Hello

It's been a few since since my last post.  I've been very busy with work but nearly hit all my deadlines and will be back to crafting strong again soon.

It is a shaker card and with the little bells on it too, makes a wonderful Christmas sound!

Fairies and their wonderland

Morning!

Oh dear! We are all a bit slow this morning!  It's dark now when we get up and seems to take us all that little bit longer to get started, to be honest, I don't even think my eyes are fully open right now.

The image I am bringing to you today is from Emerald Faerie Garden, I'm not sure you can get these images anymore, which is a great shame but makes it even more special for me as a crafter to have the pleasure of its continued use.


I wanted to give this Faerie a cosy feeling of sleeping under the stars so did a dark background and used frantage to light it up.


I surrounded the image with Petal Lu flowers and used a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.


Copics used:

Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00
Faerie: Y35, Y38, YR68, E08, E18, G20, Y11, Y00
Mushroom: R56, R85, RV34, R83, R81, G20, Y11, Y00
Background: B39, C7, BV25, C5, C3, C1


Challenges I am entering this into are:

Aud Sentiments Challange - Use a Die Cut & a Sentiment
Crafting with an Attitude - Anything Goes
Through the Purple Haze - Anything Goes


Thank you once again for popping over x

Star Princess

Hi there! 

The best bit about my craft time today was my daughter sitting beside me making her little brother a card too.  We discussed this one at great length, she wanted pink hair, I wanted blue, she wanted a blue dress and I wanted yellow! We did however agree on the colour of the stars!!

I decided to use Star Princess from Whimsy Stamps in the Kirsten Winkelbauer Collection, my daughter doesn't realise just how many of these stamps I have and will be thrilled to bits as over the next few weeks they will all be used.  You can get these stamps either from Whimsy Stamps or for UK Crafters Dies to Die For.

So, moving swiftly on.......
