Post Potter Depression

Please J K Rowlings, write another book for us.  We haven't gotten our fill of Hogwarts, Muggles, Moving Staircases, potions and spells.  Harry may have grown up, but we didn't. 

We had our Harry Potter party at the theater for the last time today.  I must say this was the best movie yet.  When I came home I had to have some Post Potter therapy so I hit the craft table and made my Sassy Cheryl Challenge card for this week.  The challenge is to use paper ribbon on the card and this is my take on paper ribbon.  When I saw this little pout I loved her, but after the movie today she just symbolized all that my granddaughters and friends were feeling.  So wah-lah...........

She is colored with Copics.  The "ribbon" strip was edged punched with a SU border punch and the bow is cut-out with a Sissix die.  The sentiment is computer generated and glued on a smashed bottle cap popped up with foam tape.  Sorry I don't know who the DP is from.  The cardstock is SU.  

Click here to be transported to Sassy Cheryl's new digi blog.  She has a bunch of precious digis to choose from and her new digi sites are so nice.  Treat yourself to a peek. If you see something you would like to color and enter into the paper ribbon challenge, you just may win a free digi from her shop.  If you don't have time to enter before Monday night at 5:00 p.m.EST, just check back on Tuesday morning and the Sassy ladies will have a brand new challenge to enter.

  6. You really were in Post Potter Depression to come home and whip out this utterably beautiful card. I had to have this image too. She just looks plain MAD that the Potter years have ended.

  7. Hmm...never read any of the harry potter books, or seen any of the movies....but I do love your card.

  8. Awww...she looks like me last night after I saw HP!! I was so bummed ALL night. So sad it's over. I did hear they have a hot line for PPD...SERIOUSLY!! Your card is totally adorable Linda! We can have a HP-A-Thon ~jeni :)

  9. Awh, Linda, so sorry you are feeling sad about the end of the HP series. I read the first couple when I was teaching sixth grade but once I left the classroom, I stopped reading them!
