8 May 2012


Hi all, what a storm we had last night here in Glos, the heavens just opened up and stayed open way into the early hours of the morning, I don't think the garden will need my attentions for awhile, lol.
Today it is Team B's turn to host the challenge over at
The sponsor is our very own lovely Donna of Bearly Mine Designs the lucky winner will receive their choice of 2 paper sets, with new ones recently launched and some more on Friday the choice will be even more difficult.
The theme this week is a subject that is very close to my heart and I am sure your's as well it is
Here is my DT card
I have used an image that I have fallen in love with called 'Little Bit Grumpy' from The Paper Shelter.  I have coloured her with Copics I cut her out so I could mount her 3'd.
The base card is a 6x6 Papermania I have used papers from the Mini Dots set and Fairy Delights.  I have gone for a Lilac, Lavender, Purple theme just for a change, the central die cut is a Spellbinders Splendid Circle I topped that with a pink circle which I surrounded with pearls, I added a Lilac Organza double bow and flower, I also added a strip of the organza ribbon topped with a lilac spotty ribbon across the centre finally I added a stamped sentiment and some more flowers and gems.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I do hope that you will come join us with your favourite Fairy images at 
Bearly Mine Challenges
We really look forward to seeing you,
Hugs to all see you in a bit.
