Elegant Lady

I am running so late this week with my creations, I will be so glad when Christmas is over. I'm sure those of you who work in retail will understand. The Range is sooooo busy, the craft department is mad, as quick as we are putting stock out, its gone again....thankfully its only gonna last another 4 maybe 5 weeks lol!

Anyhoos, my creation for My Time To Craft is one I'm so not 100% happy with. I couldn't decided on an image so asked Nige to help me decide. He chose this one....remind me never to ask for his input again lol. Its not that I don't like the image, I do, its just I didn't have papers to match or really the inclination to colour her in. As you can see if you look closely I forgot to colour her feathers in...oops!! It wasn't until I was sorting photos out that I noticed, to late now...so please be gentle with me...I know its crap so its not getting entered into any challenges, I'd be embarrassed xx
