Look who's back!


Look what I am here with today!
The lovely Gayle at Teddy Bo is releasing her gorgeous Darcys Diaries images again and I am super excited to be able to say I am on the design team!!


The image I have used today can be found HERE.
I have coloured her with copics and promarkers and matted her onto two different layers and added some faux stitching. I found this stamp in my stash which I thought went perfectly with her. Very apt for a sympathy card but she would be great for a 'sorry card', 'sad news', 'loss', 'thinking of you' etc etc.

Right I am hoping this has posted for me as I will be sitting in the hairdressers getting a nice little wash, cut and blow dry.
Have a great day and be sure and stop by TEDDY BO and check out all the gorgeous new digi stamps!

Come fly with me......


Time for a new monthly challenge over at STAMPING SENSATIONS and this month its all about
things with wings!
We are sponsored this month by Crafty Devils with this amazing prize!!



For my card I went with a fairy! Don't usually go with fairies but I got a lovely set of free stamps with a mag and thought I would use them for my daughter-in-law's birthday card.
The stamps are from Lavinia and I went onto their site and bought a few of the background downloads which went perfectly!
I stamped the fairy, vines, toadstools, stars and sentiment in  Versafine onyx black and added some glitter. The sentiment was mounted and finished with a little bow and I added some peel offs to the edges.

Hope you get time to enter for a chance to win this great prize.
Have a good week.

Weather was great, hotel was excellent and the food was delicious!
