Sweetpea - Poinsetta Fairy in Pink

I wonder if it will ever stop raining? Here is my card I have done for the following challenges.

The image is Sweetpea's Poinsetta Fairy, the paper is basic grey Eva, the flowers are prima and the brads were papermania I think the packaging has long gone. The lace is stash, I hope you like x

Wags and whiskers Blog Hop and update

Just a reminder that the Wags and Whiskers Blog Hop for the new fairytale release is on, just click on the picture to take you to the beginning.

Sorry I have not been around of late, having a disaster of a month. First I was suffering with that horrid cough and then whilst on holiday I hit my head on a beam on a napoleonic ship and have given myself concussion, so dizzy and splitting headache. Doctors have said no long term damage just need to take it easy for a week or two. I hope to get back into the craft room and join in all the challenges soon. I have been visiting blogs even if I have not commented.

ABC Design Team Card A is for August

Quick post today as my cold is back and I am cough cough coughing all over the place. The theme is August on ABC this challenge and we want to see cards that represent the month of August. I immediately thought of the rice tones in the Basic Grey Merrakesh pad. As the paper was so busy I felt only one sheet was needed, but I made up for that with flowers! A Sweetpea image coloured in copics with a few gems in the corner.

I hope you like x

I look forward to seeing your creations x
