Some Love with a Hanglar

Wow... ok....I do not want to be a Pizza Delivery person... and I didn't do hardly anything. HA.. you have no idea what I am talking about do you? Well my nieces are in dance and they had a fund raiser this year of selling pizza kits.. well it was pizza's, bread sticks, salads, and frozen cookies... ok, great fund raiser... but my poor sister literally became a door to door pizza delivery person, I only picked up a few for my side of town and took them all to one place. We are not talking about a total of 5-10 pizzas... we are talking 40-50! Whew! She really worked hard, but it was worth it as the girls are at their total needed for everything! Yea!





Anyway, I wasn't home early and so that cut into my crafting time. Luckily I had an image colored... so I just had to put it all together. It was kind of fun, I didn't worry about any challenge or work that needed to be done... nope just a card to match my already colored image. And well it did help that I got some gorgeous paper yesterday at Hobby Lobby... love the new SEI paper collection called "Chocolat"!! Oh I may have to get a second pack of this stuff!




So I took my Hanglar image, that is on watercolor paper and colored with my pencils and mineral spirits, matted it with the base card stock and a chocolate brown, then cut a piece of the SEI paper... very carefully making sure to get the parts I wanted without wasting any of it. Matted that with the chocolate brown, and wrapped the satin ribbon around the top. I then stacked a bunch of prima flowers up, with spacers, and mini brads. I cut the edge of one of the flowers and slipped the image behind it. The sentiment is a sizzix die cut that I cut out of the pink, edges with brown ink, then stickles. I gel pen stitched the edges. "Love" the colors and the Hanglar is one of my favorites.






I had to feed and water this morning as Hubby left early... brrrrrrr it was cold, I love the donkeys when it is cold... I wish I could get a photograph of them, their fur gets really full and puffy, so cute. Maybe in the morning I can try, as it is hard to photo, feed, water and love on them by myself.




Now for some breakfast and then some blogging.... Have a great Wednesday, and get inky!
