challenge #31

Another Kristine Werner colour challenge click on this link to see others submissions the colours for this weeks challenge are close to cocoa, elegant eggplant, pumpkin pie, so saffron and whisper white

This very naught little black hen jumped on the nest while my ginger chicken was in the yard doing her morning gymnatics unfortunatly who doing this has led to the whole clutch being lost as we where unable to tell which where which and it led to some eggs becoming cold which is not good then two days before hatch day there was a big electrical storm which can do bad things to the inside of eggs something to do with atmospheric pressure so it is a real heart break for us all

daily challenge christmas bauble

this is a great little template that I down loaded off the internet it is great how many sites have them real red is such a christmas colour for me and a bit of dazzling diamonds and you are set for a fabulous time

Crichton's Card daily challenge

Crichton rang me very early in the morning to say that it was his girlfriends birthday the next day and he wanted to make her a card.... I am glad he rang the day before as it took him ages he was very precise in what he wanted and how he wanted it for her. by mistake i helped to trim one side edge........................................ I got a very stern word or two about his ability to do it thatnk you very much but any way the card was lovely complete with a little bling on the flower and a hand tied bow

daily challenge

Now to some this may not look like a christmas card but to me it does in that how many of us have been given in a christmas basket those orange and lemon jellied fruits I myself dont like them but many do I think I prefer them on a card razzle dazzle with heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds
