Fairy Wish & the blog candy I won!

Fairy Wish

Hiya!  It's a lovely sunny day here in Manchester - let's hope it stays that way!  AND it's the weekend, at last!  I made this card using one of the Lavinia stamps that I bought at the Port Sunlight craft show:

The did the background with DI (Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet & Frayed Burlap) and the images are stamped in Versafine Black & Smokey Gray.  The leaves are a Paper Artsy Stamp (which is outline, so I had to fill them in with the Versafine!).  It's mounted onto a black card with some paper from Desert Sands pad.  Some ribbon, a few gems, Jones Tones Glitter (which gets everywhere!) and a word tile to finish it.

My First Blog Candy Winnings - Ever!

I won Mervi's blog candy!!!  I'm so excited, and it arrived all the way from South Finland on Thursday:

A stunning and beautifully made notebook - the image on the front lifts up to reveal the text - and a lovely stamp for me to colour up, and a beautiful lacy die cut with a message on the back!  Please check out her blog - she has some beautiful creations.

It's so nice to receive something that somebody else had made with such love and care, as it's usually me that does the making, lol! So, thank you so much Mervi!  I will treasure it :-)

Anyway, that's it for now - I'm home all weekend for a change so am working on some DT pieces, but will hopefully get something else done for my blog.

I'm going to enter my "Fairy Wishes" card into The Artistic Stamper - Hot, Hot, Hot Colours (I might just about qualify?), and Make It Monday - Anything Goes, Inspire Me Fridays - Always Anything Goes,

See you soon.
