Best Friends

Good Afternoon

Are you enjoying the sunshine?,... what a fab day here is Maidstone, although I have spent all of it indoors, first doing the very boring housework and then in my crafty cupboard.

I would like to say thanks for the lovely comments lately, especially on my KK Club Kid in lilac, I got lots of comments on my colouring which I am really chuffed about because I have been really practising. My colouring doesn't normally get mentioned so maybe the practising is starting to pay off.

I have made a little card today using Best Friends from LOTV (like you didn't know!) LOL. My daughter is going to give it to her friend for her birthday.




The little sentiment is also from LOTV and the papers are FF 'Retro'. Gems and flowers and ribbon from stash. I got that NS little vellum butterfly again in this one, but is sooo cute!

We've gone a bit dotty at Fab N Funky!!!

Good Morning

YES its half way to the weekend!!!!! Yipee!!!!

Time for a new challenge at Fab N funky and this week are proud to be sponsored once again by


.

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is happy to offer the winner of this challenge 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 digital paper set of their choice.


This week our challenge is .............................................

"all spotty and dotty!"

Just use loads of spots and dots on your projects, simples!!!







Bit miffed this one has not photographed well, probably my crappy photography skills, or lack of, but really the colours are much lighter in real life, looks a bit heavy in the pics.

Had a little play with some of my new stash that I got from Ally Pally. The stamp of course is from LOTV and she is coloured with copics and the wings are glamour dusted to the extreme!! The papers are from the dotty pack from Wild Rose Studio. I got the flowers from Hobby house at the show, just love the colours. I used my new Nellie Snellen butterfly punch and emboss (coz I haven't got enough butterfly ones LOl). The cute little WISH tag I also got from the show but I am not sure from which stand.

I hope you will go dotty with us this week!!
