Something a little different..

Hi there

I'm here again today.... (yep... nothing for a week, then two come along together!)... this time with the next Sugar Nellie challenge...

I decided to have a change and to make use of one of the MDF pencil holders I bought at the Harrogate Papercrafts show.  A very good friend of mine ADORES Pippi Longsocks...  so I decided to make this for her birthday- so that Pippi can keep an eye on her craft desk for her while she's not there.... making sure the other fairies don't get naughty and start spilling her precious Distress Inks etc while they are dancing on her desk..

I used some Pink Petticoat digi paper and some kraft card to cover the holder - then added the Pippi image - and of course decoupaged her wings.... then added lots of sparkle....  I mean to say, a self-respecting fairy HAS to have a sparkle, doesn't she??

And that was it!

We'd love you to pop over to the Sugar Nellie Challenge Blog to check out what the other lovely sweeties have come up with... they are fabulous! And don't forget, if you enter, one lucky winner will get to choose FOUR lovely pieces of rubber from the fabulous..


Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
