JUST SNEAKING ON TO SAY HI!....


Hello Everyone..

Gee..I'm having withdrawals sitting here with my hand up resting...driving me crazy..so thought it would not hurt just to sneak on here and say Hi!..and share a card I made on Wednesday night..just for fun.



I made a flowerpot card..

The flower pot was a freebie colouring page and it is a handy image to have..all I did was made it as big as it would go..hand cut it out using a Manila folder then inked it up with orange and brown inks...

Then made some smaller ones along the bottom.



Gave Lenny Bee from Stampfairy an airing...hovering over the top of the pot...





and sweet little Clementine too..



Added some Cheery Lyn vines and flowers sprigs from Memory box which were paper pieced to get the different coloured flowers...

The tiny flowers on the vines are flower beads.



Added a good luck sign as this has gone to a new gardener in the making..

Going to enter these challenges...

For Crafty Chicks  [Shaped card]

Stampavie and more  [Anything but square]

Crafty Catz   [Paper piecing - flowers and Clementines hat]

Thanks so much for stopping by and all the well wishes you leave..feeling much better but very dry in them mouth...and my right side has gone all stiff and very achy..I'm a lefty and must have been favouring my right side without realising it.

Never mind the finger does not throb anymore and the red lines have gone very pale pink..so the horse tablets must be working...

Off to rest up again..and I am being very good...it is difficult to sit still,but I'm doing it.

luv CHRISSYxx

Eek - just caught the hand update on the previous post, and I hope you've gone back to resting it now (well, you're probably asleep, so hopefully resting!)... It all sounds horrible - and not being able to craft or blog (?!) either...

Glorious card by the way - I adore the flower pot and your little gardeners, and brilliant use of the die-cuts swirling around and out of the top.

Hope the hand gets better very soon, one way or the other...
