Sorry folks, it's another fairy!

Hello lovely people...

...and big hugs and thank you to the people who have chosen to follow me here on my new blog - so lovely to have you along :-)

I have had a busy weekend starting with a lovely catch up with some family on Saturday and having fun playing with my niece and nephew.  Then I had a day of housework and crafting on Sunday.  Oh, and Dr Hubby helped me put together 2 drawer units ready for my craft room reorganisation.  I got all the bits and pieces that I wanted from Ikea on Wednesday but probably won't have time to put it all in place until the bank holiday weekend.  Something to look forward to :-)

After all that waffle I do have an actual card to show you using this Deconstructed Sketch for inspiration;
I only fiddled with the sketch a weeny bit and here it is;
I used the 'out of the box' technique to cut the image out with a circle nestie whilst leaving the wings hanging off the top and layered it onto a scallop circle cut with my Cricut.  The seam binding ruffle was created with the help of lots of tiny bits of double sided tape!
I have had this stamp for a while but somehow never got round to using it until now.  I have coloured the image with Copics, twice in fact because I got ink on the background the first time round  :-(
Card recipe; 
Image: Kraftin' Kimmie - Fairy Lilybelle
DP: Maja Designs Vintage Spring Basics (yes, again but they are so pretty!)
Seam binding: from Crafty Ribbons
Lace: from The Ribbon Girl (Rebecca lace)
Sentiment: Personal Impressions Big Sentiments
Pearls: Kaisercraft

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  In the Pink (ribbons and ruffles)
2.  ABC (lovely lace)
3.  By the Cute and Girly (vintage)
4.  Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)
5.  The Deconstructed Sketch (#99)

Ribbons and pearls

Hello lovely people, 

Weekend did that happen?!  I have a lovely weekend of family stuff planned  so this is a very quick post from me to share my DT card for Totally Gorjuss.  Our theme this week is 'Ribbons and Pearls' so pretty easy, huh?  We are sponsored by the lovely Milk and Coffee digistamps so I have used one of their sweet images, Fairy Tiffany.
I had a lot of fun colouring this image with my Copics;

Welcome along

Hello lovely people,

Welcome to my new home for posting about my crafting adventures!
So, why the change?  Well, I have been with Wordpress for a while and just got a bit annoyed with the lack of ability to customise the templates so decided it was time to move to Blogger and here I am!

If you want to see what I was up to before I moved then click here.

Hope you like my new look and thanks for visiting,

Hugs, Kat xx
