Scherenschnitte

Looky!  Scherenschnitte on my scherenschnitte blog!

My brother suggested that a good Christmas present for my niece might be a bookmark with fairies on it.  Unfortunately, at the time I was too busy snipping Christmas cards to make one.  Her birthday is coming up in a week so ....ta da!  


Here's what it looked like before it was pressed into the bookmark sleeve.  I like it with the depth and shadows.
Here it is flattened out in the bookmark sleeve.  Hope she likes it.

Hiya Jan! Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving your comment. My sister thinks I'm a little OCD when it comes to my living space :)

Oh yeah...I painted my first painting as a gift at Christmas and it turned out! Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture. Silly me.
