What do you think?

I just want your opinion of this little fairy. Any comments appreciated.


Blog Hopping

I've been ahving a great time blog hopping lately and I've been amazed at the fantastic work on some of the blogs that are hardly ever visited. I've always left a message to show how much I love what's been done.

Come on sisters.... I advise a good hour of blog hopping and leave comments other wise they don't know that you've visited.

Colour Challenge

Roses on Paper & Belles 'n Whistles combined Challenge Blog! have a colour challenge for Cranberry, Hunter Green and/or Gold! so I just had to make this little book and use those three colours. I've just spotted a challenge for embossing on Inky impressions so I just had to enter that too. What a surprise.

The stamp is from the new stamps from 'I Brake for Stamps' that can be found in out new in section on the Craft Fairy site.
The image was embossed in old gold embossing powder that I had in my stash and it was then coloured in using the, Zig, Kuretake Art and Graphic pens.
I love this stamp as I think that it looks really rich and baroque. Just perfect for Christmas. Next, I plan to make it look very late spring, early summer which is when the poppies bloom.

Little Presents

This is the time of year that every sort of givt needs to be packed with love and care. This is especially true since Kirstie Allsop showed us her idea of a homemade Christmas. Now we all have to make something cute to hand on our gifts.

So wonderfully, the challenge this week on the Stamp with Fun site is for little presents so instead of making a card I decided to make a bag similar to the blue one that I made before.

This cute little bag is embellished with a scalloped edged piece of card front and back and layered up with brown paper that I had in my stash. The little perfume bottle is from Savvy Stamps and is on special offer at the moment on the Craft Fairy site.
The brown dotty ribbon is here, and the pink dotty ribbon is here.

Poinsettia Card for Christmas

When else you might ask, but all will be revealed later on in the year when I show you how to use a poinsettia stamp that is not for Christmas. Today, however, I've decided to use this lovely stamp in the Red and Green challenge

I know that I've made red and green cards already but this one is really traditional so here are some details as well as the card.

All items linked below are available from Craft Fairy.



Happy crafting.
