Chrysanthemum...

Good morning everyone are you all recovered from the cold snap them, I hope so, we are finally getting bitterly cold wind here, well I knew it would arrive sooner or later...thank you all so much for the lovely things you said about my image colouring yesterday and the two emails of the people asking me if it was a pre coloured image, I promise it wasn't a printed one I did colour it, I think it looked like that because I had dirty fingers and ended up having to cut it out and put it on with foam pads and that caused a shadow, I was so chuffed you all thought my colouring made it look like a photo though but if it was I would have said...we went out yesterday afternoon and it felt a little strange my Daughter picking my Dad and I up and driving down to Town, I don't know how I will get used to things like that, I'm used to my Dad picking me up and us going on our little jaunts to the Supermarket and out to have 'put the world right' coffee...it wont be long though I'm sure before hes nipping about in his little blue car again...we had a little mooch around town then while my gorgeous girl did a few more errands we went for coffee, the wind was so cold I felt my face had dropped off at one stage, I'm sure I had a candle dripping from my nose on a couple of occasions too lol...now that's attractive for a woman of a certain age isn't it but where the freezing wind is concerned who cares eh lol....right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Crafts and Me challenge, the theme this time is to use a New Image so anything you have that's brand new, I cant wait to see what you come up with...I used this stunning new Sara Burrier image called Chrysanthemum from Crafts and Me, I coloured her with distress inks and glittered her wings...I teamed her up with this gorgeous lush Fancy Pants 12x12 paper from their My Family collection called Sister, I cut out a couple of the flowers from it and raised them up at the edge, I finished with a lush rich coloured Satin Ribbon 25mm BURGUNDY from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and a dreams sentiment from my stash...the fab sketch is from the Totally Gorjuss challenge and I'm also entering it for the CES challenge and Ribbon Carousel challenge too...I'm going to have a crafting morning this morning then I'm off to the Doctors with my Dad to see about his liver function test...whatever your up to today I hope it isn't candle drip weather for you
