A magical day....

Good afternoon my friends, I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself today, have been coughing and shivering all weekend...and now I'm full of cold too!  No appetite (what!) and can't concentrate, so I'm bored! Thought I'd just take my mind off my woes by sharing this I made earlier! It's completely simple as I wanted the focus to be on the fabulous image, she's called La Fee Verte and is of course an Aurora Wings beauty. I know mine isn't green but I think she'd look amazing in any colour! She's coloured entirely with copics, I resisted adding any glitter!, just matted the image onto purple cardstock and stamped the sentiment!
Thanks for popping by...sorry about the whingeing! I know people have far worse things to complain about!

  3. Gosh Chris you can have a whinge any day we are your friends and here not only to see your stunning work but to listen to any highs or lows. Talk about stunning this is mind blowingly beautiful, wow, what a detailed image you must have spent so much time colouring her in but what an incredibly beautiful creation it is, you did the right thing keeping the card design clean and simple I think any added embellishments would have spoilt the effect, stupendous card, hope you feel better soon Chris
