In The Pink - Things with Wings...

Hi Bestest Blogging Buddies..

It's been another mad rush week...  we had a few days away last week (down to the Isle of Wight to see lots of friends and then to Dorset to see Barry's grandsons - we had a lovely time)...  so I've spent this week catching up with what I should have been doing then! (does that sound Irish?  follow if you can!)

Anyway - it's time for another challenge at In The Pink - this time the theme is PINK WITH WINGS - easy for me you would think as I have sooooooooo many fairy stamps and images..... and then I had to choose...... hmmmmmm....  I don't do decisions... so it took me some time!  Anyway... I decided to use a Lili of the Valley image - as I always love these little cuties!

Materials used:
Image - LOTV - Fairy with Dove
Colouring - Promarkers and Copics
DP - Pink Dotty - Crafter's Companion
Square Doily from stash
Flower Die - Cheery Lyn Miniature Rose 
Ribbon, glitter, gems from stash

I had a bit of an accident while we were away - believe it or not, in the soft play centre we took the grand-kiddies to - I tripped over a pair of shoes... turned my ankle and went headlong forward - thought I'd righted myself half way (you know the feeling?), but hadn't.... so went (log like) full length on the floor!  I have a really nasty bruised leg (good for some sympathy?), and a VERY bruised pride!!  But it could have been worse - there was a metal girder about 2 inches away from where I fell.... if I'd have head butted that, it would have split my head open!  Barry scooped me up quickly and got me out of the limelight fast... I was becoming an instant attraction - Nanny Christine on the floor!

Now - quickly - I'd like to share a couple of pics.  The first is of a fabulous rose I found in my garden this week.. (you may have already seen it on Facebook - but Jackie - this is for you!)..

And the second couple of photos are of the grandsons I mentioned above...

Cuties aren't they?  But then again... I'm a little biased!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
