It's Magic

Edit: I am having serious problems with Blogger. I am trying to catch up with all my comments from the last few days. However when I comment and try to post comment it just disappears and doesn't say your comment has been saved and will be published after approval.  Some seem to just appear. I tested on my blog and nothing then tried again and it published right away even though I have comment moderation on! So apologies if you have not received a comment - I am trying!!!

Oh my goodness the first of July - and not one Christmas card made yet - eeeek! Oh well plenty of time to panic over that lol!  We have a brand new challenge for you at A Little Bit Crafty and the theme this month is It's Magic.  I have gone with a fairy:

The beautiful image is by and has been coloured with my Copics.  Papers are Nitwits Petal Fresh. The sentiment is Pink Petticoat and I used a Dienamics die to cut it out.  I used a sketch from Papertake Weekly but I think I have missed the challenge!  Here is another view:

We have some brilliant sponsors this month:

£10 worth of products

Prize to be Arranged

                                                         Designs By Ryn

Mermaids/Bubbles/Coral Stamps

Prize to be arranged

So please take a look at A Little Bit Crafty Challenge for some more fabulous inspiration from the DT and we would love to see what you come up with!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Thank you so much for calling in today and for the lovely comments! Take care xx

This really is beautiful Susan, that image is amazing and those papers really go well, I love those ditsy prints (think that's how to spell it) but if not, I think you know what I mean. LOL.

Hope your blogger sorts itself out soon - it really is frustrating!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
