First for Today

Had a productive couple of days and here's another one for the stash. This one though was about to go into the bin as I had a bit of a disaster with the nestie! The image is a feeebie digi which I coloured with promarkers. Cutting her out was fine - then I thought 'I'll just emboss the edges'... should have left well alone cos as I ran it through the machine again the paper must have slipped - result? An image which had the wonkiest embossing you've ever seen. Agghhhhhhh- !!!!
Sat for a while looking at it and cursing then put it to one side and started something else.

Halfway through the new project I remembered some fibres I had. Tipped out the box - not a lot left.... could I stretch it? LOL. Just about - I was left with less than an eighth of an inch after covering the edge! So she was saved from the bin and to celebrate I gave the 'furry' bits of her outfit a liberal dose of Stickles in not one but TWO colours!

She's stuck onto a blue foiled background which is layered onto silver mirri card. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the corners and the snowflakes were from my stash.
