Hello! Today I have a card that made it’s bloggy debut last night on the Simply B Stamps Blog. It’s for her own 12 Days of Christmas. Today is Wreck the Halls. And there is a lovely little ditty on the blog to give you inspiration. I used a bee-u-ti-ful new image called Oval Portrait from the Steampunk collections. Can I just say, I NEED her dress! Now, I am pretty sure that she wasn’t intended to be a Christmas image. But I thought the flowers on the side looked kinda like poinsettias, and the daffodils could easily be paperwhites, since they are in the same family…and paperwhites are often grown indoors at Christmastime. See what happens when you work in a nursery for 7 and a half years? I mean, that was many, many moons ago…but I have retained a lot of that info. But I digress… Couldn’t you just imagine this being a huge portrait hanging in the Great Hall? I just love the skull at the bottom and the bones at the top. I think I may blow this up really huge and actually use acrylic paints on it…because it’s just a stunning image. I hope you will stop by the SBS Blog to see what other hall-wreckin’ creations are on display. Won’t you join in on the fun too? All of the deets are on the blog, of course! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Totally fabulous! I love that image and how you colored it. And yes, I could see it huge and in an intensely gothic frame, hung over a fireplace in a gorgeous Victorian home in Garden City!
