Now mind you, I was thinking small. You know, a small little thing to tuck into a flower border as one would do a garden gnome or something of that nature. But if you knew my mother, you'd know she never does ANYTHING small. Small? What's that? Small schmall. So she started work and before I knew it, small became large, and thus Fannie Flamingo was "born."
Isn't she lovely?
She's about 4 ft. tall, maybe a little more, and my neighbors LOVE her. I live on a corner lot and Fannie sees a lot of traffic throughout the day. I need to plant some fluffy plants around her base to anchor her in the border a little more.
Which brings me to today's card which I made to fulfill a couple of challenges earlier this week. I had played around with the Smackin' Acetate background technique a couple of weeks ago, and one in particular struck me as being perfect for a "Fannie" card. I stamped the image with Staz-On ink and gussied the card up with ribbon, roses and a bow. The roses are made with SU DSP Subtles Stack and the leaves and pine branches are MS punches. I added a couple of pearls and voila, a "Fannie card!"
Thanks for looking and have a lovely day. Happy crafting!!
