No fibs... just the truth!

Hi Ladies....

Hope you're all well...  and hugs for those that aren't..  I'm having a few computer issues at the mo (getting used a new one and having to relearn everything over again!)... and there's lots of other things going on in the family - so I may be quiet and a little stressed... but I'm still around..

Today I'm here with my fortnightly inspiration post for Sugar Nellie..  

I've used 'Time Together' - available HERE from the store at Funky Kits.

She came in digi format, and was a joy to colour (as are all the fairies).  Now, the no fibs bit.... I could tell you that I wanted to just focus on the image by not putting any more details... but that would be a lie as I just ran out of time so had to throw this together quickly!  And I could tell you that it's perfect... but it isn't, as I put the little postmark stamp upside down!  I mean... who ever heard of being able to put a circle 'upside down'?  Hmmmf!  But I had no time to even cover it with a snowflake, so sorry, it stays! LOL!

Basically I used my Copics to colour.....  an LOTV Festive Trimmings 8 x 8 pad of Christmas paper.. a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch... a Lil' Inkers Stitched Square Die.. and a little postmark stamp from LOTV.

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting..

  9. Gorgeous card, love the pink and green and the cute image, and the backing papers go so very well.
    Oh that is something I am dreading, my computer is playing up in various ways and while I would like a new one the thought of having to get it all sorted and learn new ways is making me hope I can push on longer with this one.
