Just can't seem to get it right today....

YAY! My fairies are here! If you haven't seen the new chichiboulie line from Stamping Bella...you gotta look. They're so adorable! And she's added 2 more!

So this card took me foreeeeeeeeeevaaaaaaaahhhhh to make. I hemmed and hawwed and moved things and was dead set on having that little hangy tag. That thing almost became the death of me.
Anyone have a secret to using a split ring? Made me cuss and almost give up but dog-gone I wasn't going to let that teensy thing beat me!! Finally (after like 10 minutes of messin with it) I got it. hmph.

The sistahs should know who's gettin' this card...*wink*

I'm going to bed. MWAH!

Have I told you that I hate you?
Not a bad hate, a I HATE you are enabling me with this card -because I have tired to resist THIS particular image-but now have to go buy her-and can't order just ONE stamp-cause I have to justify shipping way-and will probably buy all of them sort of way.
Your coloring is breathtaking!

It was so worth it Shannan! She is adorable, and you did a fabulous job coloring her. You make me want them too, but I haven't even used the ones I have, so I can't justify it in my brain. Too busy spending money on PTI - he-he! Love her though!

This is adorable....everything looks great. I don't bother with the jump rings...I just use the mini safety pins. Adds a touch of bling and a different touch. I use them all the time...one of my go to pieces.

This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!! Do you have the little jewelers pliers? They make the jumprings open and close easily.

GORGEOUS, Shannan, and your labors with the taggy are well worth it! And even though I can tell by your hint that you want to send it to me, might I suggest a friend up north? : ) Seriously stunning, girl -- you rock!!!

Bethany Paull said...

ACK! This is way too gorgeous. Those deep colors make me want to reach out and touch it. Yes, I've always been the annoying person in the store/museum/whatever who has to actually TOUCH everything.
