Fairy Pretty Colours


I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since our last Lili Of The Valley challenge !! But it has been and today we have such a wonderful challenge for you because it is

Blue & Silver

and one more colour of your choice :)

Well of course I had to do it didn’t I – I went for pink!!! But the other girlies have all used different colours and there’s loads of inspiration and loveliness waiting for you over there so do check it all out peeps if you get a sec.

And of course, you don’t even have to use a LOTV image either, just follow the theme . And we have a lovely pair of LOTV stamps for you to win as well -



These are just the sweetest babies ever.

So here’s what I did.

The image is from LOTV, natch, and she is Fairies Bouquet which you can see here – isn’t she pretty. These stamps are just awesome value for money I think and they stamp like a dream – especially on the digi card which I told you about yesterday.

I coloured her with Copics and PMs and added a bit of bling here and there, especially on her fairy crown and wings. You can get oodles of Copics and PMs from Tracy over at Dies To Die For :)

bloom1flip I flipped this so you could see the bow / flower thing I did.

It’s basically a knot of silver mesh ribbon which you can just about see. Then I tied some pearly beady stick things together – sorry for the overtly technical term lol xxx but I don't know what they are called – and topped it all off with a gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts bloom.

The papers are all Pink Petticoat. Ohhh how happy was I when I saw that there are now gingham papers available. Not only that but Liz has a fabulous offer on right now – all 5 of the new colour collection designs for £5. So they are half price. At full price they are bargainous but at this, they are a steal. The offer is on I think until 9th April so fill your boots girlies. The other papers I used are Lots Of Dots (which is also one of the new ones) .

I used some more of the pearls I got from The Hobby House at the NEC on Saturday. I used a Bazzill Jewel Template for the design – you can see them here – and they make the job so much easier.

Before I forget, I must let you know that Tracy at Dies To Die For has the new Ladybug Crafts Ink stamps in – ohh they are sweet and absolutely perfect for girlie cards. And there’s lots of new stuff being added all the time. Plus there is going to be something new and different and very exciting on there before too long which I am dying to tell you about but I can’t – she says, sitting on her hands!! But it’s a fab idea, and one which I’m sure you’ll love so keep checking the website peeps :)

So that is me done on this April Fool’s day – I better watch out cos I am a perfect target as I am sooo gullible and if you pardon the expression, I have been had quite a few times!!!! I can’t even bring myself to tell you because you’ll only talk about me lol xxx

We are in the middle of painting the kitchen – ohh what a horrible job and I wish we’d never started it because it is driving me up the wall. But I’m sure it will be nice once it's done. Kyla, bless her, came round yesterday and saw that we’d moved all the furniture and collection of tat etc (Richard’s words, not mine) that I have in there and looked at all the bareness and said ‘ohh Grandma, isn’t it clean’. If I didn't know what she meant, I could have been offended!!!

We are slowly getting back to being a ‘grown up house’ now and most of Kyla’s toys have either gone to her new house or have been moved into her bedroom. Of course, they will all come out again when she is in residence but we are enjoying the space again.

Have a fab day chicksters – at least it has stopped raining now so that’s something. It was non stop yesterday!!! I’ll see you tomoz with an offering of Magnolia – the images that is, not the paint, although I could oblige with that one as well right now!!

Hugs to all xxx
