Mr Fixit!

I must have been a good girl this year....Father Christmas brought me quite a few lovely new craft goodies ;0) I had a little play with some of them yesterday, and made a couple of cards...the one I'm showing you today, uses a Lili of the Valley stamp called 'Mr Fixit' that was a gift from my lovely crafty friend Samantha - thank you! I coloured him using watercolour pencils, to match the blue/green colours of Distress Core'dinations card I used for the background. I embossed the strips of card using my Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' and 'Diamond Plate', and Sizzix/BasicGrey 'Plaid' folders...sanding over the surface to reveal the lighter core. I added some Craftwork Cards Card Candi, and a sentiment (from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts).
