Tidings of Comfort and Joy

Hello all!!
I am pretty sure something/someone is toying with me!!
Have you ever had a peice of cardstock DISAPPEAR!!??!
And just as soon as you give up looking and settle
on a different peice of paper, put the finishing touches
on the project and the missing paper reappears!!?!?!
I had the rest of this slice of BG paper
fall from the sky tonight.
I searched and searched for it,
it had the hAnglar image stamped on it and I wanted to
mirror the little treat box I made a little while back
and the cardstock had, for all intensive purposes
VANISHED!!!


I guess I shall move on with this project,
enough "waffle" for tonight.
I settled on an alternate BG paper, which I rather like,
it looks good with her BG dress,
which I had to restamp on this itty bitty sliver
of leftover DP in the meantime..... stupid paper...


They are coloured with distress inks and trimmed in glitter.
They are surrounded with organza ribbon and poinsettias,
the poinsettias have been distressed, glimmer misted,
then edged with stickles and I've knotted a little charm on.
I've used last weeks
Midnight Madness Sketch
and I am late to join in, but I think I will
still tack it onto Mr. Linky over there.

Thanks for looking and have a great week!!
I hope you are getting some Christmas crafting time!!
Stephanne

This is so cute, Stephanne! I love the sparkle around the image, which is colored so beautifully! I usually drop an embellishment and once it hits my scrapbook room floor, it VANISHES too!

OMG, this is so cute! I'm in love with these little guys and girls. Love the DP you used and her dress must be a designer original! The way you highlighted them with glitter is awesome. Everything in my stamp room disappears at some time or another.

Stephanne, This card is beautiful. Such a cute image, I love the paper piecing and the colours & your colouring is just wonderful. Yes, I lose things in my craft room all the time, very frustrating, but always a lovely surprise when it turns up again. Wishing you & your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs Jodie from Oz
