Forever Friends Challenge

Good Evening, hope you are all warm and snuggly, well it has not snowed for the past 3 hours good stuff :O) the ground is completely covered still except for some tyre tracks that have now turnt to slick ice eeeek, it is my sister in laws 30th birthday tomoz and I am so worried as to visiting her, I cant not go and see her, its her birthday after all, so we shall see what everything is like in the morning, hopefully better conditions. I dont do driving in icy or snowy weather, I got a text to say schools closed tomoz too, my gosh the kids will be pulling their hair out! and me mine lol ;O)

On to the card, The challenge this week is "tall and thin" hmmmm, I knew exactly what I was going to do, thank gosh dont you love it when that happens lolI cut several sizzix frames, cut one as an aperature in my card, and used the frames to frame it, mainly to hide my messy cutting lol. I coloured the image with promarkers, I coloured the bear using cinnamon and I never usually tend to colour him so dark but I love it.
I cut the hearts from a sizzix die with diff scraps of paper I had left. The tiny hearts are punched from an xcut ounch and I added swarovski crystals to those, I didnt think I would be convinced by these but m gosh they are tiny but give off much sparkle, gorgeous. Heres the inside:-I punched little hearts for the left side, and more sizzix hearts at the bottom with some crystals in those. http://foreverfriendschallengeblog.blogspot.com/Thanks for stopping by and looking.xxx
