Hugs and Kisses....

Hi Lovely Blogging Friends....

I seem to be on a colouring roll at the moment...  you know when you can't wait to get in your craft room and colour ANOTHER image??  That's kinda how it is with me! Unfortunately, the dreaded (shhhhhhhhh) housework is suffering...  but hey... the dust will still be there tomorrow - so I'll actually be saving myself time... yes??  Well that's my logic!

I was having a Tiddlyinks moment... I have seen some beautiful Tiddlyinks Creations recently, so dug into my bulging computer files and saw amongst all my other Tiddlyinks images,  this gorgeous little fairy..... Fairy Tenderhearted...  oooh she's just soooo cute - and she flew out at me, whispering about a lovely new die that's (ahem...) landed in my stash recently and saying that she'd like to be placed sitting above said die... so who was I to argue??

Card Recipe:
Paper - Basic Grey Sugar Rush
Die - Noor Design Joy Autumn 6002/0317
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
Punch - Stampin Up Word Window

I've decided along with a lot of other talented crafters, to throw my hat in the ring and have a go at the Tiddlyinks DT call as I do sooooo love their images..  so wish me luck!

I nearly left it a bit too late - but have made it by the skin of my teeth!

Soo...  that's me done for today... but I'll be back soon!

  10. Ha ha, I knew you couldn't resist having a go at the Tiddly Inks DT call and wow, your card is certainly a stunner!
    The colours are absolutely gorgeous and that sweet fairy gave you good advice about placing her over the mushroom die - it looks sooooooo good!

    I like your theory about housework and dust too and while the colouring mojo is flowing it must not be denied!

    Big hugs, Kat xx
