out the window.

Danielle Vincent said...

Wow gorgeous creation!! It's perfect for a young man - especially the one you described in your post. How nice of you to be so specific to his tastes! Thanks for joining us at My time to Craft!

Kat W said...

Wow, I love this amazingly beautiful and dimensional card...I think it will be loved by the recipient too!
Big hugs, Kat xx
