First Embrace

Good Afternoon My Crafty friends, Followers and Visitors,

I trust you are all well this fine afternoon.  Now that the dark clouds have dispelled
we have some sunshine, for how long is any ones guess but hopefully long enough
to dry my washing.

I made today's offering on Thursday but have only just managed to upload
to my blog, hope you like?


1. Using an 8 x8 white card (my favourite size) I took a printed
sheet (taken from one of my Cd's and using the Tonic Regal
Border Punch I created the edge.  This was then stuck to the

2. Being unable to find the correct size frame for the image
I took a Martha Stewart Punch and created my own frame
out of white card.  To this I added the image which is from
Hunkydory and then glittered parts of the dress, feather
boar, headband, Chandelier and Christmas Tree to give
that little more texture.

3. To complete I added lilac flowers and leaves, created a
bow from white ribbons and enhanced the bow with
sliver glitter gems.

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit and that you will
come back again soon.

As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
