Christmas Fairies...

Hello again...
I'm back as promised with some Christmas fairies...
I've made a few in different colourways...
This is the first and I opted for a traditional Vintage look.

This beautiful stamp is of course from Wild Rose Studio.
Coloured with Promarkers. I used lots of new colours...Ruby and Moss.
 I wanted a nice warm glow around her so I used gold chalk around the edges.

I added two different coloured glitters...white and lemon

The papers are all from the WRS Christmas collection. The text paper is DCVW.
 Olive Green and Ruby Red with Cream and Gold...Just lovely!

Just had to use some pretty flowers...

Craft Fair...No.1..DONE!

Hello there peeps...
I had meant to post something for you a few nights ago but I just couldn't get a connection.

I have been busy sewing during the evenings and tonight I did the first of the 3 Christmas fairs that I have booked in...
A local village Hall in the West Sussex countryside... 

Aswell as the usual cards I have also been making some keyrings....
Some with felt .....

and some made from Crochet flowers that were given to me by a crafty friend. I added some buttons and some pink net...

I loved making these...
but my stock of flowers is running out so I think I may need to learn how to crochet them....
I'm having a relaxing day tomorrow...more sewing and watching tv.
Hope you all have a good weekend!
I'll be back soon with some very girly christmas fairies....x

We went to her 18th Birthday party last weekend and boy, did I feel old!
The large flower is made using a large heart punch.
I used different Pink DP that I them mounted onto black...

A die cut '18' and lots of mini jewels added.
