I found this adorable setup in the library and just had to do it for my next card for Christmas this year. Its one from mustcreates shots.. TY mustcreate. All of this is just the blocking in stage. I would appreciate any and all C&C that one might see that needs to be adjusted before I go on. Its 8 x 10 on the dreaded canvas board. What was I thinking in using that :eek:

arl u didnt have to wait to long with it :)

TxAggieDarlin ..unfortunately I chose to use that canvas board ...ya know the one with NO give to it. I dont usually use it but had some from yrs back and thought oh well might as well .. baaaaaad thought. I will scan it into my computor then use a good grade card stock and print it off with my epson. They turn out really nice.



well I think I am done, faster then I thought, have worked on it for several hrs today. Again I appreciate any C& C you would like to share :)

thanks for looking
