Happiness be yours

Today is the 13th of December, Lucia Day.
Me and my fiancee have been together for 9 years today,
so he actually surpriced me with roses and a gift (Gilmore Girls on DVD).
Its not often he does stuff like this, so it was very nice. :)

So today I ditched the school work I really should have been doing,
and made this wall hangable card for my sister.
The images are a bit poor, put it could have been worse I think.
At least the colors are all right. ;)

I used papers from Maja Design,
a heart shaped doily, and I inked the edges of the papers
with Distress Ink, Walnut Stain. 

I colored Tilda with Distress Ink. Her clothes are a mixture
of Victorian Velvet and Walnut Stain.
For skin I use Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo and Aged Mahonagny,
and for the rest I used Pumice Stone and Black Soot.
I shaded with Wethered Wood and Black Soot.
The fur edges on her clothes are lined with Martha Stewart Flocking.

The Wings I got at Panduro. I originally was not planning this,
but I strumpled across them as I was searching for fitting
embellishments, and I just had to use them.
Maybe a bit much, but whatever. ;)

The flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I made some of the flowers smaller by removing a layer of them,
and I put some Snow Wrighter on them.
I love the sparkely snowflake, I dont know if you can tell,
but its made entirely out of rhinestones. It is from Ribbon Girl. 

The Lace and mesh is also from Ribbon Girl. 

I used Martha Stewart Snowflakes that I punched out,
and a Doohickey tag, some twine, pins and seem binding ribbon from WOC, 
and a big heart charm from Ribbon Girl. 

The sentiment is from Magnolia, and I added some little pearls.
I also used Snow Wrighter on the corners in the card,
and I used Chalkboard Glimmer Mist all over. You can rell if you look for it. ;)

Christmas Gifts

Hello all my sweet friends and visitors!
I have again neglected my blog, I have been preoccupied with school,
the stomach flu, school and school.
I have also been making a few Christmas gifts,
theese are what I wanted to show you quickly today.
I have an exam tomorrow, so I have to dive back into my
books right now. Being sick really made me fall behind on my schedule.
These are kleenex-covers that I am giving away for Christmas.
Both are made with Pion papers,
I used peals, Martha Stewart butterfly puncher,
and dies. I also used Star Dust Stickles. Very simple embellishments,
the papers are so lovely in themselfes and I didnt want people to think
they where unhygienic with to much flowers etc. 

I hope you all are having a lovely December. :)
