A gift for my daughter.

Thanks to Ms. Clairee (aka- Susie Sugar), I was able to finally pull together a doorhanger for my daughter Hannah, for Christmas. The hanger is compliments of Mrs. Sugar's Die Cut Dreams Store, as are the blingy stars & swirls. Thanks a bunch Susie!

The image is part of my winter surprise Magnolia collection & I colored her with distress inks & copics.
For all the blood, sweat & tears details of my trials & tribulations with distress ink watercoloring, please refer to my blog HERE.

The Large sparkly 'h' I got at Micheals in a pack of alphabet letters & the snowflake came from Micheals as well.....a big pack of different shapes & sizes of foam snowflakes. The rest of Hannah's name is spelled with stick on letters I've had since the beginning of time!! lol. The blue tassle ribbon is from a pack I bought at Hobby Lobby and the silver ribbon beneath it is from Really Reasonable Ribbons.

I am entering my doorhange into the following challenges Just Magnolia- sketch (see below), Magnolia Down Under- a gift for you, Magnolia-licioius Highlites- letter or word project, Our Creative Corner- dry embossing & adding color & Incy Wincy- shape it

AKA- Wheeza!
