Been a long time coming...

Happy Friday evening ya'll! I hope everyone is doing fantastic! Well...long story's been a LOOOONNNNGGGG time since I honestly felt like I created something for the simple reason of CREATING SOMETHING! I have a lot of assignments (most of which I am behind on...shhhhh!) and a lot of times even though I'm having a blast creating stuff...sometimes I wonder how often I just get to throw down and PLAY! Well...earlier this week I received my monthly order from CTMH...and MAN-O-MAN...GOOD STUFF! So tonight I just chilled and played...nothing set in my mind...well correction...once I saw the sketch I had a fairly good idea of what I wanted to do...but even in my wildest dreams...let's just say for the first time in a VERRRRRRY long time...what I have created I would not change anything on! I simply adore it! Pics may not show it's justice...but WOWZA in person! Not to mention I hand painted the flower with Glimmer Mist! I mean often do any of us just sit and take the time to work something from start to finish taking the most painstaking detail????? Or maybe it's just me that has the tendency to take short cuts when I can...ANYWAYS...

Here is my Cree-a-shun:

I loved the corner element because it came strictly from me playing around:

And here is an idea of the over all 3-D factor:
