Hello Everyone..
Just popped in to share another CAS is about all I can muster after work these days..

I have a new client..a young Mum with FIVE kids all under 7 and at home, as she home schools.
Should be a law against
My duties are bathrooms...beds..toilets...floors..FLOORS!!...I haven't seen any floors yet.

One of the beds was wobbly and I thought.. okay..lets fix I went to have a look and there was enough clothes and toys to fill a salvation army bin..the other 4 beds the same.[deep sigh]..funny how you get to see how other people live.

Now why are we here?,...Cas card..that's what it was..
Here we go..

Lenny...who could pass by Lenny all decked out in his Christmas reds and lime green bauble.

Kaisercraft sentiment and glitter..

Lenny was coloured with Faber Castell pencils but his suit with copic R27 and the bauble with YG03.....trimmed with glitter..

Not much else to say about a CAS card really..only that I have made 20 of them ready for Christmas..different images at times and had a lot of fun doing it.

Entering these challenges...

Without Words   [getting prepared for Christmas]

Crafty hazelnuts Christmas challenge #201 [flat enough to post]

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Extra  [Anything goes as long as it is Christmas]

There we go...mid afternoon here on Wednesday and will schedule this card...just in case I nod off ..

Small rack of lamb for tea tonight and then the usual chocolate fix..

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

My goodness that's a lot of children, deserves a medal! I'm finding 2 dogs and a baby hard lol!! Love your CAS card Chrissy though I must admit I got a shock when I saw a CAS card on your blog!! Susan x

Sarah said...

You do make me chuckle Chrissy, I was wondering whether you meant there should be a law against having five kids or home schooling!! Anyway, LOVE the CAS Lenny and his sparkly bauble!! xx

I helped someone quite like that too and it was an eye opener. She home schooled as well. The dad taught them all about car engine repairs right in the dining room, on the carpet....awesome!! So not...
Lamb sounds yummy. Better than leftover pizza I had. Your CAS card made me smile. It just gives all your attention to that adorable little bear I love it.
hugs to you Chrissy.

Loving Lenny in his Xmas outfit. Colouring brilliant as always. I don't know how people live in such chaos! Makes me feel a bit better when I spot a bit of dust! Enjoy you choccy bar. Very jealous, as I have put myself on a strict diet for a few weeks. Hugs, Carol S.xx
