Hi peeps first I want to thank you for your kind comments some have had me welling up I tell ya, they really do mean sooo much.
This is my 2nd project I made last night but things hadn't dried properly, the darn bow did not want to stay on but I won the battle in the end!!!!
This is for my Princess Natalie altho its also based around round 1 of the Sugar Nellie Competition.
Without any waffle here it is........
I know I have used the same image but when I first coloured these images yesterday I couldn't decide what to colour them with so I coloured both & I thought with the help of my family I will choose the best 1....yeah right my family loved them both. So thats why its the same image. I'm not even sure if you can enter more than once but if not they can disregard 1. I have not made this christmassy as its a keeper for in her room.
A close-up of Simply Sassy 'Fairytale'.....who is my fave I have to say....for now anyway lol.
This image is coloured with Promarkers except her hair which was coloured with Prisma pencils & blended with Sansador, I've used no ink on the hair. I have even given her a little earring in a heart shaped gem.
This is made the same as the 1 yesterday, with my Marianne die, I then heat embossed it with Heat It Up clear embossing powder....I did it twice on the front & once on the back the feel of it is lush, I also did the same to the Magnolia doo hickey flower underneath the mulberry 1. I added gems to her body cus she is a she lol & I trimmed down the feelers to added the gems thingy's (not sure of the name of them lol sorry). I will be making more of these I actually made another 1 with different embossing powder but it didnt look white so it may go on my next project along with the matching flower I made lol.
Now I dont if you have realised this is not a card, I didn't exactly make it clear did I oops....well its actually a box I made to Put Natalie's new DVDs in, will have to make a few more tho before crimbo lol, but it saves on wrapping lol. I didn't bother looking for a tutorial for this like I sometimes do instead I was in a crafty mood so made my own. I'm just putting finishing touches to my instructions & I've got to convert measurements cus I know everyone doesn't use the MS scoring board. It will be done in the next day or 2 tho. I have put in 1 of Natalie's fave old dvds, its 1 we always watch together I soooo enjoy it, its a girly thing with my daughter lol. I cant put crimbo prezzies on now can I not yet lol.
I am sooo sorry about the pics tonight I've had a real job of taking them for some reason.....but you get the idea dont you lol. These will also fit Xbox 360 games in as well as I'm gonna make a few for the boys, not got time to do them all tho....Jake has had 17 on his list I managed to get 13 & his nana has got him 2. I work it where every other year they get really spoilt...this is that year...damn it lol.
Not forgetting the tag that I attached on the side from my Magnolia doo hickey. I hand wrote on the front cus
I thought it would be more personal.
Not forgetting the prize for 1st of course......
Materials used & links.... (sorry I forgot last night oops, my bad)
'Fairytale' Sugar Nellie from of course Funky Kits ( my hubby has put in an order here but I'm not allowed to know what for as its to go to Santie lol.
Tag & base on flower - Magnolia Doo Hickey dies from Bunny Zoes
Mulberry white flower from Wild Orchid
Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons
Gems are from my stash & the embossed card was embossed using the 'Dots' cuttlebug folder & the 'Butterfly' folder which is so pretty. I used Spellbinders Eyelet Square nestie for the image.
Well thats it from me I hope you like this that I made, I hope Natalie likes it too, need to make some pretty pink ones now for her. My new toy did not arrive today :0( but the snow up here is still quite bad fortunately the roads in most places are better so hopefully it will come tomorrow, I already have the nestie for it that came the other day but the shop where I was getting the Calibur from let me down grrrrr so I went to Cuddly Buddly & ordered it from there.
I'm off for a cuppa now then hopefully some hopping then maybe more crafting lol....will see if that works out lol.

Hugs to you all.
