I *heart* Hanglar

Howdy everyone! I can't believe in just a few short hours it will be Monday again *sob* -- the weekends just go too quickly, there is way too much to do -- & I have to admit I am NOT looking forward to a doctor appointment tomorrow. It just seems wrong to have to go see a doctor on a Monday. On the other hand, Mondays completely stink -- so why not get all the yucky stuff out of the way in one day, right? 

So I'm moving at my normal snail pace -- it took me a week to finish this card -- & another 3 days to take the photos -- 2 days to edit -- & I finally added the watermark today LOL. Efficient, no? What can I say -- too much to do!

So in the spirit of the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday -- I spied this adorable Hanglar that I thought was perfect. 



If I had to guess, I would say my friend Tammi sent this image to me -- she's like my crack dealer for Hanglars, lol -- she keeps me well stocked :)

I kept it fairly simple -- I colored the image with pencils -- had a bit of a mishap with the heart -- after clear embossing it, it CRACKED. All I did was try to uncurl the image which had become a bit warped after heating it --- & it CRACKED. I am sending this card to a friend & I really didn't want to send a broken heart!! So -- luckily I did have another image (see -- well stocked) so I colored the heart again, embossed it again, cut it out,  & was very careful when gluing it on. I think I see a hairline fracture -- but I'm not doing it a third time, lol!

The white paper is all shimmery card stock ---- *love* that stuff -- embossed with the Paisley & Dotted Cuttlebug folders. Some red ribbon -- a few small flowers -- very simple!




I must be a freak but I just love this time of year. I love that the only holiday in the near future is Valentine's Day. No stress. Even our winter this year is fantastic. A few snowstorms -- & hairy drives to work -- but really some wonderful temps. This whole week is supposed to be in the 40's -- 40's?? In January? In WISCONSIN??? Lovin' it! I get the snow --- but not the zero degree temps that make your snot freeze!

I hope you have a wonderful week -- so many at CHA this week, lucky ducks! My week consists of work --- parent teacher conferences -- & HEY a Pampered Chef party on Friday! Not CHA but not too shabby either :)
