My First Blog Hop!!!

I am very excited to announce, that I have been asked 
to be part of my first ever blog hop 
as a Designer!!!

Sorry about the odd colours but
blogger will not let me change it!!

I was asked by a friend of mine
from The Craft Barn, where we were both Tutors.
if I would be part of her showcase, for a new collection 
of fabulous stamps she has designed.

So I had to choose 2 of the stamps to use
for my cards or projects.

That was very difficult, as they are all stunning.

 She was invited to be a guest artist in the 
Paperbabe Stamps family and to celebrate 
they are having a little blog hop...

She is the very talented artist, Chris Dark and has designed 
a collection of beautiful Garden Fairies Stamps.

The Butterfly Catcher, Butterfly Emerges, 
Butterfly Fairy, and Musical fairy. 

They are a larger set and 
each includes a beautiful sentiment.

Just to let you know, Chris still does workshops 
at The Craft Barn. So check out when she is
there again in April, link HERE

To add extra fun to our blog hop... we are offering up a prize! 
of the whole garden fairies collection to one lucky winner.

My first card is using 
The Butterfly Fairy.

I created the background with Distress Inks
and masks.
I also coloured her with Distress Inks.
Had to add Stickles too!

Her hair is actually yellow/gold but
looks a bit green in the photo!!
Possibly the addition of Stickles.

This next card is The Musical Fairy.
I coloured her with Copics Pens.

You can see how big these stamps are, as 
both of my cards are A5

I feel so lucky that Chris asked me to do this.
I am now the proud owner of these stunning stamps.

So enjoy the blog hop and good luck.
If I was you, I would comment on all of the blogs, 
to get more of a chance to win all 
4 sets of these beautiful stamps.


Big hugs,

Wedding Time

Just a quick post, or this will sit in 'Draft'
and get forgotten!!

The Lili of the Valley image 
Coloured with Copics for a change.

I chose the colours from the ribbon, as I just love
the dusky pink colour.

The Easel stop is stamped with Versamark clear 
embossing ink and embossed with silver
detail embossing powder.
The sentiment was a freebie with a magazine.

The paper was from a pack from The Works.
They have 12" x 12" pads, 24 double sided card
for £3!!! Works out at 12p a sheet!

I have got an exciting end to this month but 
can't say what it is yet.
So make sure you pop back on Friday!!

We will also have the next Winter Wonderland 
challenge on that day too.
All happening on Friday!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Thanks for stopping and just love 
reading the lovely messages you leave.

Pretty and Purple

Firstly, I must thank all of you that left me
amazing messages on my last post.
I was blown away.

I have been having a nightmare with blogger today.
Louise, also on the Winter Wonderland DT had the same 
problem last week and still has it.
You bring up the box to upload photos to put on your blog.
That works, at least you can get the photos in the box.
You then click on them and then click Add Selected.and then
.....................Nothing happens!!!
I did notice, that in the top right corner of the box,
there should be one small 'X' but just above it there is a big 'X' too.

All this happened on our main computer.
I thought I was wasting my time but I tried to upload on my Laptop. worked!!! Only 1 'x' in the box!!!!
WHY?!!!!! Who knows!!

So I have now got my adorable All Dressed Up Flower Fairy
on my blog.
She is one of the cutest fairies I have and I have a lot!!

Coloured with Distress Inks and Marvy Le Plume pens.
Plenty of Stickles

I am going to enter her in the ADU challenge.

So thank you for popping in again and hope you like or 
even love my precious fairy.

Anything goes but must use an ADU image
There are free images if you don't have one.

Big hugs,
