I tried to jazz up the cheeks using a more vibrant color but it ended up being a mess....still I thought I would show it to you. I used my markers and love the pumpkin orange with the raspberry. The hair is done with sienna brown. I am really pleased with it all except the cheeks...bit tooooooo much.
Instead of a bow this time I decided to criss-cross the ribbons and use buttons to highlight the cross-over. I also used 5 small marble dots from Bella that I won in a blog candy. The tag is Magnolia....the Winter Christmas club set.
I had a lot of fun doing the inside. The ribbon is from Micheals...$.59 for 9 yards so it is hard to complain about. I love the fact that it is so narrow. I also used some magic mesh to embellish the corners as well as some doodles around the edges.
I made a tag out of scraps and added some mesh and doodles and a clip from my hodgepodge kit. The stamp is "of all possessions, a FRIEND is the MOST PRECIOUS"-herodotus from Michaels $ bin.
No school today because of a blizzard that dropped about 40 cm of snow on our area. The drifts are really high and the visibility is nil....its days like this that I missed...no school is simply not as exciting as when I was teaching.....Woe is me!
Guess I really have no excuse for not cooking a great supper so off I go to make like a caterer.
