Heidi in the Forest....

Hello... Here's little Heidi again... can you tell how much I love her!!! you might even see her again soon... but I promise she will always be coloured differently so hopefully you won't get bored!! As you can enter twice for the Crafting Life's Pieces November Challenge I thought I would use the Sketch again and use Autumn Colours this time... with the idea that Heidi is in a Christmas Forest...



This gorgeous Wee Stamp called 'Heidi' is available from My Crafty Heart. The scrummy papers are a mix of Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove and My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found. The sentiment is LOTV from the Grunge Christmas Stamp Set.


The Flower is a Prima one that I've had for over a year! and it just happened to be the right colour... the holly is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little gold berries have been recycled from an old xmas flower arrangement.... pearls are MeiFlower - Coffee Mix. The little wooden tree and ribbon are from stash.


I've coloured 'Heidi' with Watercolour Pens. I've used a little bit of Wow Flock on her Pom Poms and Snow Crystal Glitter for the Snow.

hope you like it! :-)

I would like to enter this into the following Challenges:-

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - 'Inspired by a Carol' ends 19th November 2012
(Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas)
Paper Crafting Journey - 'Anything Goes' ends 21st November 2012

Love and Hugs
