Heidi - CLP Sketch

Hello... Happy Bonfire Night! I hope you are all well.... and big hugs to those who are not... I am feeling much better now although I do seem to be very SLOW at doing stuff... I have been really struggling to find my mojo... so thought I would work with a Sketch for some inspiration... I have used this fab one from Crafting Life's Pieces for their November Challenge.

I've used a gorgeous Wee Stamp called 'Heidi' which is available from My Crafty Heart. The gorgeous papers are Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove. The border and sentiment was also included in the pad.

I've added a rich red bow. Both the ribbon and pink gems are from MeiFlower. Also some Wooden Snowflakes from stash. Sorry about the photos they are a bit glary!! and poor Heidi looks totally anaemic but she does have a pink face irl honest!!... I've taken so many photos of this card and I'm still not happy but it will have to do... I should get my light box out but I don't have the energy yet!!! LOL

I've coloured 'Heidi' with Watercolour Pens. I've added 'Snow Crystal' Glitter on image and also on the torn paper.....

hope you like it! :-)

I hope you are all having a nice evening. My daughter and her boyfriend have gone to a Firework Display... I'm staying in warm and snug!! Just had my Bangers and Mash for Supper... so am nice and relaxed and will probably be feeling sleepy again very soon!! Wasn't Downton fab!! I am going to miss it SO much... isn't the new girl Rose a Hoot!!! LOL methinks she is going to cause bedlam in the Christmas Special !!!
Take care
Love and Hugs
