My Friday Offering...

Happy Friday girls! Here is my latest offering - again it's a Mo Manning image, this time it's Sorry Shanna - and I love her! She has such a lovely 'sorry' face... she's just perfect! I coloured her with my copics (d'oh!!), then shaded her around the edge of the shape with Adirondack Lights - Pink Sherbert. It's the only pink that has a touch of lilac in it to shade with that I can find. The DP I've used is from and it's from their Key Lime Pie Fancy range - it's called Heavenly. Not sure where I picked it up from but it was in my stash... I used Nestabilities for the oval shape, then used a Martha Stewart punch for the long edges. Then I used an EK success retro daisy punch (yes Peri, I got one!), and finished the flowers with some bling from Stamping Bella, then some ........... guess what............ GLITTER! (Tho you can't really see it on the photo...... )

I went to Art from the Heart in Harrogate this morning, as they had emailed to say they had a new range of Prima Marketing papers in........ they were FAB-U-LOUS..... and of course girls, I had to BUY! But then again, it'll save me fighting to get near their stand at the Harrogate Papercraft show in September - I had the whole shop to myself today to wander around at my leisure! And these Fairyland and Jack & Jill papers........... to DIE for! MMMmmmmmmmmmm think they may stay in my stash for a while for me to stroke....! Would seem so cruel to cut into them, wouldn't it?

I've also added a pic here of a fairy I made recently - just to show that I can turn my hand to make more than cards at times.... thought you may like to see! She's so easy to make with soft netting and a wooden bead.... I also use some, hmmm, is it Angelina Fibre? The stuff you iron between two sheets of paper and it comes out welded together and flat and fabulous! Anyway, hope you like - I always love to hear your comments!

Better go now, shopping to do - and it's sunny outside!

Take care and have a good weekend
