Fairy 'nough

Good morning everyone, well its almost time for the Bank Holiday Weekend to start and lo and behold our nice weather seems to have disappeared!  Its been lovely here in Blackpool for the last two days nice and sunny and quite warm but its a completely different picture as I look through my velux window in my garret this morning!!

For today's picture I have followed the sketch over at The Paper Shelter:


The image is from The Paper Shelter and I have coloured her with Copics and Pencils.  She has been cut and matted using Spellbinders.  The flower is made with my Magnolia Doohickey die and the corners are from Whimsy.  Papers are First Edition.  The ribbon is from my stash and the charm was a gift with my order from My Crafty Heart - thank you Teresa.  I have added Glossy Accents topped with Glamour Dust to the dew drops and Glamour Dust to her wings. I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter - Sketch
Crafts 4 Eternity - Maypole Ribbons
Anything Goes Challenge - Things with Wings
Creative Card Crew - Ribbon
Tuesday Throwdown - In the Garden


Well I am off to the hair dressers this morning for my monthly visit it seems to come round quicker and quicker!  Hope you all have a great day and thanks so much for looking - take care xx

PS does anyone know how to get rid of these pesky I Phone ads that come up over highlighted words (corners up above)?  I have not put it in and I have noticed it on other people's blogs.

Hello Susan. Oh how beautiful and such gorgeous colours. I love the edging on the circle die, it is like teardrops, and it really highlights that gorgeous image. Beautiful papers and I love the floral element in the corner and the addition of the charm hanging from the bow. Stunning.
Have a lovely day.
