Hi, sorry so absent, but busy week.  Rick came down with a bad cold and ended up having to get anitbiotics and missed three days work, Doctor"s orders.  This is his last day at work, as he is retiring, so he was really not liking going out like this.

Here's a closeup of the emobossing folder, Dress Form with Wings, by Couture Creations.

Oh what fun this one is. It embosses the dress form and the two bottom corners.
I used Spun Sugar distress ink around the edges and on the dress form. I distressed the edges before applying the ink. Colored the pole with a dark brown pencil. I used a Gelly Roll clear sparkle pen to highlight the wire frame. Gold Stickles on the buttons and necklace and chain. The felt buttons are from my stash. The spool of gold thread is from a Sizzix die cut (Tim Holtz) and I added some gold thread and a stick pin. And, the best part for last, I added some beautiful fluffy white feathers over the wings, they just dance when you move the card! Mounted it on a patterned paper 5x7 inch card.
Inside sentiment is "Thanks "Sew" Much" by Stampabilities (QR1054).

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Friday and weekend.  Until later......

Oh my, Sue - what a gorgeous creation! So beautiful!!! Sorry to hear that your DH is feeling badly, but happy for you that he's retiring! Wish mine could do so, but being self-employed, he will probably be working yet for many years. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration, my friend!!! Happy New Year!

This is amazing! Wow! I love everything on this - totally impressive! Hope Rick is doing better - the holidays are not a good time for illness - but the thought of retiring probably helped - it would me!!! Hugz!
