Christmas Wishes


Brilliant craft fair yesterday, the most I have sold for a while and lots of money raised for cystic fibrosis too. Managed a little blogging when I got home but apologies if I haven't returned your visit.

This is a great image for practicing hair colouring and I do love colouring hair. Always room for improvement but pretty pleased with the way this turned out. I was in the mood for playing around and spent ages making this card.
Image - Simply Sassy from Sugar Nellie (special edition)
Medium - Copics
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Dies - Marianne Designs. Spellbinders floral oval
Other - shabby white frantage, Viva Decor pearl pen, pearls and bow from stash
