Snape, Snape, Severus Snape

Good afternoon all,

It's sunny here at the moment...but it's also raining. I just don't get it lol. I was all set to go out for a walk to get some air and weightbearing exercise for my bones, and now it's raining. Grrrr! I hate being cooped up :(

So obviously, I turned to crafting instead! I'm rereading the Harry Potter books for the millionth time at the moment, so I've got Harry Potter on the brain. I'm obsessed. I tend to get obsessed with books - Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones... you just can't beat a good book! :D So here's what I made today :)

The image is from Bugaboo, the corners, rose and gem are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the charm is from Ribbon Girl, I printed the sentiment off the computer (it's a quote from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), the swirl is a Marianne Design die, the butterflies are a MS punch, the papers and ribbon came from my stash and I made the pin myself. 

A closeup of the image. Snape is one of my favourite Harry Potter characters! Even since before the movies existed I had a bit of a crush on him, and then when the movies came out and he was played by Alan Rickman...yummy :D I just think these Bugaboo images are so cute :)

A closeup of my bow, charm and pin - it's the first pin I've ever made, so I guess I'm happy enough with it.

A closeup of the main bit of the card, I had originally thought to make a circular tag, but then decided to make it into a card :) 

The quote. So basically this is a love card I guess, for someone to profess their undying love for someone else even after a very long time.

And for all the Harry Potter fans - if you haven't watched this video, watch it now - I think it's brilliant :D
