Christmas wall hanging..



Good Evening, hope your all well and dodging this awful weather, wow those winds are so bad, scares me to death when it's like this...anyway, I have been making these hearts again, this time they are on a solid board back, so sturdy and hopefully, long lasting.....

It started last week when I got the idea that these would make a nice addition to the christmas Decks, so got hold of my SIL and forced him to get cutting, and he did..lol...even sanded them for me, I then painted them with white acrylic. Cut a heart out of card, stamped and heat embossed it, cut a smaller heart in the middle to make a frame, added the gorgeous Mo Manning image, Boughs for the wreaths, coloured with Promarkers and some shimmer for the snow,added some fibre from stash, around the edges,snowflakes from last year from Tilly, added some tiny gold beads I have had for ages, the big Ribbon is some I still had left on a roll from Christmas' long ago, it's the wired kind so makes it easy. and then slightly bowed two metal corners, from Mandy, quickly swished with acrylic again and stuck with hot glue...Edged it with MS doily punch......Can I just tell you about this punch, mine broke...again...so got in touch with Joanna Sheen to ask if it could be repaired or whatever, the y told me to send it back to them, but they were'nt selling them now...soooo....I did, the wonderful woman only sent me her very own and asked would I accept that....now is that good or what...I could not believe my luck, can't wack that for service, they were under no obligation at all....well pleased...... The letters are from a pack I bought a few weeks ago from Burnside Garden Center, Woodware Chippies, love them so versatile and could do with a stack of them to be honest, better add that to my wish list for Carla...lol....anyway, covered them with cosmic shimmer.
I am entering this into the Ribbon Girl Christmas Challenge and
I Love Promarkers...Anything goes

Thats about it, this is the second one I made by the way, show you the other tomorrow, if I get chance, my tribe are coming,I also had to do a much bigger one for Carla' friend, who apparently, in true Carla style, moved on Thursday, of course Carla forgot until Wednesday night.....oh that girl, how many times is this now....and I never got a picture of it...by the time I was done, I was knackered, just told her to come get it and leave me alone...lol....bloody kids....

Right I am off to rest, have done far too much today and feel shattered, saving my self for tomorrow, hope you all having a nice week-end, and if your still here, THANKYOU...lol....
Take care, hugs Janette.xxxxxxx
