For A Dad

Hi! everyone,

Dare I say this after my moaning all summer??????'s chilly today.
Sunny New Zealand has just found the first day of winter. Beautiful white frost this morning, but with  the ash from the volcano in Chile....well...we wont be seeing much sun today.Our skies, or where I thick with ash, dark and coooold.

Never mind, it is Friday 2.30pm...and I have finished for the day...My G/son still off school, fighting fevers, but his Dad is home with him today.The doctor is a moron, as far as I'm concerned, said there's nothing wrong with's his body's way of dealing with a cold.....he has not got a cold !!!

FOOL!! The childs temp reached 40 last night, should have been hospitalised.

Simmering down now...........onto a card.
This is for a challenge at Craft us Crazy

and the inside

Why do I have to fight with this cursor, stopping in the middle, so annoying.I have to drop all the way down here before I can write again.

Fabulous image a freebie from Dustin Pike, love these wee dragons. Coloured with pencils, and papers are from mme 'life of the party'.

Sentiment from PC, and the really cool ribbon is a cheap roll, purple/red checks.Just right for this card, and had the roll for ages.

Thats me done, have a few things to do this arvo, then I may have a wee

Welcome to my new follower, thankyou for coming,will pop over to say hello on the weekend.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments, it's lovely to sit here with a smile on my dial at the end of a long day, and read your messages.

Catch up over the weekend.

Another super card hun - ADORE the dragon and the sentiment is perfect for him - any bloke would love this a lot! Sorry the litte chap is still so unwell, keeping fingers crossed he picks up soon. Sorry I can't do much about the weather - we've gone from drought to occasional downpours and soooooo humid that my tail looks like I've stuck it in the tumble drier. Sxxxx
