What A Lovely Day....

Hi everyone, a little later than I wanted, but I'm here with my card for Saturated Canary, I am so busy behind the scenes with Christmas cards and trying to get ahead of myself for when I go on holiday.

I have coloured Let's Play Fairies with my Inktense pencils, I have a few tutorials for these, just have a peek in the tutorial tab at the top.

Isn't she so cute? I love her bed head, reminds me of my little girl playing round before she's even had her hair brushed, and her improvised whisk 'wand' is fab!

Sorry it's short and sweet, but you will soon see what I have been up to.

Here's my artistic view,

Make A Tag at The Ribbon Girls Magnolia Only Challenge

Morning everyone, I'm here today, a little late, with this months Magnolia only challenge over at The Ribbon Girl. I had to make my tag this morning, as always I was running last minute, and yesterday Grace and I spent a lovely day with Mary and Andrea, from the Ribbon Girl. We met the super cute, and adorable Haggis, spent some time colouring, but mostly we sat chatting and enjoying the lovely weather and watched the occasional plane fly over from Sunderland airshow. It was a perfect day, thank you ladies, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Now, on to my tag...

I have coloured Tilda With Rose Lace Dress with Inktense pencils onto Kraft, I'm going to have to get more Kraft as I love this affect. The tag has been cut using a Go Kreate die, and I have taped cream teeny tiny pom pom trim between two tags. The bow is made from ivory faux silk, with some chocolate brown hemp twine with a brass button charm. I couldn't not have flowers on, so there is a ivory rolled rose and a couple of sweetheart blossoms too.

We are sponsored by Magnolia and the Ribbon Girl.
