A l'il fairy goodness

Evening folks how are we all doing today.  Well I said I would be back with another little something I've made .. took me a little longer than planned to get it on here .. but I'm doing it now before anybody else pulls me away from my computer!

So who loves fairies I certainly do ... you're never to old to believe in fairies in my book.  There is just something about them that I love, something magical and what better image to use than a Lili of the Valley so out came 'on tiptoe' and my trusty copics and here's my finished card:-

Image:  Lili of the Valley 'on tiptoe'
Medium: copics
Papers:  Couture Creations 'Hearts Ease'
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts and stash
Ribbon, lace, doilies and pearls from stash

My usual close up of my little fairy ... isn't she just adorable.  My card would not be complete without just a little bit of glitter!


Creative Inspirations  -  anything goes

Simon Says Stamp  -  anything goes

Allsorts challenge  -  wings

The Ribbon Girl  -  any image challenge

I'm in the mood to colour now but ooh what image shall I choose next ... mmm so many gorgeous stamps to choose from.  I guess I'm going to be rummaging a while and I'm pretty sure that's why it ends up taking me ages to finish a card it's because I can never make my mind up which blinking stamp to use!

Take care.

Hello ... it's me!

Hello my lovelies it's been a really long while since I've posted anything on my little old blog in fact it's been a long time since I've actually crafted.  Last year was a really hard year for our family and we've struggled and crafting took a back seat I'm afraid.

Anyway, about a week ago I felt the urge to create so decided I would make something for my little girl and picked up my copics for a little play.  I ended up making her a box frame with a Wee image and loved how it turned out.

Items Used

Image:  Whimsy Stamps 'Sweet Blossom' by Wee Stamps
Medium:  copics
Papers:  Pink Petticoat 'Vintage Rose Collection', card for matting from Papermill Direct
Dies:  Whimsy Stamps 'Banner Pennant' die set
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts and some from stash

I used an 8 x 8 frame which I'd picked up a while ago.  I used the gorgeous Wee Stamps image 'Sweet Blossom' which is one of my favourites and coloured her up with my copics in colours to compliment the pretty Pink Petticoat papers from my stash.  I added a little ribbon, lace and couple of flowers and decided to add her name across the top as we struggle to find things with her name spelt that way.

A nice close up of the adorable image.  She's so cute and really lovely to colour.  

Copics List

Face/Body:  E000, E00, E11, W3

Okay that's my little bit of craftiness I've shared with you all for now.  I know I haven't been around for a while so if anyone has taken the time to pop in on me I would just like to say a little thank you for stopping by it is very much appreciated.

Take care folks.
