Strange Coincidences

Well Boys and Girls tonight I would like to show you one of my recent cards. Now here is where the coincidence comes in... I first saw this stamp coloured with blackish hair on the Sweet Pea site and there seemed to be something familiar about it. So I bought it, stamped it out and it hit me that it looks like my friend (and model) Heather (well except for the whole being a mermaid thing...).
So the first picture is Heather in all her glory (taken by Shari Tucker). The second is a picture of the card I sent her... thanks for the leopard print sweetie!!

So I coloured the image with chalks, as per usual. It is cut out using a spellbinders, the base was a pair of Fiskars corner rounding scissors, as were the two mats. The paper is Close to my Heart "Wicked". The flowers are made using a Cuttlebug die (that is my new FAV!! and unfortunately they aren't making any more) then rolled using a quilling tool. There were brown pearls in the center of each flower, but Canada Post sorta knocked them off. I think that it still looks ok though.

Thanks Heather and Shari!!
