If you follow me on FB, either on my personal profile or my page at Cartolinas from Lou Mac you will know that I have evetnually found out the results of my Foundation Embalming exam!!
I was over the moon when my tutor rang me yesterday. I almost swore down the phone I was that excited, but I contained myself. Only just! ;) Heh.
So after finding out that fantastic news, sorting out my car insurance (which I was dreading due to the three points I picked up in June), making a note of a bunch of Funeral Directors to ring around on Monday, working on updating my CV and tryna sort out the rest of my stash I want to sell on Facebook.. I thought I'd take a little time out while I eat last nights congratularory left over pizza and type up this post. Hah.
*takes a breath*
This was one of the first Saturated Canary digis I ever bought, and I never even got to colour her up last year - so I made it my mission to get her onto one of my first Christmas cards of the season this year.
I won. :)
HAPPY POST THIS, NO? :D
So I always struggle with purple, and decided to challenge myself to use it, as I wanted to use up some of my older papers from Cosmo Cricket - Mittens? (not 100% sure of that) collection. So purple and green it was!!
I decided to try a different combo for what I had hopes to be brunette hair. I believe the colour I added to my standard combo of Cinnamon, Cocoa, Walnut and Umber was Burnt Sienna. As you can see, it turned into more of a red head colour - but I still loves it!! You can see my old combo for brunette hair on her little shoes, which.. colored like that remind me of cinnamon swirls. Mmm!!
I used a sentiment from an Amy R set alongside some mittens from a SU! set. I die cut my sentiment panel using a larger circle die and then a scalloped circle die from Papertrey ink - the perfect size.
I love creating these larger (for me) cards these days, as I can use more embellishments, a larger sentiment, colour a bigger image, show off more papers. It's great. I added a bunch of embellishments from The Ribbon Girl, Petal Lu and Wild Orchid Crafts.
I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
- Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes #30
- Scrapping 4 Fun - Holidays or Christmas
- Aud Sentiments - Christmas Sentiments
Thank you for stopping by today and listen to me rabble on. I'll wrap it up now and get the rest of the stash I'm selling photographed and uploaded. xo
