Summer Fairy, or maybe not!

Hello blogland,

Been quiet again this week on the old bloggy blog while it's been half-term in real life - I wonder if the two could be related?

All I managed craft wise was to finish off one card from last week and then made a one new one this week to join in with a couple of challenges.

I'll share the other card next week, but this one I need to get on the blog to join in with challenges that finish first.  The image is called Summer Fairy, but I thought what's in a name - she doesn't need to be a 'Summer' fairy and why not colour her in cooler 'Winter' colours.

So card:

Supplies used:

Digital stamp:
All Dressed Up - Summer Fairy
coloured with Copics
Rubber stamp:
taylored expressions - Simple Strips : Birthday

taylored expressions -  Simple Strips : Well Rounded

Anything else:
Meiflower - heart embellishments

What I did:
Printed the digi stamp on Copic friendly paper and coloured her in.
Cut the image panel to fit my DL card base and glued it down.
Glued on the heart embellishments.
Stamped and die-cut the sentiment, added 3d foam to the back of it and added to the panel.

et voila, job done!

These pictures are for my bloggy friend, and are the new 'toys' I brought at the Harrogate stamp show last weekend.  Here you go, Susan, new stash pictures!

That's it for now, will be back after the weekend - hope you all have a good one!

Signing off,

As You Like It Challenge: Favourite: Critter or People (&why) - for me it's people, I just like colouring characters as there are so many options - skin tones, hair colours, even through to zombies / vampires and other mythical beings.
