Wee Snippet & Mystic

Wee Snippet and Mystic stole my heart when released by Chrissy Armstrong and I've finally made the time to color them up.  Mystic looks a lot grayer in the photo than he really is but aren't they just the cutest.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Flutterby Wednesdays - Butterfly, Fairy or Angel 
Sentimental Sundays - Inky Fingers

The DP is from Bo Bunny's Jazmayne Twilight and the plain card stock from my scraps.  I made a shadow box for the image instead of matting and added that gorgeous butterfly from my stash.  An MS border punch was used to create the decorative sides and the image was colored with Copics.

This has been my first week ever of experiencing problems with blogger, posting, and commenting so I hope whatever is going on is fixed soon because it's so disheartening to leave a comment 2 or 3 times and still not have it show up.  It hasn't happened on every blog but so many of you that I've visited the comment was not accepted.  I haven't missed visiting any of you that have left me comments this week and I do want you to know I did stop by and will continue to stop by until whatever they are doing is fixed and it will take my comment.  I had to try 3 times this morning before it would even let me post and was about ready to pull out my hair (what little I have anymore........LOL).

We think they may have the electrical problem fixed, but not 100% sure, so it's a wait and see game we are still playing.  The front of the house is almost complete except for the new railing, wrapping the windows and new posts, and new doorway.  We are going to have a new electrical breaker box installed before winter but I'm getting my Christmas shopping done first or I won't have any money to shop.......lol. 
Santa is not bypassing this house!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon. Hopefully today I will be able to leave some comments as I visit all of you.  My goal is to visit everyone on my Blogging Friends List so I'll be on and off most of the day and evening.  Have a wonderful Sunday!
"Love & Hugs" Carol

This is a super cute image friend! WOW I love your shadow box too, it really pops the image out and the ribbon and butterly really set it all off. Good luck with your new home improvements, I'm sure it will be wonderful once it's all finished. Hugs Annie xXx

Hi! Carol, the punch you asked about, I have had for years, but I do know it is 'Friskas' and I think it is called 'Lace punch'.
Hope that is enough info, I can always e-mail you a picture of it if you like, one of the punch and one of the cut out.Just let me know if you would like that.
Luv CHRISSYxx

wow carol! this is beautiful. i think the gray is perfect. doesn't look too dark at all!

i find that i have trouble leaving a comment on blogs which need to be translated to english. if you click ORIGINAL and go back the the language it's in, you'll be able to post. don't know about us USA folk. heck, the entire country is in trouble why should blogger be any different - LOL.

hugs :)

Cheryl said...

What a beautiful project Carol - your colouring is fabulous, and I love the shadow box design.
Sorry you're having blogger problems - there have been so many of them in recent weeks and it's very frustrating isn't it. I thought I had solved "the case of the missing followers", by changing to the Firefox browser. It worked brilliantly for several weeks, but my followers have been popping in and out again over this weekend - at the moment they are at home
so I'm gonna lock the door!! Hope your problems are solved quickly.
Hugs, Sylvia xxx
PS: Have you tried changing to either Firefox, or Google Chrome - it may be worth a try.

Carol this image from Chrissy is unbelievablly cutttttttttteeee!. You have done an amazing job of bringing it to life with your gorgeous colouring. The pretty touches of sparkle on the unicorns horn and the little fairy's wings, simply add to how pretty this image is. I adore the layout that you've used and the shadow box is a great effect.Beautiful colour combo as well.
I've given up on blogger so many times over the last few months with it not accepting images from my computer, not allowing me to post or not saving the post altogether. I also wish that they would hurry up and fix whatever they are doing.
*Hugs*
