Hello everyone...

Finally made it back on my blog..seems like forever, but I've been so busy with extra clients.

I had a bully here the other night and the dog was doing his job with a deep throat growl at the fence  and this turkey took it badly and ripped a paling off my fence and hit poor Harry with it...nails and all...WELL!!!...did I see red or did I see red...he got such an ear blasting from me and it left me all shaky and the police and they were here in minutes..but never found him and he came back at 3 in the morning and finished ripping my fence to bits...what a jerk.
[ Harry was okay and got a cuddle from me]

So onto card making...have a Vintage Christmas card to share using a lovely image from the "Graphics Fairy"..made this quite awhile ago..I was running out of ink and it came out a funny colour but I quite liked it.

A lovely little girl strolling through the snow..all wrapped up nice and warm..

A close up of the image...

The bow with a bird embellishment..

I never took any notice when shopping one day and nearly choked when I saw the price of these bird buttons when I got home and wondered where all my money went...just got loose in the craft aisle..

A side view showing the gorgeous lace inside as well as outside..the mesh dotted in and around the beautiful flowers from "I am Roses" and my memory box die "Donnington Tendril"

Oh Chrissy what a horrible person it's just disgusting how some people behave makes you ashamed to belong to the same race sometimes. Hope you and Harry are ok and the fence can be repaired. Your card is gorgeous what a sweet image and I was thinking how lovely the button was, no wonder if it cost so much! Have a fab time with your Grandsons tonight hope yup got some extra supplies of chocolate in! Susan x

Sue said...

So sorry to hear about what happened Chrissy. I hope you and Harry are okay now, I just don't understand why some people have to act in such a way.
Your card is stunning. I love the vintage image and your detailing is all so beautiful.
Take care, hugs Sue xx

Too many jerks around Chrissy, I thought things settled down your way...looks like they just have to come back as it must make them feel better...what goes around comes around as long as you and Harry are okay...
Gorgeous card however and love that you could still have time to create.xx

So sorry to hear you've had some prat think they're above the law (and common decency!). Hope you're ok. Love your card sweetie. Take care.

Lorraine said...

That's awful! At least you and Harry are OK...a fence can be mended!

Kat W said...

Oh no, what a horrible thing to happen with your fence but I am just so glad that you and Harry are ok.
I'm surprised you have any chocolate left in the house after that...I think I'd have eaten it all to calm down!

Your card is the absolute opposite of all that violence, with that beautiful serene image and lovely natural colours - just gorgeous :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

chrissy xx said...

Awful! What a thing to happen to you both and what a jerk to come back in the middle of the night. Hope you are okay Chrissy. So glad you have Harry.
A BEAUftiful card...So Vintage and so pretty..I just knew that button woul be expensive! You can tell..
Hubby hides Chocolate from Freya..but, she knows were he keeps it lol x

Chris said...

What a horrible experience for you and poor Harry, you were very brave to 'see off' this nasty individual...hope the police soon catch up with him, it's bad enough destroying someone's property..but attacking your dog is unforgiveable.
On a more pleasant note...your card is a stunner! Such a sweet and lovely image, the design and embellishments are so beautiful! Love that (expensive!) Bird button!

Sarah said...

It wouldn't be appropriate to write what I actually think about your visitor Chrissy but it sounds like you gave him an ear bashing...good girl!! Hope you and Harry are none the worse for your ordeal. Love your gorgeous card xx

Chrissy, your "funny" color came out beautiful. Very elegant card. Thanks for joining the Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge this month.

Pia S said...

Is this gorgeous or what! I think it's a fantastic Christmas design, quite different in style with all those beautiful flowers, but I absolutely love it!

Whisper said...

Oooo what a classy Xmas card with a fabby layout too.

Oooo what an A**hole and i bet you and Harry were really shaken up - Alan say's you need to make friends with some Rugby players (and i'm sure they will be easy to find in New Zealand), Luv Sam x
