Good morning all. I'm checking in on everyone - making sure no one has stopped crafting without me ;)
It's been a couple of whirlwind weeks here, tomorrow we get the keys to our new home. With packing and getting rid of things I haven't used for years, I haven't had much time to sit down. I am really looking forward to Christmas holidays so I can sit and relax.
StampFairy is sponsoring Charisma Cardz' vintage challenge.
I again, used my favourite Jake bear.
I was just finishing up some of the flower details when I dropped one on Jake's scarf. I had hot glue everywhere and was in a panic thinking I'd ruined the whole card :S Turns out I was able to safe his scarf by using glossy accents - why not make him a shiny scarf!?!?! Good thing it didn't land on his face :S
