Photo Inspiration at Cardmadfairy's

Good Morning you happy sunny bloggers!  Friday at last with a sunny weekend to look forward to - yippee!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days and the theme this week is a photo inspiration.  Here is the picture we would like you to use:


Very topical me thinks!  I know not everyone is based in the UK but it will soon be 4th July in the US so that gives you an excuse to get your red white and blues out although I am sure a lot of you will want to join in with helping us to celebrate our Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Here is what I have made:


I have used Jenni's Tracey which you can purchase here.  I have coloured her with Copics and added some Glossy Accents to her boots. The papers are Nitwits from their Tour of London Collection.  I cut the bunting freestyle and cut the mounting for it with some fancy scissors I have had for years and years.  The red white and blue twine is from my stash.  The mat for the image is Romantic Rectangles from Spellbinders - so pretty!  I have attached a red, white and a blue gem to the crown and put it at a jaunty angle on her head!  The gems and crown are from my stash.  The corner piece is a Dienamics die. So please pop over to Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge and see what the rest of the DT have made.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - No Flowers Allowed
Digi Doodles - Let's Go Spotty
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything for Kids
Willow Sketchie - Red, White and Blue and/or Sketch
Paper Pretties - Bold Bright Colours
The Paper Shelter - Bling
Papertake Weekly - Red White and Blue
Desmet Designs - Red White and Blue
Glitter Geeks - Diamond Jubilee

A big welcome to my new follower! I'm meeting a friend today for a coffee and have quite a lot to do today, we are having a BBQ tomorrow and Sunday so I need to prepare.  Tomorrow is Eurovision so might have a bit of a Eurovision party/BBQ I did say to my DH that we should all dress up in participating nation's national dress but he didn't seem too impressed with that - I wonder why??  See you tomorrow and take care xx
