Bubble Bath.....................


Hope you have had a good weekend, we had beautiful sunshine and I think it is set to continue for a few days too.  I have done something to my camera, it has a black spot on the bottom right corner and I cant get rid of it must be some damage to the lens? I pretty much covered it on this one with my watermark, don't know if its fixable or not???

I would also like to say a big HELLO to my new followers, had quite a few join me over the past couple of weeks so thank you.  Got just a few more to go to 150 and then I think some blog candy will be in order!!!

I managed to get a card done today for my SIL birthday, I have to say I was rolling up when I saw this image, honestly it really does look like her, so funny....Its a really fun image though and fab to colour up.

Stamp - Prairie Fairy - Bath n Bubbles Gilly
Colouring medium - Copics
Papers - Mix, pink spots Craft Creations, Cerise EP Country Drive
Brazil basics cardstock
Sentiment - Stampin up

Rest from stash

I planned on entering into Fairy Fun Fridays but I forgot the distressed bit LOl, couldn't find any others that it fits.
