I MADE Something At Last!!

Well hellloooooooo folks!!

How are you all keeping this fine and sunny day? (for a change, lol)

I thought I would pop by and show you what I have created. Just for a change I used a nice image and made a not-so-dark card front using my Snow Cuddles image.

I really enjoyed making this one, although in the end it took over a month to get done!! 'A Month??!!' I hear you gasp - yes folks, I AM that slack! I had the image all coloured up, scanned in, and printed out along with the dp's off my compy, BUT it sat there for weeks gathering dust as I lost the 'ooomph' to get on with it.

However, on Tuesday I got off my butt and made the thing, and in the end I had fun.

Like I said previously, DP's are off the compy and coloured to match the cardstock and her cloak. The frame is a lovely new spellbinders die that I bought a month or so ago. The flower is made with punches, and I added inky edges and stickles to the petals, and a big yellow gem for the centre. The central ribbon is from my stash, the big bow is handtied and is from an xmas ornament that I won't ever use, so it's kind of recycled! Corner gems from the stash, as are the wee gems I put in the snowflakes.

So there you have it folks!
Hope you like it after the length of time it took me to make! lol

I'll leave you with a different angle shot:
