Better late than never


Regular visitors to my blog will recognise this gorgeous image as I use her every year. Normally she has had an outing before now but here she is at last. She is one of the first stamps I bought and I still love her just as much as I did then and I love colouring her. Whilst I love paper I have really got into using embossing folder lately.
Image - Elisabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy
Medium - Copics
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Dies - Memory Box stitched snowflakes
Other - embossing folder, pearl pen
