Christmas Fairy Holly


Absolutely love this Fairy Holly from Mo Manning I also coloured her in my fave coloured of red and blue and then discovered I didn't have any papers to match. Must stop doing that one reason it cost me to go on the Nitwits site to find something suitable to download and you can't just buy one set now can you.
I maybe nit picking but the green in the papers and her wings don't really match but this was the closes I could find that I liked.
But I do think I may have discovered a new border to replace the deep edge doily punch and it a die from MFT called Crochet Border, I think I love it more than the punch so be prepare to see it often.
 But I did use the Martha Stewart Holly punch and an awful lot of glamour dust, I also coloured the snowglobe with some pens I had handy but it didn't like the glossy accents so must remember not to use them again when using it the accents.
Didn't get to the Supermarket we decided to use the my Mobility Scooter thats been hold up in the shed cos the batteries need replacing which my clever husband changed himself and cost us half the price we had been quoted. So it needed a good work out so we took it round Stoke Park to see how much damaged Guilfest and the Torch Relay had been done. It may have taken out half of the Park but what an amazing job the staff had done to restore it and now its just a case of waiting for grass seed to grow.
This week its a case of head down and make loads of cards well enough for a couple of weeks so although I maybe not commenting much this week I still shall be visiting can't go by with out getting my blog fix.

  42. Great card, Debby. I have this gorgeous image ready to go... I got her last year and decided to wait to use her as I was pounding through my Christmas cards and wanted to do her credit, she's so sweet! I love that die, I like how you use them to back up your circular images, I'll have to give it a go myself. I think your papers go fine, but if you want to change the tone of them it's easy to do in Photoshop (just go to Layers, Hue/Saturation and play with the settings), I don't know how it's done in other graphics programmes but I'm sure it would be just as straightforward.
