I fancied a bit of gingham...

Hi lovely blogging friends...

Firstly - I'd love to say a very big welcome to my newest followers.... thank you for choosing to follow my little bit of blogland...

Now - time for another challenge at Anything Goes...  the theme is 'Checks, Stripes and Flowers' ..... well I've cheated just a bit.... and used a gingham background from Pink Petticoat (it actually is plum but looks blue-y purple on the pic)...  and for the stripes - check out her trousers and hair-band....  and the flowers - well - she's carrying them!  Not sure if I'll be put in the naughty corner for this one...

The image is actually a fab pre-coloured Wee Stamps Card Topper called Silver Fairy... and is available from The Hobby House.  All I added was a bit of glitter......

The dies I've used are Li'l Inkers Stitched Scallop Border, and La La Land Crafts Stitched Tabs ...  and the sentiment is computer generated.

Do pop over to Anything Goes and check out the inspiration from my fellow DT members... they've come up with some stunners.  And don't forget, lots of fab crafty goodies can be obtained from Lynn at The Craft Den.

Big hugs and Happy Crafting
