It's A Girl Thing

Hello there Happy Sunday and a big welcome to my two new followers Julie and Linda I'm so honoured that you have decided to follow me - welcome aboard.

The NEC was wonderful so tiring but great to see all the different things. I came back with loads of goodies to play with - picture at the end.  Today is a new challenge at Hobbycutz and this week we want to see Girly But No Pink! Easy peasy right? Although I must admit I do love my pink its still easy enough to make a girly card using other colours.  Here is mine:


I have used the gorgeous Faerie Dandelion from our sponsor Whimsy - thank you.  She has been coloured with Copics and I used Frantage Shabby Blue around the edges.  The papers are Nitwits Petal Fresh.  I used my Spellbinders Grand Circles and  Stately Circles to cut and mat her.  The die cut is Memory Box Chloe Stem and the leaf from Fabulous Phlox.  I painted my pretty butterfly lasercut with Acrylic paint and then Frantaged that too there are lots of lasercuts available here at the Hobbycutz store.  Here is another view:


Have a look at the Hobbycutz challenge for further inspiration from the Design Team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Aloha Fridays - Things With Wings
Paper Creator - Spring is in the Air
Digi Haven - Things With Wings
Stampin' For The Weekend - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts - Things With Wings

Finally, a picture of my goodies:


Thank you so much for coming to see me today, I will be back tomorrow. Take care xx
