HIGH WINDS AND A CHRISTMAS CARD
The weekend is over for me and Monday morning has arrived with very strong winds that started last night..
I've had a most productive crafty weekend..making boxes with windows in the lid and will show you when they stop blowing away and I am able to take photos outside..
For now I have a Christmas card to share, even though it all went wrong, it worked out in the end in a different way.
This wee chap is "Manty" by Mo Manning...I think he is fabulous and have used him several times for Christmas cards.
Manty is coloured with Faber Castell pencils....his shorts,shoes and wings with copics.
The sentiment is gold embossed and from Kaisercraft..sparkly glitter on his headband and wings.
Now those balls on the side weren't supposed to be like that..I was trying to separate the sprig that they were on and they just popped off and rolled all over the place...TWICE..so they were then glued on separately and I gave up on using the sprig.
Well, they certainly add dimension and thank goodness this is a handout card not going through the post.
Challenges I would like to enter...
Craftyhazelnuts extra [anything goes as long as it is Christmas]
Emerald Faeries [Christmas Non traditional colours ]
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas 201 [Christmas]
That's me done...off to ready for work and feeling a lot better thank you.
Thank so very much for all your kind words and well wishes..they worked.
See you tomorrow..
